The Carolina Panthers have released defensive tackle Kawann Short.

The two-time Pro Bowler has played in a combined five games over the past two seasons.

He was heading into the final year of a five-year, $80 million contract he signed in 2017 after having 24.5 sacks during a three-year span. He has since had only three sacks, all in 2018, when he started 14 games.
