Panthers sign DT Kawann Short to 5-year extension

18 April 2017

Kawann Short gets paid in Carolina.

The Panthers announced Monday that the team signed Short, who is now under contract with the Panthers through the 2021 season. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, that deal is worth $80 million in total.

The Panthers placed the franchise tag on Short in February. Rockets beat up Thunder in all facetsDavis tips his hat to Thomas for playingOn this date: Bonds belts 500th homerRebounding and tempo the keys to Bull.

That foundation paved the way for a breakout 2015 season; Short recorded a career-high 11 sacks to earn an invitation to the Pro Bowl and Second Team All-Pro honors for the NFC Champion Panthers. The contract averages $16 million per season, which puts Short in the neighborhood of Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, and just behind the gargantuan salaries of Ndamukong Suh and Fletcher Cox.

No "Josh Norman" situation to see here. That ranks him third among all defensive tackles in the NFL.

"KK has been very important to what we've been able to accomplish on defence", Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman said. "I'm absolutely thrilled that we were able to get this deal done".

"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.

He has also registered nine passes defensed, six forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries over his four seasons. Between a happy Kawann Short, Star Lotulelei on his 5th year option, and Vernon Butler on his second year in the league, the Panthers rotation looks to be stacked this year and for the future.
