Panthers waive Burton; open roster spot for Tyler

Oct 20, 2009 - 10:53 PM CHARLOTTE, N.C.(AP) -- The Carolina Panthers have waived defensive tackle Antwon Burton, creating a roster spot for newly acquired defensive tackle Tank Tyler.

The Panthers sent their 2010 fifth-round pick to Kansas City late Monday for Tyler, who is expected to split time with Hollis Thomas at nose tackle.

Burton was let go Tuesday a month after Carolina signed him to create depth. He played sparingly with Carolina.

The Panthers also signed undrafted rookie defensive tackle Rashaad Duncan to the practice squad and released Terrance Taylor, who was signed last week. Duncan was cut by Tampa Bay last month and the Buccaneers cut him from their practice squad last week.
