Salary Cap

Actually getting rid of Williams will cost you 10 million not five. And if you designate it a June 1 cut, you have 5 mil in 2013 and another 5 million of dead cap space in 2014 when the cap is supposed to be flat again. Just the money alone make it difficult to cut Williams or Steward next year.

but all moves aren't made with just 2013 in mind...

new GM has to look at 2014 and beyond. I think most big moves made won't be about 2013...but more with 2014 in mind. We need to get rid of the investment at RB....big pictuire of the next couple seasons it makes sense.

yea good luck with Stewart being a premiere ba k, when given the chance this year he couldn't hold up. With all of the injuries he's had, his body has taken more of a beating than Williams who is battle tested.

all of you will be crying like schmucks if we make it to the playoffs and Stewart gets hurt the last game and we will have to rely on bacon back Tolbert.

Cam Newton, plus Tolbert, plus random RB...= better rushing attack than 90% of the NFL.

Funny thing is.....adding Double Trouble does what exactly? A slight bump? But look at the comical cost for the tiny bump..

Ridiculous scenario. 0% chance Stewart would make it to week 17.

some random runningback huh, so now you want to get rid of both and have to shell out 10 mill a year for nothing?

Ive been pulling for Williams all season and my twitter account proves that. So you would rather pay out close 5 mill a year for nothing instead of keeping him for 5 mill a year? If you say yeah then you are a troll, if you think Stewart can carry the.team then you wish death upon our constant play off hopes.

I have a problem with alot of people on this board over looking Stewbie's injury history. They act like you are making stuff up. When I saw the two backs from Alabama last night, I was thinking you should never pay two backs that kind of money. Pay one, let one walk, and draft another. When the time comes do the same with those backs financially. I like Stewart's game, but he has not played a full season. A thirty-five million dollar contract should require at least two healthy seasons out of a back.

If you would looking at what is best in 2014 then you would keep Williams in 2013, and dump him in 2014. That way the cap hit is only 6.4 million and if you used it as a June 1st cut, you would have 3.2 million as a cut in 2014 instead of 5 million if you cut him this year and you would have 3.2 million in 2015 as dead cap space.

You guys are willing to out your quarterback n harms way because you think he can take it? Wow, I want cam to put up 20x the passing yards over rushing. He is a quarterback and taking abuse year after year will take a toll, look at Peyton and then look at Warwick Dunn, they both had neck injuries and I don't want that for a franchise qb.

I'd rather have neither than both.

We have to start correcting our mess. Name 3 teams in the NFL whose top 2 RBs produced less rushing offense in the NFL.

Would you want Andre Johnson and Calvin Johnson on the same team if they were only allowed on the field together for 2 snaps a game? Or would you rather have Megatron and use Andre's cash to get another player that can play every down with Megatron.

ah, not so sure about that... up until this year Stewart only missed 2 or 3 games throughout his career.. DWill being "battled tested" involves being on IR 2 out of the last 3 years..

I only remember one year and Stewart was on injured reserve too if you remember correctly, that year goodson came in an got the offense going with his 3 consecutive 100 yard games because both were injured the deangelo came back and got his 100 yard games. So I think you are mistaken.
