Panthers Release WR Seth Roberts, Cut CB Josh Hawkins From PS

The Carolina Panthers announced Monday released WR Seth Roberts and cut CB Josh Hawkins from their practice squad.

Here’s the Panthers updated practice squad:

  1. RB Reggie Bonnafon (Injured)
  2. DT Bruce Hector
  3. G Mike Horton
  4. WR Ishmael Hyman
  5. DB Natrell Jamerson 
  6. WR Marken Michel
  7. LB Chris Orr
  8. TE Giovanni Ricci

  11. G Aaron Monteiro
  12. RB Pete Guerriero
  13. RB Rodney Smith
  14. DT Mike Panasiuk

Roberts had come up as a trade candidate in recent months, but it was clear there wasn’t a market for him. 

Roberts, 29, signed on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of West Alabama back in 2014. He wound up spending the season on Oakland’s practice squad before signing a future/reserve contract in December of 2015.

Roberts returned to the Raiders on a one-year, exclusive rights contract in 2017 before signing a three-year, $12 million contract that included $6.45 million guaranteed. He was set to make a base salary of $4.45 million for the 2019 season when the Raiders released him.

From there, Roberts caught on with the Ravens on a one-year deal for the 2019 season and joined the Panthers this past March.
