Carolina Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman has been able to re-sign his defensive end Mario Addison to a three year, $22.5 million dollar contract. Gettleman admitted that one of his top priorities was to re-sign Addison and defensive tackle free agent to be Dawann Short. Addison started his career in the National Football League as an undrafted free agent out of Troy University with the Chicago Bears before he was released during the 2011 football season when he was claimed off waivers by the Indianapolis Colts. Addison played five games for the Washington Redskins during the 2012 football season before he was released at the end of November. The Panthers signed Addison in early December 2012 and he has found a home with the National Football Conference South Division team. Addison was the leader of opposing quarterback sacks with 9.5 during the 2016 football season and since Gettleman did not want to see star defensive lineman hit the free agent trail early next month, he was able to retain the services of his defensive pass rusher for the next three years.

He earned his contract renewal since Gettleman is probably catching heat from Panthers fans for letting Josh Norman go to the Redskins last year.
