We hear the Panthers feel confident that Armanti Edwards made progress at wide receiver this offseason.

As he heads into his third season, how much progress will he need to make to keep a spot on the Panthers’ roster in 2012?

Some team observers assumed Edwards was on the way out of Carolina when the team drafted Joe Adams — who is expected to handle the slot receiver/return-specialist role Edwards has struggled to fill for the past two seasons — in April.

Edwards, a converted college quarterback, has not seen much time at receiver — he does not have a catch in 19 NFL games — and he averaged only 5.5 yards on 32 punt returns last season. He is signed through the 2013 season at a relatively low price (he’s reportedly due base salaries of $490,000 in ’12 and $575,000 in ’13), but he appears very expendable and is facing an uphill battle to break through.
