Just because DeAngelo is 29 & didn't put up 1,500yd & 15td in '11 doesn't mean he's overpaid or washed up. Nor does it mean he is no longer an elite RB. Several other RB's had much bigger numbers last year, but they also had a much heavier work load. DeAngelo's averages are as good as any RB in the league. Having Cam & Stewart prevents D Will from having to be a work horse back.
If you feel DeAngelo was over paid that is your opinion & perfectly fine. But if you try to argue DeAngelo is on the decline & no longer an elite RB you are out of your mind. He is still one of the most effective backs in the NFL.
IMO he was worth every penny. It shows loyalty to our players & D Will is a terrific representation of our team off the field. He is a great guy. On the field he is an elite RB. Everyone says backs are done at 30; the backs you are referencing have 2,000-3,000 carries at that point. DeAngelo hasn't even cracked 1,000. DeAngelo has the wear of a 26yo back & has plenty left in the tank. Hurney & Richardson know what they are doing.
DeAngelo Williams is a key piece to the most dynamic & explosive offense in the NFL. He is also a great teammate, a model representation of our team, & he loves the fans.

He's saying that Williams graded out very favorably last season despite being tagged as "overpaid" and "washed up" by a lot of people.
He's not saying Williams is actually overpaid and washed up.
Read. Then post.

Williams is a good RB. He isn't washed up yet
