I doubt he'll be cut this year, but licking up Tolbert for two more years tells me he will be after this season.

This means one of three possible things:


-This move is the harbinger flare of the end of the Deangelo Williams era

-Gettleman is just as retarded and incompetent as Marty

-Richardson is indeed calling the shots

I disagree that he's the best back on the team, or the most complete, or the most/best <insert word here>. Stewart has those accolades locked up, and practices about 25% of the time.

Tolbert is decent at what he does. He's a bowling ball RB, that can definitely pick up the tough yards when needed. He might be even better in a more conventional offense, but I'm not sure yet.

the only thing keeping deangelo from being cut is probably that stew doesn't really possess the breakaway speed that rivera wants to have in the backfield. williams is the closest thing to a scat back that we've got. that said i think a minor weakness at the RB position isn't that hard to swallow when you've got cam newton as your quarterback and when that money can go towards shoring up the offensive line or defense.

i'll honestly be surprised if deangelo is on the roster come august.

I agree, honestly, but you would think it'd be easy to find a guy in the draft if you're just looking for a speed back. Hell, someone like Barner late in the draft could be exactly that.

We just restructured him...and no matter how you cut him he doesn't create any space.

And he is Rivera's preferred RB

If I recall players have said Armond is the fastest player on the entire team.
