I'd be shocked and amazed if Williams is cut before camp. Too much risk with almost nothing to be gained.

The most probable thing is this is his last year as a Panther.

Create several million in cap space....which means a starting caliber vet could be added ( which wouldnt be a Ted Ginn caliber guy).

Not much risk at all, just simply eating some money....and if they would rather eat more money vs waiting year.

Stewart, Tolbert, <insert whoever, Smith, rookie>, plus what Cam brings is top 5 caliber Rush attack and much more potent than what most of the league is working with.

I never get why it is risky not to have a super stud backup at RB...

I think DLo is a june 1st cut NEXT season. Love the guy, but the writing is on the wall.

It pisses me off that Williams is viewed as such a thorn in the teams side.

He has done nothing but produce when given the opportunity and become a leader/team player/fan favorite. All this crap was solely brought on from the albatross contract he signed from dumb ass hurney. You can't blame him for signing something like that but you can blame the craptastic GM who gave it to him.

even if he isn't cut, if he starts the season slow and ineffective like he historically has and barner steps in and produces...he could find himself sitting on the sidelines.

 

Thats been our offensive line and Stewart too. Its never been just D Will

Just because we want the overall betterment of the team (cap money going to positions of major need) doesn't mean we don't appreciate everything that DeAngelo has done. I'm a huge fan of his (as a person and a player).

I tried to word it so that it didn't sound like an attack on anyone's viewpoint about him as a player. I just think it sucks that there is hardly any room for appreciation of the man because of a bunch of financial crap that is completely out of anyone's control. I'm sure wed be hard pressed to find anyone here critical of his contributions or actual on the field ability he has shown through last season.

a ton of mileage. a history loaded with injuries and missed games. the 7th highest paid RB in the league this year and will be the 4th highest paid next year and again the year after that , his salary growing by a million each year....i can just hear eyes rolling in the heads of GMs and coaches around the league, esp. when you can find better RBs pretty much at any point in the draft as evidenced again and again and again yearly by teams smart enough to not draft early RBs or give them giant contracts. the value just isn't there.

 

there is no interest because he's not nearly worth the money he's getting  esp. when the market is as low and the league is leaning more on RB committees and the passing game.

 

the only ones dumb enough to give an RB, esp. with that much mileage that much money and already have. if he was our whole offense like ADP and MJD and chris johnson...yeah, i could understand it but that isn't the case  in fact he's the backup and one of two RBs we have overpaid for.

 

the whole situation just sucks.

But he's not bad either.

Kenjon was bad at the college level, which means Deangelo is light years ahead of him at this point.

He's one of my all time favs. And yes he couldnt turn down the money. But he could take a pay cut/restructure to help out.

kenjon was bad at the college level because he rarely had to do it.

 

if the only thing keeping kenjon from supplanting williams is pass protection, williams is in trouble.
