Panthers Cut Bené Benwikere

Not even a week after giving up 300 passing yards to Julio Jones and the Atlanta Falcons, the Carolina Panthers made some drastic adjustments to their secondary, releasing three-year veteran Bené Benwikere.

The Panthers let their top corner, Josh Norman, walk in the offseason after failing to agree on a long-term contract extension leaving Benwikere as Carolina’s top corner.  Benwikere was on the field for over 80% of Carolina’s defensive snaps through four games. Injuries to the Carolina secondary and the release of Benwikere leave the Panthers dangerously thin at the corner position.
