Unfortunately, I think that Stewart is the side that isnt coming to the table. Hurney can work the magic to keep him, and I am hoping that we will impress Stewart with a really good playoff run this year... But it is up to him if he wants to stay. Stewart is from the West Coast I have lived periodically on that side before, and it is a different culture. North Carolina just may not have grown on him? Maybe he just wants to be closer to home.
Something tells me that he would like to play for Denver, Seattle or SF. He is a damned good RB, and when it is time for him to get his money, he is likely to get a choice to where he goes.
There is hardly any other teams that would pay Stewart the way we would pay him. Saying he's not interested in staying doesn't make sense to me. People like money. I don't understand it either.
Yeah, contracts in the NFL aren't guaranteed so cutting players aren't that big of a deal.
Cutting Deangelo is a big deal. Cutting him now would kill us. Cutting him next season would still hurt.
I just don't understand how people can be so short sighted? What do you think is going to happen with Stewart??? He is going to have a good year next year, then magically were going to find the cap room to resign him? Is he going to play at the league minimum so to stay here??? Yes, we all love him as a player, but guys, seriously, why not get some value for him while we can and move on.
WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD TO BRING HIM BACK IN 2013. Not after the contract we gave Williams.
You may not like the idea of re-signing him, but, no, it's actually not impossible.
