“ Considering what happened between Carolina and Josh Norman this offseason, it’s reasonable to wonder if that sort of contract would come from the Panthers. But given that the franchise has used three first- and second-round picks on defensive tackles since general manager Dave Gettleman was hired in 2013, the notion that Short, not Norman, would get a boatload of money seems to fall more in line with the GM’s belief system.”

I took that the complete opposite way: moving on from Norman makes sense when you are planning ahead for Short’s upcoming free agency; you’re prioritizing. HOWEVER, they have used a lot of early picks on DT, so maybe they have enough high-end talent behind him that they could justify letting him walk.
