Panthers cut Olindo Mare

Now if he can sign with Atlanta and Tampa Bay he will have played for the entire NFC South!

A year after signing in Carolina, Olindo Mare is leaving.

The Panthers have released Mare today, a league source tells PFT.

Shortly after last year’s lockout ended, Mare signed a four-year, $12 million contract with the Panthers. But he had a mediocre season in Carolina in 2011, missing both of his field goal attempts of 50-plus yards.

The Panthers have also cut veteran punter Nick Harris in favor of rookie Brad Nortman, whom they selected in the sixth round of this year’s draft.

The decision to cut Mare leaves Justin Medlock as the only kicker on the Panthers’ roster. It’s not known yet whether the Panthers have settled on Medlock as their kicker for Week One, or whether they’ll consider bringing in another kicker. But their kicker won’t be Mare.

Whatever kicker the Saints dispose of (Kasay, in my opinion) will probably end up kicking for the Panthers before it is all said and done. Kasay's previous ties with the team make it possible for him to go back if he decides not to retire.

Been thinking that, since Hartlet should get the job. Kasay proved last year he can still get it done.
