The Panthers recently made two new additions to the wide receiving core, as they signed a pair of small school wideouts who have successfully auditioned for a role on the squad.
Lamont Bryant was a two-time first-team All MEAC performer for Morgan State. At 6-5, 229 pounds, Bryant certainly possesses the physical tools of an NFL wide receiver. He played tight end in college but projects to be a wideout at the next level.
Michael Avila, a former San Jose St. Spartan, will likely be utilized as a special teams player. The 5-8, 168 pound speedster was a return specialist at the collegiate level and could see some time in that role moving forward.
In order to open up spots on the roster for these two players, the Cats waived wide receivers Wes Kemp and Chris Manno. As undrafted free agents, look for Avila and Bryant to battle adamantly to try to earn reps in practice and playing time on Sundays.
