The Carolina Panthers have agreed to terms with free agent defensive tackle Shy Tuttle on a three-year contract worth $19.5 million, ESPN and NFL Network reported Monday.

Tuttle gets $13 million guaranteed at signing, per the reports. The deal becomes official on Wednesday, the first day of the new league year.

Tuttle, 27, signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent out of Tennessee in 2019. He recorded 143 tackles, four sacks and 14 passes defensed in 63 games (33 starts) for the Saints.

He’ll likely play nose tackle for the Panthers, who are switching to a 3-4 defense in 2023.
