And yes, it is designated as a post June-1st cut.Per Ian Rapoport on Twitter, the Carolina Panthers upon finalizing the contract for Daryl Williams this afternoon have released offensive tackle Matt Kalil.The writing was pretty much on the wall since yesterday that this move was incoming Carolina Panthers Customized Jerseys

Having a healthy and reliable Olsen in the lineup would be a plus on both fronts regardless of what it means for 2020 and beyond.
