The Carolina Panthers waived cornerback Troy Pride Jr. on Monday morning after failing a physical.
Pride was the Panthers' fourth round selection in the 2020 NFL Draft out of Notre Dame. As a rookie in 2020, Pride played in 14 games (8 starts) and tallied 42 tackles, two pass breakups, and one tackle for loss.
Pride went down in a preseason game versus the Colts with a torn ACL and missed the entire 2022 season. With the additions of Jaycee Horn, CJ Henderson, Keith Taylor, and Kalon Barnes it became clear that Pride would have a minimal role on the defense, if any.
In other news, the Panthers did sign two players that tried out for the team over the weekend - offensive tackle Wyatt Miller and tight end Jared Scott. Miller has spent time with the Jets, Bengals, Cowboys, Seahawks, Chiefs, and 49ers. Meanwhile, Scott is a 23-year-old undrafted rookie out of Idaho State.
