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

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

However, as contract site Spotrac points out, Short's first two years are better than nearly any defensive player in football, save for Von Miller and Olivier Vernon.

Standout defensive tackle Kawann Short will not play under a franchise tag in 2017 after agreeing a five-year $80m deal with the Carolina Panthers.

In time, FAS imposed additional fines against Google, amounting to almost 1 million rubles in total. Russian regulators first ruled Google's practices a violation of antitrust rules in fall of 2015.

Coach Ron Rivera also has said that the former Purdue star was "too important of a player" for Carolina not to re-sign.

Short, who has 22 career sacks since the Panthers made him a second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, was named a 2015 Second-team All-Pro and earned a Pro Bowl berth that same year.

At the halfway mark of the 60-minute session, Toro Rosso pairing Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz Jr held first and second place. During P2, Hamilton had to take evasive action to avoid hitting Nico Hulkenberg's slow-moving Renault on a corner.

Sure, the overall cap space is higher now so contracts get more expensive overall, but McCoy is under contract for five more seasons (including 2017), at about $13 million per year - that's an absurdly low number compared to the top of the defensive tackle market. Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman was under the spotlight this offseason after rescinding the franchise tag to cornerback Josh Norman a year ago.

"I knew it wasn't going to turn it out like (Norman's situation) because I knew I was either going to sign the (franchise) tender or get an extension", Short said Monday on a teleconference. The franchise's decision to rescind the tag on Norman past year, letting him walk to the Redskins on a new free agency deal, was a weird thing. Short notched just six sacks last fall, but remained a key presence on the team's defensive line. Off the field, KK is a top-notch young man and great representative of our team.

Burger King's new ad is an interesting and very modern commercial, even if it only briefly worked as intended. Arguably one of the Google Assistant's best features is the ability to respond hands-free.

Short is the seventh player in Panthers history to receive the franchise tag, joining punter Todd Sauerbrun (2003), tackle Jordan Gross (2008), defensive end Julius Peppers (2009), center Ryan Kalil (2011), defensive end Greg Hardy (2014) and Norman past year. "He's everything we're looking for in a Panther".
