Panthers reduce roster on Tuesday morning


CHARLOTTE — The Panthers are going with two quarterbacks for the time being.

The team announced 13 of their roster moves Tuesday morning, including Will Grier, the 2019 third-rounder who played well this preseason.

That leaves just Sam Darnold and P.J. Walker on the depth chart at the moment, though Grier could be a candidate to land on the practice squad.

The Panthers released veteran linebacker Josh Bynes. They also waived wide receiver Omar Bayless, running back Spencer Brown, defensive lineman Frank Herron, offensive lineman Mike Horton, cornerback Jalen Julius, wide receiver Keith Kirkwood, outside linebacker Christian Miller, offensive lineman Aaron Monteiro, wide receiver C.J. Saunders, tight end Stephen Sullivan, and offensive lineman Sam Tecklenburg.

That leaves six moves to make ahead of Tuesday's 4 p.m. deadline.

One of those will be to place cornerback A.J. Bouye on the reserve/suspended list, as he finishes up two weeks from last year's suspension. He doesn't count toward the 53-man roster while on the list.
