Panthers choose Heinicke over Gilbert as No. 2 QB
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The Panthers decided to go with Taylor Heinicke as their backup quarterback behind starter Cam Newton. Carolina waived last year's third-string QB Garrett Gilbert as part of final cuts Saturday.
Carolina waived defensive end Deashon Hall, a fourth-round draft pick in 2017. He never played a down for the team.
