I say trade him, he is not his old self, getting tired of seeing him being stuffed in the backfield.


Yes because that has nothing to do with the sh*tty way the o-line is playing.

I'd rather just use him, properly.



Amen.

And HTF do you fall behind in the Depth Chart to a guy (Stewart) averaging 3.5 yards per carry?
That is a pathetic output for a RB who just himself signed a 5 year, 36.5 million total, 22.5 million guaranteed contract extension.
DWill's contract also has less guaranteed money than Stewarts, 21 million to 22.5.

The Panthers "brain thrust" at this point is little more than a wet fart.

Not p!ssed off enough yet about the Panthers running attack?

I'm sorry but how on Earth can any of us make that determination? Our backfield so far this year has been ignored to the point of lunacy. Neither back, especially DWill, has been given enough work on proper NFL run plays to show that.

We're one game removed from "it's ok gaiz we'll just option again - that'll fool them"...remember?

Pretty good point.

Sadly, tougher to do wight now because the OL is in lousy shape and Williams just isn't a 'be his own blocker' type like Stewart can be.

Fix the OL and the playcalling then it makes perfect sense to keep him.










Except that it's pretty tough at this point to fix his contract :(

Since it seems pretty obvious that Deangelo won't be back with the team next season, I'm hoping we trade him now and get something for him instead of just cutting him.

Also, I have Stew and DWill on my fantasy team as I figured if either got hurt, the other would be a great fantasy play, trade DWill now and I have two more startable RB's, would be nice, hahaha

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.


We would not be paying anything next season. The $9.6M is merely the unamortized portion of his signinng bonus that would be accelerated against next year's cap.

It has everything to do with the shitty O-line play, and shitty offensive game planning. But, that's the way it is right now and to be honest, as much as I love Deangelo (I have a mid-tier jersey of his, even), it'd probably be best for all parties involved to go ahead and get something for him now. We could probably get a mid range pick for him, and get the money out of the way in one shot (next year's cap) and he could go to a contender where he can thrive and hopefully, for him, get a ring. Last chance this year, cuz the next few are ours :)

He will be 30 by the time the new GM and likely coach can utilize him.
He's a grossly overpaid running back.
I lovehim but it's time to move on if it's of any benefit to the future.

Then we are one injury away from Nick Goings being our #1 Running Back.

We traded Goodson and now we want to trade Williams. Tell me who we are going use at running back if Stewarts toe acts up? Tolbert?

I don't know what Williams did to be in Rivera's poohouse. When Rivera is gone next year and our RB depth chart looks like crap remember this thread.

I found it interesting that he got so many touches on Sunday. Looked like an audition.

If Florio is correct, the cap hit we'd suffer if we trade him isn't that bad really. Just under $5 mil more next year than he'd cost us if we kept him, then we'd be off the hook for his salary.

3 trade scenarios I'd like to see

1) Conditional pick (3rd to a 2nd if team makes playoff and he plays x amount of time) WE don't take cap hit
2) 2nd round pick with conditional to move to 1st if team makes playoffs AND WE assume cap hit

Honestly...I don't even know if they allow such things.

Mixed feelings about this but leaning towards wishing he would stay. Having two high priced RBs on the roster has almost nothing to do with a 1-6 record. That falls on the coaches, mgmt, ownership and, most importantly, the player's attitudes. Not lack of talent.
