Anyone else think it's a strong possibillity we trade D-will on draft day?

53 posts in this topic

The Panthers have made it no secret that we are open to trade talks about D-Will. I could possibly see Gettlemen making a move on draft day sending Williams somewhere for maybe a 3rd and a 4th round pick (hard to tell what the market would be for him). Could anyone else see this happening?

I think it makes more sense to keep him one more year and cut him next offseason

New GM. Anything can happen.

Not a bad idea or unlikely.

There is a zero percent chance we receive a third for DeAngelo if we move him on Draft night, let alone a third and a fourth....

No I don't see it because the cap implications are just as harsh if we trade him. He is ours for the upcoming season. Ron typically is spot on but I think he was talking out the side of his neck when he mentioned trading D-Will.

Doubt anyone makes a trade with backs like Bradshaw and Turner among others still on market.

It makes sense for us to do it as a June 1st trade not now. And not for a 4th. I don't doubt we have been shopping him, there is no magic in waiting until draft day when we can do the deal at anytime up until then for a draft pick this year. Might get a good 2014 draft pick for him though, especially if it was conditional and Williams plays well.

I'd guess a 5th at best and he'd have to be willing to renegotiate his contract. In other words, he'd have to be willing to go to the team we worked the trade out with and be willing to take a pay cut to do it.

In other words, it ain't gonna happen. He'll be a Panther this season and he'll be cut next off-season.

If we get a 4th, that'd be great but its a biggg hypothetical.

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
