Short's new five-year, $80 million contract pays out a signing bonus of $20 million, per a source with knowledge of the deal.
The team had previously applied the non-exclusive franchise tag to Short in February. After two solid seasons to start his career, Short tied for the league lead among defensive tackles with 11 sacks in 2015, shattering the franchise record for sacks by a defensive tackle by four and earning his first Pro Bowl nomination.
Loyalty paid off for the DT.
A second round pick by the Panthers in 2013, Short has 22 sacks and six forced fumbles in his career.
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. That ranks him third among all defensive tackles in the NFL.
Incidentally, this contract makes the Bucs' re-signing Gerald McCoy to a six-year, $95 million extension toward the end of 2014 look genius.
