NFL Cuts 2011: Carolina Panthers Cut Everette Brown

Even though Saturday was the day for teams to reach the 53-man roster limit, that doesn't necessarily mean that teams have reached their final roster for their season-opening games next weekend. With plenty of players released or put on waivers, team's will still make more adjustments over the week.

The Carolina Panthers waived defensive end Everette Brown on Sunday afternoon, according to Adam Caplan. Brown was a second-round draft pick of the Panthers' in 2009, back when current Denver Broncos head coach John Fox held the reins over there. Fox has had interest in bringing his former Carolina players to Denver, and it would be no surprise if he wanted to bring in Brown. The Broncos have waiver priority in this matter since they are the No. 2 team behind No. 1 Carolina.

Even with Elvis Dumervil and Robert Ayers playing the end positions, the Broncos could use as much talent as they can get (Jason Hunter and Derrick Harvey are the backups). Brown has six sacks in 28 career games.
