The Panthers are the latest team to announced their initial wave of roster cuts. Carolina will need to make further transactions in order to comply with the 53-man roster maximum on Saturday.

The following players were cut by the Panthers today:

Released:

None of Carolina’s cuts should come as much of a surprise, although there was some thought Clausell might stick on the club’s roster given its injuries along the offensive line.

Redskins Waive David Bruton

The Redskins announced that they have waived safety David Bruton from the reserved/injured list. In related moves, cornerback Dashaun Phillips has been promoted to the active roster and tackle Blaine Clausell has been waived.

After spending the first seven seasons of his career with the Broncos, Bruton joined the Redskins on a three-year, $9MM deal in March. In 2015, he set career highs in several categories, including tackles (43), interceptions (two), and passes defended (seven). Unfortunately, he was not able to keep the momentum going in D.C. and was placed on IR in early October because of a concussion.

Bruton ended up collecting $3.4MM from the Redskins for four appearances, all starts, to go with 28 tackles and a sack. Assuming he clears waivers – and it’s a good bet he will – Bruton will be eligible to sign with another club.

Phillips, 25, started in two of three appearances with the Redskins earlier this year, and has seen action in nine of Washington’s games since last season. The 2014 undrafted free agent from Tarleton State previously spent time with the Cowboys and Jets organizations.

Redskins Place TE Niles Paul On IR

The Redskins have placed tight end Niles Paul on injured reserve with an torn labrum, head coach Jay Gruden announced to the media today. In a corresponding move, Washington announced that it has signed offensive tackle Blaine Clausell off the Ravens’ practice squad."<strong

Paul, 27, had played on less than 20% of the Redskins’ offensive snaps, and had garnered only two targets while playing behind Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis. Known more for his run-blocking aptitude than his receiving prowess, Paul had also been a key special teams player, having seen action on nearly two-thirds of Washington’s ST plays. Paul is currently signed through the 2017 campaign as part of a three-year extension he agreed to in 2015.

Speaking to reporters, Gruden indicated that the Redskins would consider adding an outsider to fill Paul’s role, but the team also has an internal candidate to take his place. Derek Carrier, who began the season on the PUP list, began practicing again today, opening a three-week window during which Washington can choose to activate him. The Redskins also boast tight end Wes Saxton on their practice squad.

Clausell, 24, was an undrafted free agent out of Mississippi State in 2015. He’ll slot in behind Ty Nsehke, Morgan Moses, and Vinston Painter at offensive tackle while Trent Williams serves his four-game suspension.
