People forget that Dwill was considered a top 3 back a couple of years ago.

People also think that every other team in the NFL has an entire roster of hall of famers playing for the league minimum.

I hope our new GM knows how to work with the cap. Most of the guys that I've seen we are looking at have 0 experience working with the cap. Guess they could have an assistant that does the cap stuff

unless both he and stewart both touch the rock 20x a game each, there's no way to justify the amount of money that is tied up in carolina's backfield.

No one forgets that....it is just irrelevant when looking at our future and how we need to build/spend money going forward

He's a smart guy that genuinely wants to win. A re-negotiated contract here makes a lot more sense to him than testing the waters.

A young RB that fits what our OC wants to do makes even MORE sense.

And Marion Barber was also considered one of the best pure runners at the position at that time


He's retired now

Sure, to the staff - I'm going by DeAngelo's point of view. He won't have a ton of leverage, and knows it.

He'll renegotiate and stay. JStew is way too injury prone to be our lone back, and DWill is a known quantity that still shows that he has the big play ability. The zone read killed him this year, he was getting hit as he was being given the ball most of the time.

I don't see DWill having a big pay day anywhere. He might even get more money here than anywhere else, given what we seem to like to shell out for people we draft. I wouldn't be surprised if he was a Panther next year, but I'd really only expect that if our current staff is gone.

Yeah, more important to have players the staff wants....

and you can find RB production for a Cam offense for dirt cheap and invest elsewhere.

Williams will probably play for 5 or 6 more years as long as he doesn't get injured; he doesn't really have that many carries.
