CHARLOTTE — The Panthers released 11 players Saturday, in advance of the moves due Tuesday to get to a 53-man roster. 

The Panthers waived the following players: Quarterback Jake Luton, running back Camerun Peoples, wide receivers Gary Jennings and CJ Saunders, tackle Larnel Coleman, defensive lineman Antwuan Jackson, linebacker Bumper Pool, safeties Collin Duncan and Josh Thomas, cornerback Rejzohn Wright, and kicker Matthew Wright.

Those moves get the roster down to 79, meaning they have another 26 moves to make between now and Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline to reach an initial 53-man roster.

During his press conference Saturday morning before the moves, Panthers head coach Frank Reich referred to the "difficult decisions" ahead.

"Literally every position has battles in place, not just for the roster, but you know, play time, who's starting, how we're looking at things," Reich said. "But the good news is they're hard decisions, right? Because we feel good about the guys we have on our roster."
