Otah Done in Carolina, Panthers Part Ways

The Carolina Panthers officially cut ties with often injured tackle Jeff Otah

Otah had been a first round pick of the Panthers back in 2008 (19th overall), but had fallen out of favor with the NFC South club.  Carolina had attempted to deal Otah to the New York Jets earlier this offseason, however when he failed to pass the teams physical exam the trade was voided.

The Panthers are still on the Salary Cap hook for just under $300,000 to Otah, however by waiving him they free up a valuable roster spot for someone who wants to play, as well as, nearly $800,000 in cap room.
