Deangelo Williams Restructures Contract

good point and good strategy if that is what we were doing.

 

barner and klein make williams and beason expendable. that's not to say they are as good or better, but both are and will be solid players who would be able to get the job done....and save us money to improve other areas.

 

i expect beason's contract to be re-done soon. 

 

at this point I'm pretty curious why he hasn't been restructured, or won't sometime in the near future..  quite the cap hit over the years for a guy who hasn't made it onto the field.  He has examples all around him of guys helping the team out.  If anyone, Beason should be next..  However, his may require an entire renegotiation at this point.

When Beason restructures Zod should change the gray borders to a rainbow/unicorn theme.

If Beast restructures this off-season too, then this place will erupt.

Cap Space, b****es!

Somewhere in this thread it was questioned why DWill would make concessions when he could just stay home and collect a check for doing nothing. That is incorrect. Dwill would have been due nothing had we cut him, and he likely would have been disappointed in potential offers from other teams. So the Panthers had all the leverage and DWill did the smart thing.

I'm glad he's still a Panther and very happy he and Gettleman got it done.

I gotta say that I was and still is kinda expecting a cut at the) RB position. So we've got D Will, J Stew and the Rook from Oregon, along with Poole and Smith pulling up the rear. This has to be the best RB backfield in the league...

Now that Williams has restructured, does that make his original 5-year deal Hurney made look good?  What I mean is, was this Hurney's goal all along...sign the player to a big contract with the hopes of restructuring down the line?  Or was Hurney just a derp-de-derp and Gettleman is just cleaning up the mess.

Exactly, he did not even take pay cut for this year either.

 

Could have done the same exact thing next year. He basically just signed a 3 year $7.73 million extension that guarantees him a roster spot for through 2015 without losing a penny in what he was scheduled to make this year.

This is great news. I know barner will still get some snaps, but sitting behind Stewart and Dwill will be a great learning experience unless Shula can find a bigger role for him.

Very well could have been in the card's. It was his specialty after all. Good luck of convincing the huddle of that tho.

Honestly probably the former, but nobody will admit it.  Hurney's M.O. always was to restructure and keep guys who wanted to be here, for better or worse.  I have no doubts that this same thing would have happened with Marty as G.M. still.  Now where I have doubts, is from a player evaluation, and a players fair market value standpoint.  Those were Hurney's biggest downfalls....
