The Panthers have cut wide receiver Brenton Bersin, reports Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer (via Twitter). No corresponding move has been made, but Person wonders if the team may be looking to acquire some offensive line depth. Starting left tackle Michael Oher will miss this weekend’s game with a concussion.
Bersin joined the Panthers as an undrafted free agent in 2012. The Wofford College product had a solid rookie campaign, hauling in 13 catches for 151 yards and a touchdown. He also served as one of the Panthers’ return men, averaging nearly 24-yards on kickoffs and six-yards on punts. The 26-year-old played nine games (two starts) in 2015, but he’s only seen the field for one of the Panthers’ three games in 2016. Bersin also briefly spent time playing for the Arizona Rattlers of the Arena Football League.
