Espn insider:do not cut deangelo williams

I'm all for deangelo staying. We just need to give him more carries. I hope this year we lean more on the run game and use play action more. I honestly believe that if we run deangelo right, he will have a 1,000 yard year. He is nowhere near being finished. About the cap? That's not my job to worry about it. I'll leave that up to the powers that be.

So when you pay for ESPN Insider it has articles advising NFL executives about their rosters?! Interesting..

So its like the Huddle minus the frequency.

This is the type of stuff "Insiders" pay for? I could have told you all of that for free.

Keep him and re-structure, but give him more than 7-8 carries a game.

I am concerned about how injury prone Stewart seems to be... even when he's not missing games he always seems to be nursing some sort of injury.

DeAngelo was awesome against the worst D in NFL history....but that was about it.

We just need to invest in the OL. Not RBs.

We need OL no doubt, but we still need every play maker we can keep!

My main problem is that since the contract it take DeAngelo 6 games to get into shape it seems.. He breaks zero tackles, accelerates slowly but then is a different guy toward the end. I just think he is a guy who naturally lays back too much and tou have to get on him early to get him to focus..hopefully(if he is on the roster) he does that from the start in 2013.

Well, it comes free with the subscription which is fairly cheap. The only thing that I don't like about the mag is the relatively small font size for these aging eyes (but that's most print media).LOL At least I can read Insider's crap easily by increasing the size with the "Ctrl" and "+" buttons. LOL

In regards to Deangelo, the Insider is missing the mark, insinuating that J-Stew and Tolbert, along with Armond Smith will not be effective. All of our RBs were not nearly as effective as they could be during the first half of the season because of play calling. Stew got hurt before the coaches remembered the running game still existed. I would love to keep D-Will if we could work it out, but Stew is younger and stronger, and arguably a better pass catcher. D-Will's gonna have to take a marked pay cut.

We probably have about the same cap relief from a restructuring as we do cutting him outright. He's still a good player, and I think we should keep him and try to fix the O-line.

Love these conversations from the fanbase.

Same fan base who fell all over themselves slobbering about "double trouble". Same fan base that wants to sign every FA and every cut from other teams.

Same fan base that is only now realizing, like Hurney who was let go, what the rest of the league already knew. Big money RB's went out of style 5-10 yrs back. Course the panthers are $50 million and 5 years late to that realization.

At this point, picking out any RB who will lead us to the "promise land" only proves that you are still stuck in the Hurney mindset.

Business, it is a business. At this point, the business view would be that you are stuck with Williams. So, trade Stewart, let Dwill thing run its course and never get in this type of bind again.

Gettleman has the right idea. Big guys, QB's, WR's is where the money should be spent. If in a few years, the league changes a bunch of rules, it might dictate a different approach, but for now, I think he gets it, unlike the "double trouble" crowd here

Trading Stewart would give us negative cap room at this point. Probably not a good idea.
