Carolina Panthers terminate OT Michael Oher

- The Carolina Panthers announced Thursday that they have terminated "vested veteran/failed physical offensive tackle" Michael Oher.

Oher's release comes just days after the Panthers fired general manager Dave Gettleman and the hiring of former GM Marty Hurey as interim. 

Following the Panthers' announcement, Oher tweeted. "The brain is a scary thing. You have to be careful with it."

Oher joined the Panthers in 2015 and started all 16 regular season games and three postseason games for a Panthers team that won an NFC Championship and made an appearance in Super Bowl 50.

In 2016, Oher started the first three games of the season before a concussion caused him to be inactive for the next seven games and placed on injured reserve.

The offensive lineman and subject of the movie "The Blind Side," was recently accused of assaulting an Uber driver while visiting Nashville, TN.

In eight NFL seasons split between Baltimore (2009-13), Tennessee (2014) and Carolina (2015-16), Oher has started all 110 regular season games he played. He was a member of the Baltimore’s Super Bowl XLVII championship team following the 2012 season.
