At least it wasn’t the night before the Super Bowl this time.

But the fact he couldn’t make a no-name Panthers wide receiving corps is an even worse omen for Tiquan Underwood’s career.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Panthers are including Underwood in their first round of cuts.

The Panthers were hoping he could add some speed on a budget, but he never caught the ball consistently in training camp, and didn’t make many plays in the preseason to make them keep him.

The Panthers started from scratch at the position this offseason, and rookie Kelvin Benjamin’s playing well, even though they haven’t gotten much from Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant this preseason.
