The Carolina Panthers have announced that they’ve parted ways with DT Ron Edwards on Friday.
Edwards, 33, signed a three-year deal worth $8.25 million with the Panthers back in 2011. He wound up starting only 11 games in his two seasons with the team and wasn’t all that effective when given the opportunity.
The Panthers will free up $1.67 million in cap space with this move. Clearly, targeting a defensive tackle in this year’s draft is priority for Carolina. Thankfully for them, it’s loaded at that position.
We have the Panthers taking Utah DT Star Lotulelei in our recently updated 2013 NFL Mock Draft.
