The Carolina Panthers have discussed adding free agent wide receiver Greg Little but are not planning to sign him at this point, two team sources said Saturday. Little, the Durham native and former North Carolina standout, was released by the Cleveland Browns on Friday after three seasons marked by dropped passes and a series of traffic violations. The Panthers turned over their entire receiving corps during the offseason, cutting Steve Smith and losing three other wideouts in free agency. But they’ve signed veteran receivers Jerricho Cotchery, Tiquan Underwood and Jason Avant, and drafted ex-Florida State wideout Kelvin Benjamin in the first round. The Panthers also want to evaluate young receivers Marvin McNutt and Tavarres King. Little, 6-foot-2 and 215 pounds, was drafted in the second round by Cleveland in 2011 after he was suspended for the entire 2010 season at North Carolina for accepting impermissible benefits from an agent.
