In a surprise move, the Panthers released former starting guard Geoff Hangartner. He had played 6 of his 9 NFL seasons with the Panthers.
Teammate Jordan Gross was among those who was not expecting the news and you can hear his comment below.
Garry Williams is in his 4th season with the Panthers, and appears to be the starter for now as he is practicing with the first unit at training camp. The Panthers used their 4th round pick on guard Edmund Kugbila who will figure into the mix, although he has been battling a hamstring injury so far at camp.
