Panthers sign Pro Bowl DT Kawann Short to 5-year extension

Panthers sign Pro Bowl DT Kawann Short to 5-year extension

The Carolina Panthers have signed franchise player Kawann Short to a five-year, $80 million deal and will avoid the possibility of a holdout into both OTAs and training camp.

The agreement comes nearly a year to the day after the Panthers rescinded the franchise tag they had placed on star cornerback Josh Norman, making him a free agent.

Short, who turned 28 in February, has collected 17 sacks over the past two seasons.

Loyalty paid off for the DT.

Short is now signed through the 2021 season. Back in 2015-2016, which still stands as his best single-season effort, he also tallied 55 total tackles alongside his 11 sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and four pass defenses.

Firms object to drug use in Arkansas executions
While Attorney General Leslie Rutledge will read over the motion, her office said she plans for the executions to continue. In a statement on its website, Pfizer said a distributor had sold the drug to Arkansas without the company's knowledge.

The Carolina Panthers made sure Kawann Short's contract situation wasn't going to end the same away Josh Norman's did a year ago.

Panthers General Manager Dave Gettleman said he considered the 6-3, 315-pound Short to be the best pass-rushing D-tackle in the 2013 draft when they picked him in the second round out of Purdue, and he hasn't disappointed.

Kawann Short, who emerged as an All-Pro defensive lineman in four seasons with the Panthers, will continue his National Football League career in Charlotte.

"The mismatches he creates for us on defense force opponents to be aware of him at all times and give us an edge along the defensive line", Rivera said. Off the field, KK is a top-notch young man and great representative of our team.

The deal contains $35 million in guaranteed money at signing, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "He's everything we're looking for in a Panther".
