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.

A little different then what we've been hearing. I think he gets traded by a desperate team.

NFL LIve reported the same thing....DeAngelo is the only big name trade still being considered....Jackson is off the market, so this actually helps the Panthers right now.

"Viable" is the word the article used. You then ran with that and turned it into "serious". Theres quite a difference in those two words.

Only way a D Will trade would even REMOTELY make me happy:

Is if on Draft day we somehow finagled our way back into the first round... Even then I would not be happy with our current backfield.

I say he stays though long term because my scenario would likely never happen... And if we took anything less than the first pick in the 2nd rnd we would be seriously fuggin ourselves from a talent standpoint. Contract be damned.... Talent wise, if we get anything less than a 1st rounder with his career stats and lack of injury we'd literally be shooting ourselves in the foot.

Just my .02

it would be laughable to get a first round pick for a 29 year old running back lol.

One guy on Fox mentioned getting a second for Williams from GB. If they offered that, they can have him in a heartbeat and ill throw in a used copy of Assassin's Creed: Revelations.
