When Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams get together, the tailbacks seldom discuss football.

So Stewart has not pressed his Panthers' running mate about his pending free agency.

But Stewart made his views clear Monday when asked whether he wants Williams to remain in Charlotte.

"Oh, yeah," Stewart said. "So once they get this deal done I'm pretty sure the organization would like to keep the duo going. I mean, if it's not broke, why fix it?"

Stewart was part of an NFL panel Monday at Bobcats President Fred Whitfield's Achievements Unlimited basketball school. He joined Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, New York Giants receiver and Charlotte native Hakeem Nicks and Fox Sports' NFL analyst Solomon Wilcots at Ardrey Kell High for a discussion on their educational and athletic experiences and most inspiring coaches and teachers.

Stewart said he's glad to hear reports that labor talks have progressed and a collective-bargaining agreement could be in place by the end of the week.

"We've been working out, working out, working out. It's time to put it to use," Stewart said. "It is that time of year where training camp starts. So I'm pretty excited to see if things are going to add up the way they're supposed to."

Stewart spent the offseason working out in Miami, as well as in Charlotte and in his hometown in Washington. He attended the Panthers players offseason training activities, where he got his first look at the offense of coordinator Rob Chudzinski.

"We were able to get into the playbooks a little bit and mesh with some of the guys - just get some type of chemistry built with the new guys that are on the team," Stewart said. "It was pretty productive."

If Stewart and Williams want to stay for slightly less, I think you let Goodson play up a bit for this season and then trade him before next years draft for as much as possible.

It would be pretty hard to keep all 4 of them. Smart move to bring up the value of a player and then trade them for a draft pick. It might be pretty hard to trade a RB with how short a RB shelf life is.

Sutton hasn't proven anything and wouldn't get a lot in trade. Goodson has proven he was able to rack up yards in garbage games. I like his potential but I think he's brittle. Like more brittle than Stewart.

Williams is the only sure fire back this team has in regards to staying healthy and contributing historically. Letting him go would mean trusting in three backs that haven't proven they can stay healthy or contribute long term.

I think the injury history of Stewart and recently of D-Will makes the decision simple, you keep Goodson too. Have to.

Teams were calling the panthers trying to trade for sutton last year. But sut plays some fb, returns some kicks, and pass protects well. He is actually the most versatile back the panthers have.

Stewart has never missed a regular season game due to injury. Williams has finished two straight years on IR.

Please rectify these two facts with your opinion listed above.

never missing a game is a bit misleading for Stewart. He's been on a knife edge nearly his entire career. During his phenomenal streak during 09 he almost caused serious damage to his Achilles. Also he did miss those 2 games this year with his concussion but that's no biggie.

People say he played poorly in the beginning of the season because of his injury so what's the point of him being on the field if he's going to be so ineffective?

I think they fit well with each other as it seems they both are not as durable as people want. I really hope Stewart doesn't have something pop up this year, apparently he is FINALLY healthy which is an encouraging thought.

Do whatever it takes to keep this pair, Williams and Stewart. If this Cam dude is all thay say, we will have the dream offense.

I think people tend to forget how reliant our offense was on our running backs in the John Fox system. Not to mention, how much of a pounding our running backs would take, running into 8 men in the box on 60% of the downs.

I think if we are able to get our passing game to at least be a threat, our runningbacks will see less injuries.

Again, I don't believe our RB's were injury prone. I believe they were thrust into a system that injures runningbacks. I mean honestly, the idea that a person just naturally gets injured more than other people is a little strange to me, yet it has become a common phrase in the NFL. Could it be possible that players are not injury prone, but play in injury prone systems???
