Panthers cut WR Tavarres King

The Panthers have cut second-year wide receiver Tavarres King, according to a league source.

Carolina claimed King off waivers from Denver last October, and he remained on the active roster the rest of the season.

Cornerback James Dockery tweeted that he's also been cut.

After general manager overhauled the receiving corps during the offseason, King and Marvin McNutt were the only receivers left from last year's active roster. Both are now gone: McNutt was part of the Panthers' first round of cuts this week.

King's departure would seem to signal that former Wofford WR Brenton Bersin and undrafted rookie WR/PR Philly Brown have made the team, unless Gettleman has targeted a free agent.

Bersin will be a star. I agree with Gettleman and Rivera. Totally the right move though I have nothing bad to say about King or any of those other fellas. It sucks. BUT, write it down. Bersin has star quality.

We needed someone with some quickness. Philly is kept because he is going to play more than one position. Which is scary with Philly dropping that punt Thursady night. I'll be shting bricks every time they punt it to him.
I like Bersin also but not at the expense of keeping him just because he's home town!
