Short missed the bulk of the past two seasons with injuries to each shoulder and was cut this offseason by Carolina.
Schefter adds he’s in discussions with a handful of teams to potentially sign with training camp just around the corner.
Short, 32, is a former second-round pick of the Panthers back in 2013. He played out the final year of his four-year, $4.630 million rookie contract before agreeing to a five-year, $80 million contract with the Panthers in 2017.
Short stood to make a base salary of $12,000,000 for the 2021 season, which was the final year of his contract, when the Panthers cut him.
In 2020, Short appeared in three games for the Panthers and recorded six tackles and no sacks.
