NFL teams have until 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to trim their rosters to 53 players. Around The NFL is following each team's moves. READ

King and Marvin McNutt were the only two holdovers from last year's receiving corps. McNutt was cut in last week's round of trims. King lasted just a week longer.

Much consternation came out of Charlotte this offseason as fans watched the Panthers cut Steve Smith and let Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn and Domenik Hixon all walk in free agency.

Despite the overhaul, the Panthers' receivers group actually shapes up better in 2014 thanks to rookie Kelvin Benjamin, who looks like the real deal thus far. Benjamin's playmaking ability works nicely with veteran possession receivers Jerricho Cotchery and Jason Avant.

Now that the pass-catching corps is completely refurbished, fans can turn their attention to the bigger concerns in Carolina: Cam Newton's health and the shaky offensive line.
