Panthers Shopping WR Seth Roberts

Seth Roberts may have survived final cuts, but it sounds like the Panthers wideout might not last that long on the roster. Joe Person of The Athletic reports (via Twitter) that the veteran receiver is available via trade.

The 2014 undrafted free agent out of Alabama has put together a solid career, and he only missed a pair of regular season games for the Raiders between 2015 and 2018. Following a 2019 campaign with the Ravens that saw him haul in a career-low 21 receptions, Roberts signed with the Panthers back in March.

With a wideout corps that’s led by the likes of D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and Curtis Samuel, it’s a bit surprising that the Panthers aren’t eager to stick with the 29-year-old Roberts. The veteran has shown that he can be a reliable target; between 2015 and 2018, Roberts averaged 39.5 receptions, 456.5 receiving yards, and 3.3 touchdowns per season.

Considering how many NFL teams are desperate for wideout help, it wouldn’t be shocking if Roberts ends up getting dealt, although his $3.75MM salary could end up being a hurdle.
