Buffalo Bills: Making the case for and against signing Kawann Short
The Carolina Panthers last week released a number of players to clear cap space and with Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane running the show, it is a logical question to ask if some of these players could find their way to the Buffalo Bills.
One of those players that would make sense for the Buffalo Bills to be interested in is defensive tackle Kawann Short. He recently said in an interview that he has already heard from a few teams and with the connection he has to the people with this franchise, it wouldn’t be surprising if the Bills was one of those teams.
Short was a second round pick by the Carolina Panthers in the 2013 NFL Draft and became a key part of this defensive line next to former teammate, and current Bills player Star Lotulelei. While Lotulelei would be more of the run stuffer, Short became that penetrating tackle that could collapse the pocket from the inside.
He would go on to make two Pro Bowls, register 36.5 career sacks with the Panthers and had his best years with Sean McDermott as defensive coordinator when he had 110 total tackles and 18 sacks in 2015 and 2016.
Let’s make the case for and against the Buffalo Bills signing defensive tackle Kawann Short and my opinion of whether the Bills should do it.
