The day we lose Williams I will die a little inside. The day we loose Smith I will die a lot inside. I fear for the future of our team.

I fear for your inside.

Thomas Davis said the FO told him they would resign him. It sounds like DWill hasn't heard anything. At least Davis has talked with them at least about coming back.

Davis was in a totally different situation than DeAngelo when the FO had that conversation with him.

I guess but it seems weird that they "assured" him he would be a Panther and haven't assured D-Will anything.

Maybe D-Will doesn't want to be assured of being a Panther but instead wants to be assured a ring and thinks he has to go elsewhere to get it before his days are done. GB or Indy would be some stops.

What does that have anything to do with them keeping him? Maybe he said "the hell with playing for this sorry ass team" and said he wasn't playing another snap this year so they put him on IR so it wouldn't look so bad to the media......

I don't see Deangelo saying that (if only because it's a contract year), and I don't see Carolina IR-ing him if they weren't interested in his 100% health next year. Regardless of all the conspiracies flying around about aiming to lose, hard to believe they'd shut down one of their only offensive weapons, especially with Stewart struggling as he has, if they were just going to let him walk.

Davis has had no "meaningful contract negotiations" either. That doesn't mean that they haven't assured Williams that he will be offered them.

PFT IS TRASH. It's the Perez Hilton of the NFL. Ignore it at all costs.

I would think he is ready to move on.

Mark my words, in my FIRST official post, D. Williams will remain a Panther next season! There's no way, with the shape this team is in, that they will let our best RB go. Yea, sure he doesn't have the YPC this year, but I chalk that up to the O line that we have this year due to injuries and dumb decisions. Athankya!

Besides having Fox and his staff coaching the team this season, the Panthers not signing their core players is the second biggest part of the whole CBA thing that pisses me off. Players like Williams and Kailil would have been signed and locked up by now like they have done for other playes in past recent years during the season. (ie Gamble)

I still think D'Will is going to be a panther next season and be resigned. If anything they will franchise tag him.

His agent Jimmy Sexton told Darin Gantt of the Charlotte Observer that there have been no meaningful contract negotiations between the two sides. That’s no surprise for anyone that has watched how the Panthers have conducted business of late


I certainly hope not. D Will is the best back on the roster, by far. And even tough he is hurt right now, he's the most dependable and rarely fumbles. Why get rid of him, it makes no sense.

If we somehow screw up re-signing D'lo, it would be beyond to stupidest move in our franchise's history. There's no way, no matter how stupid we think the FO is that we wouldn't re-sign him.

This organization will never rest on its laurels of stupid moves...it's wise to always expect something to out-do previous stupidity.

Serious question amidst all this - I understand the uncertainty around the future CBA and what that holds, but a player could be resigned today if both sides agreed, correct?

If this is true, does anyone feel there is potential risk by letting a superstar drift into the tantalizing world of free agency instead of locking up while still under contract? Regardless of the intentions today, nothing is set in stone on either side.

LOL at this board acting like RBs are hard to replace. You can tell who owns a #34 jersey around here

venting in progress...

I said before the deadline we should work out an extension or trade him. You do NOT want to let him hit FA and then have to outbid other teams. Also, if you had contract talks before the deadline you could gauge what he wanted money wise and still trade him if it was obvious he was going to be too expensive. Seriously, what the f**k has the FO been doing? This is one of your best players and your just gonna kinda wait and see what happens.

If we franchise him, then that's just another Peppers situation and who the f**k wants that. And hell the new CBA may remove the franchise tag completely, so that may not even be an option.

And the FO had multiple calls from teams wanting to trade for him and wouldn't even hear out offers but yet they're not working out a contract either? At least before the deadline you had options, now you're faced with the possibility of DWill walking and getting nothing and seriously, why the f**k would he want to resign here? Just cause he likes the pretty trees in Charlotte so much?

Between Peppers, trading away high future picks every year and now this mess, the FO is quickly destroying any faith I had in them.

venting now over...
