Rivera previously had said Short, 28, was "too important of a player" for Carolina not to re-sign.

Short, who enters his fifth National Football League season in 2017, has 17 sacks in the past two seasons (2015-16), third-most among National Football League defensive tackles during that time. CBS Sports said Short will collect half of that total, a whopping $40 million, over the first two years of the deal. "I'm absolutely thrilled that we were able to get this deal done". Off the field, KK is a top-notch young man and great representative of our team. The Panthers got tremendous value out of Short over the past four years - his rookie contract paid him an average of $1.2 million per year.

A second round pick by the Panthers in 2013, Short has 22 sacks and six forced fumbles in his career. He's a great player, but also a quality young man who has the respect of his teammates in the locker room. Beating the July deadline by several months, the two sides have reportedly agreed to a five-year, $80 million contract. "He's everything we're looking for in a Panther".
