Panthers claim OG Michael Jordan, release WR David Moore
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Carolina Panthers have parted ways with yet another unrestricted free agent they signed earlier this offseason.
The Panthers released former Seattle Seahawks wide receiver David Moore on Wednesday and claimed guard Michael Jordan from the Cincinnati Bengals off waivers.
Moore signed a two-year contract with Carolina in March that included a $1.25 million signing bonus, which will count as dead money under the salary cap.
Last week the Panthers traded linebacker Denzel Perryman and a seventh-round draft pick to the Las Vegas Raiders for a sixth-round draft pick just months after giving Perryman a two-year deal that included nearly $3 million in guaranteed money.
Moore caught 78 passes for 1,163 yards and 13 touchdowns with the Seahawks, but was beat out by rookie Terrace Marshall Jr. for the No. 3 receiver spot. Carolina also has stating wide receivers Robby Anderson and D.J. Moore and backups Shi Smith and Brandon Zylstra on the 53-man roster.
The 6-foot-6, 325-pound Jordan has played in 27 games with 19 starts for the Bengals the past two seasons.
