Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the team has released veteran Torrey Smith. Smith took a pay cut in the spring to stick around in Carolina, but even a reduced price wasn’t enough to save his roster spot for the first week of the regular season.
The Panthers also claimed a pair of wideouts off of waivers. Former Bills receiver Ray-Ray McCloud and former Vikings receiver Brandon Zylstra will be joining the Smith-free receiving corps in Carolina.
The Panthers activated linebacker Jermaine Carter and receiver Torrey Smith from the physically unable to perform list after the players passed physicals.
Both players were working their way back from knee injuries.
Smith, 30, had career lows in catches (17) and yards (190) in his first season in Carolina. He played 11 games and started six.
