Two players waived yesterday will have a chance to return to the Panthers in 2014.

Joe Adams and Frank Kearse have cleared waivers and will be placed on injured reserve -- according to Joe Person.

It's a stroke of luck the Panthers could use as they now have the opportunity to lean on Ted Ginn in 2013 while retaining the rights to Adams should they decide to make him their returned in 2014. Kearse will have a chance too but was an almost-assured cut after the team elected to draft Star Lotulelei and Kawann short while also re-signing Dwan Edwards.
