Panthers Cut WRs Underwood, McNutt, Pilares

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Panthers announced they have cut 10 players, including wide receivers Tiquan Underwood, Marvin McNutt and Kealoha Pilares.

The team also released wide receiver Toney Clemons, tackle Oscar Johnson, defensive linemen Lindon Gaydosh, Alex Hall and Craig Roh, linebacker Anthony Morales and punter Jordan Gay.

Underwood was signed earlier this offseason as a free agent to replace wide receiver/returner Ted Ginn Jr., who signed with the Arizona Cardinals. However, he failed to do much to impress the Panthers staff during training camp and the preseason.

Pilares was a fifth-round pick by the Panthers in 2011 who has struggled with injuries. McNutt was on Carolina's roster last season, although he never caught a pass.

Carolina's roster stands at 79 players. They need to cut four players by Tuesday's NFL deadline.
