After acquiring Marshall Newhouse from the Bills on Tuesday, the Panthers waived fellow offensive tackle Corey Robinson, according to Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio (Twitter link).
Like Newhouse, Robinson was sent to the Panthers via trade, as Carolina shipped a conditional 2020 seventh-round pick to Detroit in exchange for the 26-year-old. Those conditions were evidently tied to Robinson’s time on the Panthers’ roster and were not met, tweets Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, who notes Carolina will now recoup that draft selection.
Robinson, a seventh-round pick in the 2015 draft, appeared in 23 games and made eight starts during his first three years in the NFL, all of which came with the Lions. He played in the Panthers’ first two contests of 2018, but only spent time on special teams (zero offensive snaps, three ST snaps).
The Panthers have dealt with numerous injuries to their offensive line this year, and projected tackle starters Matt Kalil and Daryl Williams are both on injured reserve. At present, Carolina is fielding Chris Clark, Greg Van Roten, Ryan Kalil, Trai Turner, and Taylor Moton left-to-right.
