With Panters starting receiver David Gettis destined for injured reserve with a torn ACL, Carolina’s team needs a new wideout.
And so, with Bills receiver Lee Evans apparently available, the Panthers apparently are interested.
So says Steve Reed of CarolinaGrowl.com, who reports via Twitter that a source outside the Panthers organization says that the team has inquired about Evans.
The free-agency cupboard is largely bare, which may force the Panthers to find a guy on the street and fill up the depth chart from within.
Internal options include Armanti Edwards, Brandon LaFell, Legedu Naanee, and David Clowney.
Other teams who have been linked to Evans include the Cardinals and the Ravens.
UPDATE: And now Reed reports that the Panthers won’t be trading for Lee Evans.
