Date:

Panthers waived/released WR Stephen Hill, LB Jared Barber, WR Avius Capers, TE Braxton Deave, G Reese Dismukes, DT Ray Drew, OT David Foucault, DE Tom Lally, C Matt Masifilo, WR Miles Shuler and OT Willie Smith.

That brings the roster to 79, meaning the Panthers will have to make four more cuts before Tuesday's 4 PM ET deadline. Hill failed to stand out this preseason, hauling in just two of four targets for 18 yards in three appearances. The former second-round pick will hope to latch on elsewhere, though teams could be hesitant to sign him given his off-field struggles and history of knee injuries.
Aug 28 - 1:18 PM

Panthers WR Stephen Hill is still struggling with the right knee in which he tore three ligaments last season.

There are two news bits here. The first is that Hill still isn't recovered from the knee injury he suffered early in training camp last year. The second is that Hill tore three ligaments -- not just his ACL -- in addition to his hamstring. Hill has reportedly been spotted by reporters having "tweaked" the balky knee on two separate occasions, missing reps, and icing the knee afterward.
Aug 3 - 8:24 PM

Panthers WRs coach Ricky Proehl said Stephen Hill "would have pushed for a starting job" before tearing his ACL in training camp last year.

Proehl said Hill was so impressive at spring workouts and early in camp that he was "ready to make me famous as a coach." "Unbelievable," Proehl said. "That’s how well he was performing in camp last year." Cam Newton also mentioned how Hill's ACL tear was a "big deal" for the team following the season. Although the mere mention of his name elicits eyerolls in the fantasy community, size-speed freak Hill is a player to keep in mind for the summer.

Stephen Hill (ACL surgery) is limited at OTAs.

The Panthers re-signed Hill to a minimum salary ($600,000) earlier this offseason. He should be ready for training camp, but there’s a lot working against him. Hill is competing for one of Carolina's final receiver spots.
May 28 - 5:36 PM

Panthers re-signed WR Stephen Hill to a one-year contract.

Hill was scheduled to be a restricted free agent. The two sides probably agreed for Hill to be non-tendered and re-signed at the minimum since he's coming off a torn ACL. Hill will be back to compete for a job in camp.
Mar 7 - 5:04 PM

At his Wednesday pre-NFC Championship Game presser, Cam Newton said losing WR Stephen Hill (ACL) in training camp was a "big deal."

It's a surprising disclosure of Cam's feelings on a player who entered the NFL with big-time tools, but fizzled out with the Jets before tearing his ACL in Panthers camp last summer. And it's perhaps noteworthy for deep Dynasty leaguers. Hill is still only 24 years old, turning 25 in April. A restricted free agent, the Panthers can retain Hill at the cheapest possible RFA tender.
Jan 20 - 10:04 PM

NFL suspended Panthers WR Stephen Hill one game for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Hill is currently on Carolina's injured reserve list. They may be stashing Hill as a prospect for 2016, but transgressions like Hill's suspension are ominous for a player who's so badly underachieved when given opportunities.

Panthers waived/injured WR Stephen Hill.

Hill injured his right knee at Saturday's practice and has since been diagnosed with a torn ACL. Paul Browning will take Hill's spot on the active roster. The 24-year-old has never logged more than 24 catches in a season and wouldn't have been much of a factor even if he had stayed healthy.
Sun, Aug 2, 2015 11:49:00 AM

According to the Charlotte Observer, Panthers WR Stephen Hill is believed to have torn his right ACL in Saturday's training camp practice.

The Panthers signed new WR Paul Browning on Sunday morning, indicating a need for depth at wide receiver and also requiring the team to clear a roster spot. Hill figures to be waived/injured soon. The 43rd pick in the 2012 draft, Hill has been an injury-plagued bust but was having a nice offseason in Carolina.
Sun, Aug 2, 2015 10:27:00 AM

Panthers WR Stephen Hill will have an MRI on his right knee Sunday.

The Charlotte Observer reports the early prognosis is "not encouraging" for the former second-round pick. A consistently star-crossed player since entering the league in 2012, Hill may have suffered a season-ending injury. Hill entered camp competing for the Panthers' fifth or sixth wide receiver job.
Sat, Aug 1, 2015 10:18:00 PM

Stephen Hill was carted off with a right knee injury at Panthers camp.

The early indications are it's a serious injury. Hill reportedly had a strong offseason after spending last year on the practice squad. Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess, Corey Brown, Ted Ginn and Jerricho Cotchery are Carolina's top five receivers.
Sat, Aug 1, 2015 05:31:00 PM

WSOCTV Charlotte reports Panthers WR Stephen Hill was cited for a drug paraphernalia charge after a routine traffic stop.

The drug paraphernalia charge isn't extreme by any means, but Hill is a guy who can't afford any off-field problems after he's been an extreme disappointment on it. The former second-round pick of the Jets had reportedly been a revelation in Panthers spring practices. Hill doesn't have a history of trouble with the law.
Wed, Jul 29, 2015 10:52:00 AM

Stephen Hill is expected to compete with Brenton Bersin and Jarrett Boykin for the Panthers' sixth and final wideout spot.

Hill is by far the most talented member of the trio and was singled out by coach Ron Rivera for showing well at OTAs. The former No. 43 overall pick of the Jets is still just 24 years old. The Panthers' top-five wideouts Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess, Corey (formerly Philly) Brown, Ted Ginn and Jerricho Cotchery.

Coach Ron Rivera named WR Stephen Hill the standout player of Panthers OTAs.

Rivera has spent a good part of the offseason talking up Hill. Shining at pad-less practices in shorts and t-shirts is nothing new for former second-rounder Hill. He's bigger, faster, and stronger than most of the players lining up opposite him. The hard parts for Hill thus far during his career have been durability and translating his talent to the field in actual games.
