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.

Panthers add a DT

Posted by Chris Brown on October 20, 2009 – 9:48 am

The Carolina Panthers have been struggling in defending the run ever since Ma’ake Kemoeatu went down with a season-ending injury in training camp. They also lost one of his replacements (Louis Leonard) in Week 2. So the Panthers made a trade with the Chiefs to acquire DT Tank Tyler before the deadline.

Tyler, a former college teammate of John McCargo’s at N.C. State will add some beef to the middle of Carolina’s defensive run front this week against the Bills. The Panthers also recently signed veteran Hollis Thomas to shore up their defensive interior. Carolina gave up a fifth-round pick for Tyler.

The Panthers have already parted with two other draft picks for next season including their first-rounder, which they shipped to San Fran during the draft last April. They also parted with their sixth-round pick to get Louis Leonard from the Browns, who is not out for the year.
