CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)

The agent for first-round draft pick Star Lotulelei says his client has signed a four-year contract with the Carolina Panthers.

Financial terms were not released. The deal includes a team option for a fifth season.

Bruce Tollner says Lotulelei, the 14th overall pick in the NFL draft, is ''extremely excited to officially become a Panther.''

Tollner says Lotulelei signed the contract late Wednesday afternoon.

The Panthers have yet to announce the move.

The 6-foot-2, 311-pound Lotulelei was a two-year starter at Utah and had 20 of his 86 tackles behind the line of scrimmage. He had 6 1/2 sacks.

Earlier in the day, the Panthers announced they've signed second-round draft pick Kawann Short, a defensive tackle from Purdue.
