(Before It's News)

The Panthers placed the franchise tag on defensive tackle Kawann Short Monday afternoon, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports.

The tag is non-exclusive, meaning Short can talk with and potentially sign an offer sheet with another team, which the Panthers could match and keep him or not match and receive two first-round picks in return.

The projected value of the tag for a defensive tackle is $13.5 million.
