PFT: "Contender" has inquired about DeAngelo Williams

Then on Monday when asked about trading a player he deflected the question to someone else....

ive thought stew was the better between the two since we drafted him, and I think the panthers also think this too that's why we are fielding inquiries about Williams
I'd be devastated to lose DeAngelo... I'm being serious too. It'd be a tough pill to swallow knowing that he's being severely under utilized here. I will go into FULL depression mode of we deal him
He has a gear that J Stew can only dream about... Please Football Gods, if we do deal him, please allow us to get something of serious worth in return

Green Bay is never big on high priced RB's as their offense runs on the pass. A capable RB is all that is needed.
Pittsburgh is the same, they need a capable RB and have made no names into household names there. Not likely to risk their future on a quick fix.
Remember, for someone to make a trade for an expensive back, a couple things need to be in place.
First, the coach could be on the hot seat and needing to make something happen NOW. This takes GB and Pitt out of the equation even further.
Look for a team who has a coach that has been there for 3 or 4 seasons, their window possibly closing.
1. AZ is a prime candidate in my opinion. QB issues, no running game and a coach getting ready to get the boot, especially after their season turning from promising to crap.
2. NYJets is another possibility.
3. Denver is sort of an iffy one, but they have Willis McGahee. Not sure what his contract looks like for next season. Window with Peyton definitely closing.
4. San Diego is my last possibility.
It would also be smart for the Panthers to get a pick rather than a player. If the team has no direction, then who knows whether or not we will need a WR, DT or whatever in return. Also, if the team is a contender, then you are dillusional to think they will give up a starting WR, etc for a RB. That would be incredibly stupid and probaly move them quickly to non contender

Jackson's contract also runs out in 2013.....so as of now he makes a lot more sense. Team can essentially use him as a hired gun and don't have to worry about an aging RB impact their cap room in 2014 and 2015 like Williams.
If you have the option, Jackson is much more attractive than Williams today
Any team that trades for DWill can cut him after the season with zero cap hit. The Panthers are the ones on hook for the prorated signing bonus, a new team only takes on his base salary, which isn't guaranteed.
