CHARLOTTE, N.C. —Former Wofford wide receiver Brenton Bersin was cut by the Carolina Panthers Saturday morning as the team continues to trim their roster down to the league required 53 players.
Bersin spent the last two seasons with the Panthers. In 2013, the Charlotte native was on the Panthers practice squad. A year later, he made the 53-man roster and appeared in 15 games for Carolina.
The Panthers are trying to make room for more productive players at wide receiver after season-ending knee injuries to Kelvin Benjamin and Stephen Hill. Bersin only had 13 receptions for 150 yards in the 2014 season.
The Carolina Panthers also parted ways Damiere Byrd and Mike Brown, leaving them with five wide receivers on the roster.
Bersin, who graduated from the same school as Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, caught 13 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown last season.
The Panthers also cut running back Jordan Todman, tight ends Marcus Lucas and Scott Simonson, offensive linemen David Foucault, Martin Wallace, Ricky Henry and Jordan McCray, defensive tackles Terry Redden and Chas Alecxih, defensive end Rakim Cox, linebackers Jason Trusnik, Adarius Glanton and Brian Blechen, cornerbacks T.J. Heath, Carrington Byndom and Lou Young and safety Marcus Ball.
Center Brian Folkerts was waived-injured, and defensive end Arthur Miley was played on injured reserve.
Carolina kept two undrafted rookies – running back Brandon Wegher and safety Dean Marlowe.
