not much to be honest, not worth trading/cutting in my opinion

3rd or 4th
Which is what we would have gotten as a comp had we just not resigned him in 2010

Now that I think about it, I would trade him for a Wendy's Baconator.

I would call the Lions tbh, or again the Packers, both lack a dynamic runner.

Yet as it ahs been said, who trades for a older fat contract running back.

Put him in the backfield in a pro style set and watch him give you at least 5 ypc a game... That's what we can get for Williams

I honestly think a 4th is the best we could do. He has 6 years experience, but because of the way he's been used throughout his tenure in Carolina, he doesn't have much tread on the tires (he was only really a workhorse back in '08). But that contract is going to turn some people off.

The Packers would probably be an unstoppable offense with him though.

No one, in the end we will cut him or he will run his contract. If I was a gm in the NFL why would I trade for RB who is clearly on the way out the door? That's assuming your team even wants the cap number he holds. At this point in the season if I'm a GM looking for an RB as a stop gap to fill the hole this season why go after one of the highest paid RB's in the league? It's not like a team is going to build around DWill, hes 29 going on 30. Clearly you would go after the young fresh legs that you can get for like 575k or whatever the league minimum currently is. I love Dwill, fug i even have his jersey but like lets be serious, there's a salary cap in the NFL and these Madden trades don't happen. If by some miracle we get something for him it will be way less than invested; probably a blocking sled and some pylons.

I think we could get more for Beason than Williams.

Running backs are easy to get. I mean look at Alfred Morris, Andre Brown. I mean they are easier to find than good MLB. I'd settle for a 3rd round pick for Beason.

Again, the problem isn't what we could get for him, or Beason for that matter. Any team making a trade assumes his salary or a renegotiated salary. That isn't the hangup. The hangup is we may not be in a position to absorb the accelerated bonus that hits our books.

So say we trade DWill this year before the deadline. The new team takes his salary that averages $5.7 million a year over the next 3 years. This does not relieve us of our responsibility for the uncharged portion of the contract's original signing bonus ($9.6 million). That is what we're stuck with, and we'd have to take the whole hit this year.

It is better to wait till March when we can spread it out over 2 years. I do think both DWill and Beason should probably be cut or traded at that point. This team has to start getting out from under some of these ridiculous contracts, and we should do it as soon as possible.

Whether it be before this years trade deadline, or during the offseason, Williams will probably be traded. The question is what is he worth at this point in his career?

Denver or San Diego seem like no brainers as far as trade partners go.


Absolutely nothing. Nobody will want any part of that contract.

What could the Panthers get in return for getting rid of Deangelo Williams? Lots of cap space, a roster spot. The upside is huge.
