Panthers drop Dwan Edwards

Thursday has brought a pair of changes to the Panthers defensive line.

Shortly after announcing the release of defensive end Charles Johnson, the Panthers announced that they have also released defensive tackle Dwan Edwards. Edwards was set to make $1.6 million in salary and a roster bonus this season and the Panthers get all of that back under the cap, although there is $500,000 in dead money as a result of the move.

Edwards was a second-round pick by the Ravens in 2004 and spent the first six years of his career in Baltimore before moving on to Buffalo for two years. He signed with the Panthers in 2012 and started 17 games his first two seasons before moving into a backup role behind Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei in the interior of the line.

With Kyle Love headed for free agency, the Panthers will need to restock their depth behind the two starters.

    Dave Gentleman is serious about keeping the Panthers in stable financial condition and I like it.

    One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure. I sure hope Atlanta can pick up a couple of these guys getting cut. He, Charles Johnson, and Chris Long would be HUGE upgrades for the Falcons!!!!!!!!!

    Both of last years starting defensive ends are gone along with backup Edwards. I guess Gettleman is going with a youth movement. We shall see how that works out.
