Deangelo Williams Restructures Contract

196 posts in this topic

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.

 

williams required a complete restructuring as well.

 

it could be that they have been working on both. it could be they just decided to work on williams first.

 

i dunno.

A source tells Yahoo that DeAngelo Williams and the Panthers have agreed to a contract restructure that lowers his cap numbers in 2013-2015.
At age 30 with a declining role behind Jonathan Stewart, Williams didn't have much of a choice. He could either accept this restructure or be designated a post-June 1 cut. This deal ensures Williams will be on the team in 2013 as the latter half of a timeshare. The agreement saves Carolina $3.2 million off this year's cap without reducing Williams' total compensation, and also slashes his salary drastically in 2014 and 2015. In return, the Panthers will accept $2.267 million in "dead money" on their 2016 and 2017 salary caps, when Williams won't be on the roster because he'll be in his mid-30s and those two seasons will void based on the reworked contract terms. Williams has averaged just 10.2 carries per game over the last two years, a number we wouldn't expect to rise this season. He's no longer overpaid.

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....

yeah, a lot, heck most of what Gettlemen has done is stuff Hurney would have done if still here.

 

Hurney's biggest flaws where mortgaging our future and his price point on contract extensions. I think draft wise....Hurney let the HC and scouts handle it.  Most of what Gettlemen is doing though is standard Hurney magic stuff.  Hopefully our FA pickups pan out better under Gettlemen since that is his area of expertise.

Yep I am glad others can see this. I made a thread a while back called the inconvient truth gm edition or something like that stating that before the draft Gettleman had not done anything differently than I would have envisioned Hurney doing. Which is not neccessarily a bad thing.

 

Now fast foward a bit and I believe after round 1 the draft was handled a good bit different. I am optimistic this is a good thing.

D. Williams is not threatened by any rookie.

Better pass blocher, knows the system.

No rookie can even begin to threaten Williams role with the team.

You could argue that it makes it easier to cut Williams if he doesn't restructure. Fine.

Now all Dwill has to do is cut those preditor dreads.

At least get a trim to where it was in 09

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...

Isn't Poole the) from Tennessee? If so, I believe he is with Dallas now.
