Panthers release center/guard Pat Elflein

The Carolina Panthers have released center/guard Pat Elflein in a move that will free up $4.3M in salary cap space. Elflein joined the Panthers as their starting center in 2021 and held that role until a hip injury ended his season in Week 6 of last year. Bradley Bozeman ran away with the job and signed a new contract with the Panthers just yesterday.

A day after locking up C Bradley Bozeman with a three-year contract, the Panthers release Pat Elflein. The move saves $4.3M against the salary cap.
