The Carolina Panthers made a couple roster moves this Tuesday. One move in particular resulted in releasing a rookie wide receiver.
This Tuesday, the Panthers signed rookie free-agent cornerback Devin Jones. In a resulting move, the NFC South franchise has cut rookie wide receiver Andrew Parchment.
Carolina signed Parchment as an undrafted free agent following the 2022 NFL Draft. He played for three college programs, including Northern Illinois, Kansas and Florida State. Overall, he had 114 catches for 1,397 yards and 12 total touchdowns in four college football seasons.
The Panthers waived the rookie on Tuesday. Parchment looks to find a new home before the 2022 season begins.
"The Panthers added some depth in the secondary Tuesday, bringing in another player with local ties," the team announced. "The Panthers signed rookie free agent cornerback Devin Jones . ... To make room for him on the roster, the Panthers waived rookie wide receiver Andrew Parchment."
Devin Jones, meanwhile, is a local product in Carolina. He played at UNC Pembroke, where he had five picks, 23 pass breakups and was an electric return man.
