deangelo williams will not be traded

61 posts in this topic

Reasons why he will not be traded:

1. It is the smart thing to do. Not the Panther way.

2. His contract is ridiculous.

3. There are better players to be had who are younger and cheaper

DeAngelo Williams dismisses reporters' questions about trade possibility. Asked how he deals w the talks, Williams said "By doing what I'm..

Well, this is interesting...

There's been a decent amount of rumors that the Packers could be sniffing around DeAngelo and now Aaron Rodgers drops this little nugget:

“Quantity is important – we want to have a certain amount of runs every game to keep them honest,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “But I have to say the quality of them has not been anywhere where we’d like them. . . . We’ve got to run the ball better.”

he ain't going to green bay...

Despite back-to-back disappointing games, Alex Green will remain the Packers' lead back, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein.

Coach Mike McCarthy has expressed disappointment in the ineffective rushing attack after the past two games, but Green is apparently getting a pass on his inability to read what little holes have been opened. McCarthy reportedly believes Green -- with a 2.40 YPC the past three weeks -- "deserves the opportunity" and offers "breakaway" potential lacking in James Starks. Per Silverstein, GM Ted Thompson's preference is to save his money (as well as the requisite draft picks) to extend the contracts of Clay Matthews, B.J. Raji, and Aaron Rodgers as opposed to ponying up for high-salaried trade candidates such as Steven Jackson or DeAngelo Williams.

Multiple league sources tell Profootballtalk.com there's a "viable chance" DeAngelo Williams is traded ahead of Thursday's 4ET deadline.

According to reporter Darin Gantt, "several" teams have reached out to Carolina, and the "interest is serious." The sizable cap hit the move would entail has led many to believe Williams is untradeable, but according to Gantt, the Panthers are "absolutely" prepared to take the hit if a desirable deal presents itself. Gantt believes it "seems apparent" Williams won't be back with the Panthers in 2013 even if he stays put Thursday. As if it wasn't already clear, Jonathan Stewart no longer has competition for lead-back duties in Carolina.

Hopefully we at least get our 3rd round pick back for him...

I would LOVE that. I am thinking a 4th-5th.

I'd be sick if we took anything less than 2nd for him. How can Gantt or anyone else speak in absolutes about the future of Williams, when we will have a new gm and more than likely a whole new coaching staff heading into 2013?

Hell the article even states that the 9.6 million dollar cap hit would take its effect against the 13 cap. His scheduled cap hit for 13 is 8.2 million.

I personally just can't get behind the idea of trading him. I would understand it more if we planned on keeping this current coaching regime but I just don't see that happening nor do I endorse it.

It will take some restructuring of other deals to accommodate the 9.6 million hit.

I don't think there is any way we are getting a 2nd rounder for DWill.

Here are his last 3 seasons:

A 2nd rounder is not justifiable.

A 29 year old RB that is past his prime with 1400 rushing yards over the last 3 seasons doesn't equate to 2nd round pick.

I think MHS is more on target with 4th-5th rounder.
