Panthers' Kawann Short: Will likely receive franchise tag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said the team will "probably have to tag" Short, David Newton of ESPN reports.

Short's numbers dropped in 2016 from his breakout 2015 campaign, but he still recorded 55 tackles and 6.0 sacks as a defensive tackle. Carolina will likely try to strike a long term deal with the pro-bowl lineman, but in the event they aren't able to reach an agreement the team isn't expected to let him hit free agency. Applying the franchise tag on Short would secure him for the 2017 season and allow the team to continue working with him on a longer term contract.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Sack number slips
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Short finished the 2016 season with 55 tackles (30 solo) and six sacks in 16 games.

Short was honored with a Pro Bowl selection after posting 11 sacks during his breakout 2015 campaign, which -- along with his pursuit of a long-term contract extension -- increased expectations of his production going into this season. Although Short matched his 2015 tackle total, his one sack through Carolina's first six games contributed toward a significant decline in that category. Nonetheless, after finishing the season strong, Short remains arguably the Panthers' biggest offseason priority. Whether that amounts to the 27-year-old securing a multi-year deal with the team or being franchise tagged remains to be seen, but Short's stated desire to stay in Carolina bodes well for the parties reaching an agreement.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Two sacks Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short registered three tackles (all solo) and two sacks Sunday against the Chargers.

Short's two quarterback takedowns Sunday now give him five sacks on the current campaign. While that pales in comparison to last season's 11, it was at least encouraging to see Short back at his best Sunday.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Sack against Falcons
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Short made five tackles (four solo) and one sack during Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

Short's sack marked his first of the season, which follows his breakout 11-sack 2015 campaign. Although he's gotten off to a slow start in that regard, Short's 15 tackles thus far exceed his rate of 55 stops in 16 games last term, salvaging some IDP value along the way.

Panthers' Kawann Short: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Short (shoulder) is active for Week 3's tilt against the Vikings.

Short was limited in practice all week with a shoulder injury but has been cleared to play in Sunday's game. He could see his reps monitored closely as the team looks to prevent any further injuries, in which case look for Vernon Butler to see some extra action.
