Monday afternoon marked a first for Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule, as he and the team parted ways with one of his draft picks. And that pick is Troy Pride Jr.

The 24-year-old cornerback was officially waived with an injury designation today, just two years after being selected. Pride Jr. had missed the entirety of the 2021 campaign after tearing his ACL in the preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts.

A University of Notre Dame product, Pride Jr. was taken in the fourth round of the 2020 draft. In his lone season with the Panthers, he recorded 42 tackles and two passes defensed over 14 games.

Along with the release, came news of two additions to the roster. One, as reported by Pro Football Network’s Aaron Wilson on Sunday, is tight end Jared Scott—who most recently played at Idaho State University.

The second is offensive tackle Wyatt Miller. Miller entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2019 and has picked up practice-squad stops with the New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs.
