Carolina Panthers cut former ASU standout Edwards
Armanti Edwards’ career as a Carolina Panther is over.
Edwards was waived by the Panthers on Tuesday, ending a three-year tenure with the team that drafted him back in 2010.
Originally a quarterback at Appalachian State, Edwards was converted to a wide receiver by the Panthers after they drafted him with the 89th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
He tallied just five catches in his career with Carolina — all coming last year. His biggest catch was an 82-yard grab against the Washington Redskins.
The move leaves the Panthers with four receivers on its active roster, including Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn and Domenik Hixon.
Ginn and Hixon were both brought in to the team this offseason — Ginn from San Francisco and Hixon from the New York Giants.
It’s been a week of big headlines for the Panthers since losing 22-6 on the road to the Arizona Cardinals.
Carolina lost guard Amini Silatolu for the season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL).
Silatolu is the third Panther to have been lost for the season, joining right guard Garry Williams (knee) and free safety Charles Godfrey (achilles).
Cutting Edwards wasn’t the only move that the Panthers made on Tuesday.
The team also terminated the contract of wide receiver Cordell Roberson and signed wide receiver Toney Clemons to the practice squad.
