According to the Gaston Gazette, the Panthers have pulled out of their pursuit for Lee Evans.

Gazette reporter Steve Reed, initially reported that the Panthers were interested after losing deep threat WR David Gettis to a torn ACL yesterday, but he reported that the Bills are asking for a 3rd round pick, something the Panthers don’t have next year. He claims the Panthers’ interest wasn’t intense.

He also said the Panthers have more pressing positional needs like CB and that the TE is going to be a big part of their offense anyway with Greg Olsen and Jeremy Shockey in the fold.
