DeAngelo Williams won't complain about his contract

99 posts in this topic

"My whole thing is I signed a five-year contract here and if the owner doesn't want to re-sign me or do a new deal, that's all him," Williams said, per Steve Reed of CarolinaGrowl.com. "I'm not going to get upset or anything like that because I knew when I signed my five-year deal that I was committed here for five years, so why put up a fuss?"

-----

"I'm a competitor and I love the game of football," Williams said. "I will let all of that other stuff take care of itself."

-----

"There are ways around it," Williams said. "It's not a hindrance anymore. There are a lot of young guys that are getting signed, [including San Francisco 49ers linebacker] Patrick Willis that are signing big-time deals. So there are ways around the 30 percent rule. But like I said I signed a five-year commitment and I can't be upset and I can't be aggravated about it because I love this great game of football. The financial part and all of that stuff that has to do with this game outside of football that will take care of itself."

He is saying a lot in those statements.

I hope JR is prepared for the backlash his "Example Making" might bring him.

Not that I am 100% convinced he is commited to winning anymore.

Sounds to me like he's subtly hinting that he wants a new contract, but isn't going to hold out for one. He is a class act, but everyone has a breaking point. DWill could get a top 5(running back) contract with just about any team in the NFL besides a select few. Don't piss off your best players by making them wait JR.

Please, pay the man! I don't think his window is closing since his carry load has been light most of his career. He could play well til his mid 30's..He is worth giving a good contract in my eyes; would rather have a Williams then a big headed guy like Chris Johnson.

He's definitely saying something under all that. He wants a new contract.

    • There's merit is there is discrepancy between words and action.  For instance, Saudi Arabia not being held accountable as they are saying all the right things but doing the opposite of following through.
    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
