The biggest surprises were seeing McClover, Brown, Fonoti and Holt released. The biggest surprises as far as making the team were WR Dominique Thompson, DE Hilee Taylor, S Nate Salley, CB C.J. Wilson and G Mackenzy Bernadeau.
Thompson will almost certainly be released once Steve Smith returns from his two week suspension, or if there is a receiver available in free agency that the staff feels is a better talent.
It's curious that the Panthers kept only 4 running backs / full backs; Jonathan Stewart, DeAngelo Williams, Nick Goings and Brad Hoover.
