Panthers waived WRs Brenton Bersin and Mike Brown.

Bersin caught 13 passes over 15 games for the Panthers last season, but the arrival of Kevin Norwood in a trade earlier this week likely sealed his fate. Brown had 32 catches for the Jaguars in 2013, but spent part of 2014 on the practice squad before being released.

Panthers re-signed WR Brenton Bersin to a one-year contract.

Bersin was an exclusive rights free agent. A 2012 UDFA, he posted a 13-151-1 line while looking shaky as a return man last year. Bersin will compete for a roster spot in camp.

Brenton Bersin caught one pass for 11 yards in Saturday's Divisional Round loss at Seattle.

A 2012 UDFA out of tiny Wofford, Bersin beat out more noted receivers for a roster spot in camp. The former practice squadder ended up appearing in 15 regular season games, going 13-151-1 as a receiver while pitching in as a (shaky) return man. Bersin also has salon quality hair. The bad news is he's slow (4.60 speed), the NFL stage appears too big for him and he will have to fight for a roster spot again in 2015.

With Kelvin Benjamin nursing a bruised left knee, third-year UDFA Brenton Bersin is running with the Panthers' first-team offense.

Bersin and Jerricho Cotchery have been the outside receivers, with Jason Avant in the slot. Bersin appears to have leapfrogged Marvin McNutt, Tavarres King, and Tiquan Underwood on the depth chart. A Wofford alum, 24-year-old Bersin stands 6-foot-3, 210 with modest 4.60 speed and a 35-inch vertical. Put simply, the Panthers need their top receivers to stay healthy this season.
