P.S. OP: "serious" isn't synonymous with "viable"

That trade wouldn't even go through in Madden. He's 29 with a HUGE contract. You trade him NOW while he has value with teams in the hunt looking for help at RB. We need the cap relieve and D. Will is no longer the best RB on this team. There is no chance in hell you get a 2nd, and at this point we'd be LUCKY as hell to get a 3rd.
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
If we don't unload him now, all that's going to happen is that the new GM will unload him and we will get much less back, if anything.

What would the cap hit be if we trade him?
Even though trading Williams now would cause an immediate $9.6 million acceleration onto next year’s salary cap, a source with knowledge of the situation said the Panthers are “absolutely” prepared to absorb that hit if the right deal comes along.
Moving Williams would benefit the Panthers in two ways, First, it would make more than $17 million in future base salaries go away (all his guaranteed money was in the first two years of his deal), for a player who has already fallen behind Jonathan Stewart on the depth chart.

Currently, we may not need to trade anyone to get the first pick in the 2nd round. *sigh*
