If Kenjon Barner shows competence, is Deangelo gone on June 1?

He just signed a long-term deal with a ton of guaranteed money. The guarantees take away Carolina's leverage. He doesn't have to take a paycut, he can just let the Panthers cut him, take his checks, and go sign another contract elsewhere. Steven Jackson just got $12 million from the Falcons, with a $3.5 million dollar bonus.

Let's say your boss says that you can quit your job and still get paid. You also have the option to take another job and get paid twice. Moving is a hassle, but you're telling me an extra $10 million over the life of his next contract wouldn't entice him? He's human, and you're fooling yourself if you think he's going to willingly walk away from all that money.

Maybe you missed some of the posts in this thread explaining why DWill has no leverage, so let's try this again...

DWill has no guaranteed money left on his deal. We cut him and his earnings this year are zero until someone else picks him up.

The millions in dead money being discussed here are just cap charges. DWill received the money a couple of years ago.

So no, he has no leverage.

My thought are the potential cap saving is just to much for him to ignore.DWill is a favorite of mine but sometime you have to make those decisions for the better of the team. Even if Barner doesn't fit I could see them bring in a less expensive alternative.Right now I question Barners ability to block so I see him more as a 3rd down type of player.

He truly may not want to uproot his family and play elsewhere for only a mil or so more per season

In this scenario
1) he still earns close to 1 mil per year
2)gets to play the game he loves most
3) completes 10 years in the league which gets him a pension (if he plays 3 more years)

I'm not saying its promising, but there's definitely a chance.

Let hope that it goes down this way

Barner will replace DWill much sooner than later. Certain fans should begin accepting this sooner than later as well..

Glad to see he took the pay cut. Not as much as I expected, but its great we will see him retire a panther.

Looks like Barner will learn behind two of the best RB's in the league. When DWill has reached his wall, he will back up Barner and Stew. RB situation is taken care of for years to come!

I don't know why its so hard for some to grasp.  Had he not restructured he was GONE plain and simple.  RBs over 30 lose value. Thats how it works. Kenjon Barner wasn't drafted by accident, if he's able to take over early he's a much cheaper (and younger) option.
