  • Rashaan Gaulden: Let go by Carolina

    The Panthers waived Gaulden on Monday, Max Henson of the team's official site reports.

    Gaulden made two notable errors during Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Saints, and his tenure with the Panthers appears to have run dry as a result. The 2018 third-round pick's collision with D.J. Moore on a punt return resulted in a turnover, and he later invoked an unnecessary roughness penalty on a kick return. The 24-year-old will look to catch on elsewhere in the league.

    Gaulden is in the mix for the starting free safety job, Max Henson of Panthers.com reports.

    Gaulden was selected in the third round of the 2018 draft out of Tennessee, and after registering 17 tackles in his rookie campaign, he's put himself in a position to potentially open the 2019 season as the starting free safety alongside Eric Reid. "The one position is the free safety spot," stated head coach Ron Rivera. "We've got to see who is going to step up and take that lead." Even if Gaulden doesn't emerge as the starter, he could see time as a nickel or dime corner for the Panthers this year.
