The Panthers signed second-rounder Kawann Short earlier today, and finished up the defensive tackle double-dip this afternoon.

According to a Twitter message from his agents, first-rounder Star Lotulelei has agreed to his deal with the Panthers.

His ability to play the run will be key for the Panthers defense this year, and should help a group of mobile linebackers to flow more freely to the ball.

While many teams sign picks from the later rounds and work their way up, the Panthers now have deals with the first two of their five.

    What was the deal? A lifetime free McDonald’s card?

    It’s fun to say Lotulelei.

    We have a chance to be the top defense in the NFC South. Looking forward to the season this beast in the middle.

    I hope he shades the LB’s to be able to do work and I really hope he shades our less than impressive name sheet that makes up our DB’s
