Why the Panthers need to cut DeAngelo Williams

33 posts in this topic

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.

3.4 whole millions??? WOW, what a saving against our tiny cap problem.

It's about getting his contract off the books.

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

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.

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

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.

I guess you only remember the last two games of the season.

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

    • maybe but I doubt it would be the same...given Putin actually hates Hillary.  So there could be some money junk worth looking into but not on the Trump scale and not. 
    • With the depth of this draft, I have no problems going after more picks.  I am of leery of moving up to get guys when you end up having to sell the farm.  I know Gettleman loves to say he'd rather have quarter than two dimes, so I think that's going to be a part of this draft. Then again, if we can get two impact players, a couple of contributors, can we call this a failure?  Only time will tell.  According to the draftniks like Mayock (who'se up for the Redskins job) say you can get a 2nd round pass rusher in prior years drafts in the 4th.  Seems to say to me that moving up may not have as much value as we think.
    • But Russians are the enemy, or at least 100 days ago. Why should that change so much?  Anything to undermine the President at the time. To bad racism can't be used as a defense.
