Panthers release two players to get to 90-man roster limit
With rookie minicamp set to begin tomorrow, the Carolina Panthers needed to make two more subtractions to hit the 90-man limit on Thursday. And unfortunately for offensive tackle Aaron Monteiro and wideout Aaron Parker, they were the two names that were called.
Monteiro broke into the NFL out of Boston College, where he spent four years as a left tackle. The Brockton, Mass. native then signed on with the Miami Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2019.
The 6-foot-6, 315-pounder would latch on to a number of practice squads, including Miami’s and New England’s and, of course, most recently Carolina’s. He appeared in one game for the Panthers in 2021.
Parker, like his fellow Aaron, transitioned into the league as an undrafted free agent. The University of Rhode Island inked a deal with the Dallas Cowboys in 2020 and moved on to the Panthers in 2021. He also appeared in one game for the team this past season.
