Panthers waive Lirim Hajrullahu

Mike Florio and Chris Simms discuss the rookies from the 2022 NFL Draft class they believe will have the biggest impact from the get go.

The Panthers are down to one kicker on their 90-man offseason roster.

The team announced that they have placed Lirim Hajrullahu on waivers Wednesday. The move opens a spot for one of the 13 undrafted rookies the Panthers signed after the draft came to an end last weekend.

Hajrullahu was 4-of-5 on field goals and 3-of-3 on extra points in the final three weeks of the 2021 season. He also went 5-of-5 on extra points in one game for the Cowboys earlier in the year.

The Panthers turned to Hajrullahu because Zane Gonzalez went down with a quad injury during pregame warmups in Week 15. Gonzalez has recovered and is now in line to be the kicker this fall.
