Panthers cut RB Lamar Smith

Leading rusher for last season RB Lamar Smith was cut.

Charlotte, NC - The Carolina Panthers have let go running back Lamar Smith. Smith led the Panthers with 737 yards rushing and seven touchdowns.

"Lamar did a very solid job for us last season," said Carolina Panthers Head Coach John Fox. "We are making a number of changes on offense and just felt like we were heading in a different direction next season at the running back position."

The Panthers would like to sign free-agent running back Stephen Davis who played with the Redskins last season.
