New Carolina Panthers GM Dave Gettleman inherits a roster that has a lot of talent, but also has all kinds of salary cap problems. That means Gettleman is going to have to make some tough decisions fast.

It doesn't get much tougher than cutting the franchise's all-time leading running back DeAngelo Williams at the age of 29. But Williams is a luxury the Panthers can no longer afford.

Williams is set to make $4.75 million this season in base salary. He has an $8.2 million cap figure, according to ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas. Cutting Williams and designating him a June first cut would ultimately save the Panthers $3.4 million in cap space for this season, according to Yasinskas.

I say let gettleman do his work, and leave the speculation in the oven. He will restructure a few people THEN let someone go.

I've been ready to move on from the guy and his diminished skills for two years now.

Increasing chance we'll cut D-Will just like there's an increasing chance we're gonna promote beane to GM because Gettleman has no record of scouting college players.

Why? so we can continue starting inferior talent. If DeAngelo's talent has deminished then Stewart must really suck because he has shown me nothing that says he is as good as Williams.

No I've seen them all, I believed he's been misutilized, and the last two games should prove the talent is still there
