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.

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

What has DeAngelo done when he wasn't playing the worst defensive unit in NFL history of late that has impressed?

That's ignorant man. Stewart sucked before he got injured this year too. Did DW, Stew, and Tolbert all 3 forget how to run in 1 season or was it the way they were used? Chud's read option infatuation and giving each back 6 carries a game was the problem. Once we lined up in a pro set with a full back Deangelo looked like his old self again. And that's with the patchwork oline of 3rd stringers we had out there. People keep saying DW only had a huge game against New Orleans...Did Stewart have one breakout game at all? He got to start what 4 games before guess what he went down. Tolbert does everything that Stewart does well ALOT cheaper. We don't have someone with Deangelo's breakaway ability. There's a good chance we let DW go for cap reasons but I don't get the hate on him, Chud Mike Martz'd this team, it's not fair to blame the backs for it. Put DW on Washington, Houston, or Denver and he's a top 5 RB this year.

What has Stewart done? Or Tolbert? or any Panthers running back? Maybe it's the line and the system instead of 3 guys that could run the ball damn well until our oline and scheme? Stewart came from a read option offense in college. Why aren't you for talking smack about him sucking this year?
