Carolina cut would-be nickel DJ Moore, a Chicago Bear and Vanderbilt product who more or less was duplicated by Captain Munnerlyn, was cut Monday.
Moore was only active in two games so far. He's found himself, on a team that had six CBs, often being the last of the six; a good nickel corner, Moore never found a home on the outside and therefore never played. Being hurt didn't help, either.
King, waived by the Broncos this week, was claimed off waivers by Carolina, necessitating the Moore cut. A 5th round pick this year, King (6', 189, Georgia) had a total of 17 TDs in his final two years at Georgia; in 2012 that included 22 yards per catch. King's 4.47 40 isn't incredible, but is realistically quick, and he gets off the line fast. He was said in draft documents to have good hands and routes as well.
King's the second WR picked up mid-season; Armanti Edwards was let go, and I stand behind Domenik Hixon's space not being safe.
