Hall Cheap Luke Kuechly Jersey , per report The Carolina Panthers are expected to cut defensive end Daeshon Hall, according to Joe Person of The Athletic.Hall was selected by the Panthers in the third round (No. 77 overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. He was expected to be an integral part of a youth movement at defensive end when he was drafted, but his rookie season was set back due to a knee injury that placed him on injured reserve.Cutting him is a strange move for the Panthers since they still lack quality youth at defensive end Cheap Christian McCaffrey Jersey , but there is a chance that this is a strategic move to hide him on the practice squad in case they suffer injuries on the defensive line this season.This all but guarantees that Bryan Cox Jr. will make the 53-man roster, as he was the biggest competitor Hall had for a roster spot. This is also likely good news for rookie Marquis Haynes, who was also battling for a place on the roster. The cuts will continue to roll in throughout the afternoon Cheap Kawann Short Jersey , so stay tuned to CSR’s roster cuts tracker for updates.Panthers 2018 season opener countdown: 6 days to go We are 6 days away from the beginning of the Carolina Panthers 2018 season. That means today we take a closer look at quarterback Taylor Heinicke.Taylor Heinicke, QuarterbackBioHeight: 6’1”Weight: 210 lbsAge: 25College: Old DominionNFL Experience: 3 yearsTaylor Heinicke was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Vikings in 2015 and bounced around a few practice squads before landing in Carolina in April 2018. He has thrown one career pass—a completion for 10 yards as a member of the Texans.Here’s a summary of Heinicke’s college career, from the Panthers’ website:Heinicke came into training camp this year to compete with Garrett Gilbert for the No. 2 quarterback job after the Panthers decided to part ways with veteran signal caller Derek Anderson. When camp started Gilbert was seen by many as the odds-on favorite to win the job Cheap Greg Olsen Jersey , but Heinicke came in and played well in the preseason—well enough to take the coveted No. 2 quarterback spot on the Panthers roster. Hopefully the only time we see him in action this season is when the Panthers are resting their starters late in a blowout victory, otherwise the Panthers could be in deep trouble if Heinicke has to see significant playing time. Let’s hope we avoid that situation.
