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.

Watch us cut Stewart. I would seriously die laughing at the shitstorm


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.

Teams don't trade for expensive RBs...only in Pantherland do people think that is an option for teams.

If you think about it we went into this year paying 54 billion dollars to RBs.

The new GM has touched 2 RB deals...increasing the cap hits on both for this year.

Kinda funny. I am sure there is a method to the madness....but who would have guessed we would have all 3 and Gettlemen's first duties would involve in increasing the cap hits the RBs occupy

No, it takes up a million in cap space. Stewart and Tolbert having there deals tweaked cost us cap space

I like Tolbert, but I like D Will and J Stew also. They're just overpaid..
