- Marvin McNutt, Receiver
- De'Andre Presley, Receiver
Zordich will be cut because the team simply has no use for another fullback on the roster beyond Mike Tolbert and Richie Brockel.
The cuts at the receiver position are more interesting, and these will be the most recognizable names you'll see during the first round of cuts.
Clemons, McNutt and Presley will all be cut because of the sheer volume of receivers on the team's roster right now. All three are athletic and have potential to one day make an NFL team, but the players ahead of them on the roster have simply shown more consistency in camp.
Eliminating dropped passes is a huge sticking point for the Panthers going forward, and McNutt has had issues with holding onto the ball in his time with the team.
Likewise, the team is attempting to assemble a roster of tougher, less fragile players, and it doesn't help Presley's case that he's been riding the bike throughout camp and not on the field actively fighting for his spot.
