Seth Roberts hasn’t seen many balls come his way this season, and now he’ll be looking for a new home. The Panthers have cut the veteran receiver, the team announced Monday.
We heard right after final cuts that Carolina was shopping Roberts, but obviously they couldn’t find any takers. Roberts got a one-year, $3.75MM deal from the Panthers back in March, and ended up only catching four passes for 31 yards for the team. Despite the lack of production he was still receiving real playing time, and he played 41 percent of the defensive snaps just yesterday against the Saints.
A 2014 UDFA from West Alabama, Roberts spent the first five years of his career in Oakland. He had some real success with the Raiders, notching at least 397 yards in four straight seasons from 2015-18. He also had five touchdowns in two of those campaigns. He spent last year with the Ravens and finished with 271 yards and two scores.
Carolina has plenty of talent at receiver with the likes of D.J. Moore, Robby Anderson, and Curtis Samuel, so Roberts wasn’t really needed much. Still only 29, Roberts should resurface on a cheap deal with a team in need of receiving help at some point soon.
