The Carolina Panthers have released defensive tackle Kawann Short, saving the team $14.5 million in cap space for 2021.

The move comes to no surprise, especially since Short missed most of the past two seasons with lingering shoulder injuries.

Short, now 32-years-old, is a two-time Pro Bowler and made the 2013 NFL All-Rookie Team.

He’s spent his entire playing career with Carolina, but he’s played in just five total games the last two seasons.

There should be a list of teams that could use Short’s services, especially with his experience and knowledge to teach younger players in the locker room about the position.

The number 44 overall pick in 2013 out of Purdue has had a successful career so far, and it’s earned him a total of $69,820,318 in just eight seasons.
