Panthers sign a pair of players

The Panthers said goodbye to wide receiver Armanti Edwards on Tuesday, leaving open a spot in the receiving corps.

They filled it on Wednesday by signing Marvin McNutt off of the Dolphins’ practice squad. McNutt was a sixth-round pick by the Eagles last year, but wound up on their practice squad after failing to make the team out of camp. The Eagles waived him this spring and the Dolphins claimed him, but he wound up back on the practice squad after being squeezed out in a competition for the final rungs of the depth chart.

Carolina had another open roster spot after placing guard Amini Silatolu on injured reserve and they’ve filled that one by signing center Brian Folkerts off of their own practice squad. Folkerts started the year on the team’s active roster, but was waived and re-signed to the practice squad after two weeks.

The Panthers also announced that linebackers Ben Jacobs, who was elevated from the practice squad over the weekend and waived on Monday, and Jeff Tarpinian have been signed to the practice squad.

    Yippee skipee…. Will this translate into wins, I doubt it.

    as a panthers fan its so up and down, one week we can have all the optimism in the world but at the end of it all they always play to the level of the team their playing. They find ways to keep up with the good teams and find ways to stay down with the bad. Its almost like Mike Shula coachs them to get in the redzone and fizzle out. I hope this gets figured out so us panthers fans can gain some street cred, five years has been long enough…

    McNutt??? Like he’s gonna help more than Amanti Edwards. According to sports nation he has the same issues,, he drops passes and is inconsistent. This is why we are 1and3, we keep getting everybody’s rejects instead of a Josh Gordon or a half way proven receiver. I’m sick

    Dumping Armanti Edwards, who Rivera called the MVP of training camp, for Marvin McNutt? Shrewd. Very shrewd.

    McNutt was a great receivers at Iowa and dropped very infrequently. He was much better known for catching impossible to catch passes.

    Marvin McNutt sounds like a cartoon character.
