can someone please explain to me how the whole "cap hit" works if we trade him? i thought it would help us if another team is willing to take over his contract and it would relieve us right?

For PT, the cap impact has been explained numerous times on the forum. It has been explained in this thread and many others. Go back a few pages and start reading...

This is not going to happen. Any long time Panther fan knows this stuff doesn't happen.

Please just kill this topic.

And why is there no love for deangelo on this board? Personally I wouldn't be happy with a 3rd for him. He still has a lot left in the tank. Just need a damn doach

I dont think there is "no love" for dwill, I think people realize by dumping is contract we have moe money to sign a dwayne bowe or greg Jennings or use some of that $ to resign Ghardy

Trades not going to happen. No way the FO eats the money for a low round pick.

Thanks!! So in essence we would be paying $9.6 mill in dead money next season but then be freed of his contract? If so, that sounds good to me since we're not using him at all.

Here's the thing about that. Williams' and everyone else's contract that runs past this year, that next year's bonus proration is already counting for 2013. Stay, go. Cut, trade. It's going to be there.

So, that leaves 2 years of bonus left to account for (2014, 2015), at $3.2 million/year ($6.4 million total) that accelerates versus $4.75 million salary and $ 250k bonus (total $4.9 million). So really, the two options leave you $1.4 million less space for dumping him than keeping him, which is not that big a deal if you want to drop him.

The thing that's odd is that they've supposedly decided they just don't want him anymore, or that he and Hurney were so tied that he immediately needed demoted or traded ASAP. That part's odd. He's the more rational guy to cut, but the idea he has to just immediately GTFO is weird. I guess it's inevitable, but it's very sudden.

it's not hard to figure out. the intent was not to get rid of him right now.

williams got demoted and everyone overreacted. naturally, he's not going to be happy about it. other teams know it and are considering throwing hooks in the water to see what bites.

contrary to popular rumors, the panthers are not going to just let williams go at the first sign of an offer. they want to dump his contract, but it's going to be one on of 3 conditions...

1. a team ponies up a can't refuse offer by the trade deadline

2. he restructures, or...

3. he gets cut after june 1st 2013.

GM or no GM, this is how it will go down.

So really, the two options leave you $1.5 million less space for dumping him than keeping him, which is not that big a deal if you want to drop him.

Every time I feel I get a grasp of a contract something new pops up. I definitely think his situation is a weird one. I don't know why he fell out of flavor from one week to another. If we don't make out like bandits on a trade offer with him, we might as well keep him.

The new GM should sit with him in the offseason and discuss 2 options:

1. Restructure and stay with the team as a starter/backup in a power run offense where he was successful.

2. Restructure and we'll trade him to a team that will have quality carries for him. Restructuring helps us in the future and will allow a trade to go smoother.

DWill doesn't seem like a selfish player/person and he got his payday. I think he would accept one of the above options if the deal is fair.
