CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)

Carolina Panthers center Ryan Kalil has signed his one-year tender worth more than $10 million.

Team spokesman Charlie Dayton confirmed the move on Thursday, two days after the Panthers placed the non-exclusive franchise tag on Kalil. If the current rules exist in the new collective bargaining agreement, another team would've had to surrender two first-round picks to sign the two-time Pro Bowl selection.

The franchise tag has been a point of contention with the current labor deal expiring next week. But Kalil's decision to sign gives him $10 million guaranteed.

The move means running back DeAngelo Williams and defensive end Charles Johnson will likely become unrestricted free agents when a new labor deal is reached.
