The Carolina Panthers have released offensive tackle Matt Kalil and re-signed offensive tackle Daryl Williams to a one-year, $7 million contract.

Kalil missed last season with a knee injury. The post-June 1 designation saves the team $7.25 million in salary cap space.

Kalil, who played his first five seasons with Minnesota, started every game for Carolina in 2017.

Williams, a second-team All-Pro in 2017, played only one game in 2018 due to a knee injury. He was a fourth-round pick by the Panthers in 2015. He has played in 40 games, including 29 starts.
