The Athletic’s Joe Person says Panthers QB Will Grier has overtaken QB P.J. Walker for the No. 2 job, with his ability to push the ball downfield giving him a slight edge over Walker’s dual-threat abilities.
Person believes Panthers K/P Kaare Vedvik is a decent bet to make the practice squad.
Person lists cornerback, linebacker and wide receiver as areas he expects the Panthers to look at making a claim on waivers following roster cuts.
