Wharton, 33 in May, is coming off an outstanding season that saw him start 12 games at left guard and be an asset as both a pass protector and run blocker. He's currently our No. 2 available free-agent guard, behind Geoff Schwartz and ahead of Willie Colon and Jon Asamoah. The Panthers would like Wharton back.
Panthers G/C Geoff Hangartner has retired from the NFL after eight seasons.
Hangartner, 32 next month, appeared in eight games, making two starts, for the Panthers last season after signing off the street in November. He played in 118 games total, starting 85 of them, in six seasons with Carolina and two with Buffalo. Hangartner was set to become a free agent at 4 PM ET.
