Dante Moncrief’s been cut for the second time this season.

The Panthers announced that they put Moncrief on waivers on Friday afternoon. They need the roster spot in order to promote wide receiver/kick returner Greg Dortch from the practice squad.

Moncrief joined the Panthers after being waived by the Steelers in early November. Moncrief signed with Pittsburgh as a free agent and opened the season as a starter, but a flurry of dropped passes led to his benching and, eventually, his release.

Moncrief had four catches for 18 yards in five games for the Steelers. He had no catches in three games for the Panthers.

Dortch returned two punts for 11 yards and two kickoffs for 52 yards against the Titans earlier this season. That game was his regular season debut.

  1. The Eagles NEED to put in CLAIM for him before I even finish this post. I don’t care if he can’t catch a ball or even run decent routes…the kid can FLY and stretch the field, which opens up the short game. THAT’s what the Wentz & the Eagles need right now.

  2. Never understood why the Panthers claimed him. If you can’t catch, you can’t produce, and if you can’t produce defenses won’t be worried in the slightest.

  3. Moncrief’s first five years in the league were productive. He had nearly 700 yards with the Jags in 2018. He must have gotten lazy after getting his $9M salary in 2018. The Steelers didn’t know that when they gave him a $9M contract to be a bum. This year he has four catches in eight games. He was cut by the Steelers when he forgot how to catch. Hopefully he saved some of the $4M+ he got from the Steelers or else he’ll be flipping burgers next year.
