Bottom line, the only way he will not be a panther next year is if we don't want him to be.

why would anyone trade for Williams if he proves to not be worth that contract. $18mil over 3 seasons none of it guaranteed isn't horrible, but he likely won't play out that contract here in its entirety.
I could see them wanting to trade D Will after this year.. .He will prove not to be worth that contract and Stewart will get less carries but look more effective.

It's nothing but fantasies, and then they bitch out Hurney when it doesn't happen.

Don't see that happening. But if it does then I'm ok with that. While I live Dwill and all. Stewart is younger and more valuable at this point. So long as he stay healthy. That is the only risk we are taking when and if we give him a long term contract and Dwill gets traded or release next year.
The $8million we are carrying over in Cap Space is so we can resign him and cut DWill and still be ok

"no reason I would want to leave as of now" = "i want more money than williams"?????
it was a line in the last paragraph, you think a highly productive back will not jump on a similar offer or better than DWill got with a different team? Especially if he doesn't get what he wants...
So Stew just says "no reason I would want to leave as of now", I just stating my own opinion from what I read. And that line to me says Stew is ready to leave and if he gets lowballed by our front office.
you stated it as if he actually said it, which he didn't. you spun the comment into something it didn't say (except in your mind) and made some drama where there was none (at least not yet.
how about we cross that bridge when we come to it?
just because the Saints* nice guy QB turned into a self-centered putz doesn't mean that our nice guy RB will.
until stewart comes out and actually...with real words, not stuff between the lines...that he's going to demand more money than williams, he hasn't said it.

Not to mention that in 2014 season. The TV deal for all the teams will kick in and give teams alot more money to work with. Panthers need to go ahead work out something with Stewart for 5 years. Redo Dwill contract and back load it. Then when the TV deal kicks in. Everyone will be Super happy. Plain and simple.
DWill has no reason to rework his deal.... He is one yr into a deal he spent his career working for.
You want an aging RB to backload his deal? Sounds good unless you are DeAngelo.

After this season, none of the three years and $18 million remaining on Williams' is guaranteed. With Williams turning 30 next April, the Panthers could release the older back and go with Stewart, who doesn't turn 26 until next March.
Maaaaaaaaaybe Hurney knew what he was doing afterall?
I think releasing DWill is a little excessive. Restructure would be more the norm.
We need to sticky this so people can get off the DWill is too expensive train.
