Hours after their trade for Buffalo Bills defensive end Darryl Johnson, the Carolina Panther kept it moving with their latest roster departure.

According to Joseph Person of The Athletic, the team has let cornerback Jalen Julius know of their intentions to waive him. Julius signed with Carolina back in April.

The 5-foot-10, 190-pounder cracked into the league two years ago as an undrafted free agent with the Kansas City Chiefs out of the University of Mississippi. With the Rebels, he totaled 138 tackles and 1.5 sack over four seasons.

Although the Panthers have grown a bit thin at corner, mostly notably with the season-ending ACL injury to Troy Pride Jr. and the two-game suspension of A.J. Bouye, Julius was not expected to make the roster. He could, as Person also notes, be a candidate for the practice squad.
