Charlotte, N.C. — The Carolina Panthers have claimed cornerback LaDarius Gunter from the Green Bay Packers, the team announced Wednesday afternoon.
Carolina waived rookie kicker Harrison Butker in a corresponding roster move. Butker was selected by Carolina with the 233rd overall pick in the 7th round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
Gunter appeared in 16 games with 15 starts last season with Green Bay. He tallied 58 tackles, two forced fumbles and recorded a team-high 15 pass deflections.
The former University of Miami cornerback signed with the Packers after going undrafted in the 2015 NFL Draft.
