DeAngelo Williams won't complain about his contract

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.

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.

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.

I was being facetious. We could easily let him walk if he became a problem, whereas Chris Johnson has Tennessee by the balls.

He said exactly what I did and the same thing every player knows. If they want to do a deal with the players, the 30% rule is not that hard to work around. All of the owners should realize that using that as a poor excuse for delaying contracts will have a backlash. If owners want players to be loyal to them, they need to do the same. If they don't care, then don't expect the players to care either. Locking up a guy like Williams on a 4 year deal wouldn't be that hard and would guarantee his loyalty and hard work for the next 4 years. That would put him at 31 which is effectively his career. By putting things off the FO is creating a problem which will make it that much harder to sign all of our young players whose contracts are expiring. Frankly I imagine that contracts could be written with large incentives next year based on their being a regualr season and figure in playing bonuses which would account for a possible lockout. That wouldn't necessarily be included in the base salary (so it wouldn't be part of the 30% rule. If someone like me can figure that out so can Hurney.

He's the best running back the Panthers have had by far, and holds several records and is the all-time leading rusher and the only one the Panthers have had that is averaging over 5 YPC.

The Panthers could live without him, but why would they want to?

Thank ye. Clausen's rookie deal would be for about 5, right?

poo I'd want a new contract if I were him. We've got him for dirt cheap right now.

Yea, he's outplayed his current contract. He deserves a new contract

Anyone have any idea what he might get?

i think they might be waiting to see if stewart emerges this year. he has more upside which could lead to a franchise tag and tade for DeWill at the end of this year or next for a high first round pick.

Well I have no idea, especially with the whole CBA issue. I do know that Henne signed for 4 years when he was drafted 2 years ago. With as giddy as the FO appears to be about Clausen, who knows?

he's arguably the best RB in franchise history. it's a coin toss between he and stewart.

put their respective freshman and sophomore seasons side by side, and it isn't even close.
