The Panthers are not interested in the former LSU football and track star, according to a league source. Holliday joined the Giants during the offseason but was placed on IR with a hamstring injury in August.
The Panthers have indicated they will stick with Brown. The undrafted free agent from Ohio State is responsible for two touchdowns as a punt returner -- one for Pittsburgh and one for his own team when he alertly picked up a loose ball against Chicago and jetted 79 yards for the game's first score.
Brown is a smart player with a high ceiling and plenty of confidence. And while he's managed to make even a couple of fair catches interesting, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Monday his biggest issue was getting Brown some help with better blocking.

Manningham has dealt with a nagging injury that has plagued him over the past two years. The report also states he'll be set to be released, with his career likely over. In addition, the Giants placed return specialist Trindon Holliday on IR too due to an ankle injury.

Jerrel Jernigan, who's been running with the first team in Beckham's place all summer, looks like a strong bet as well, especially since he's Cruz's primary backup at the slot receiver position. Undrafted rookie Corey Washington has caught a touchdown pass in each of the Giants' first four preseason games and has obviously helped his cause.
Preston Parker, who caught 40 passes for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2011 but was out of football last season, appears to be the primary punt returner right now with Beckham and Trindon Holliday hurt, and that could help him earn a spot as a wide receiver as well. Julian Talley also survived Tuesday's cuts and therefore remains a candidate to be kept.
One of the odd men out seems to be Mario Manningham who has struggled at times but has shown flashes lately. The team is apparently going to keep four TEs which could make it tough to keep six WRs.

Giants first-round pick WR Odell Beckham Jr. still hasn't completed a full practice at training camp. He's making progress, but was limited again Tuesday by a hamstring problem aggravated during the first practice of the summer.
Beckham's health struggles haven't tempered the Giants' expectations for the 12th-overall pick in the draft. In fact, with return specialist Trindon Holliday (hamstring) struggling to get on the field, the team's coaching staff seems even more intent on increasing Beckham's role, once he's healthy.
When asked where the Giants stand with their punt returner right now, coach Tom Coughlin didn't even mention Holliday. The only name he uttered was Beckham's.
"Beckham will be a big part of it once he gets back," Coughlin said. "We have a lot of people that are trying it, but once we get Beckham out there, it will crystalize for us."
