"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."

His window is closing. In 2 years he'll be considered ancient for RB position

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.

Absolutely, but I love the fact that he isn't trying to burn any bridges by pulling a Chris Johnson. Granted, Johnson has a little more leverage than Williams.

I don't follow contracts as much as I used to...how long are DeAngelo, Stewart and Clausen locked up?

Williams is entering his last year, Clausen hasn't signed, and I THINK Stewart's here for 3 more years.

Oh yeah, of course. I think he is handling it excellently, but I also think it's obvious he wants a new contract just judging by those statements alone.

a little more leverage?

williams has zilch for leverage, and he knows it....that's why he's being such a "class act" about the situation.
