Deangelo Williams Restructures Contract

Excellent news, I wonder what incentive was used to leverage, because with how his contract was he didn't have to do anything and still get paid

DWill is a class act.  He does not seem to mind sharing carries and glory with JStew. (That trait is rare)   It is so cool how they celebrate each other's successes.  I think he likes being a Panther.

 

You know that Hurney has been telling people the contracts for Williams and Beason were demanded by Richardson, who adores both players.  Presumably, Gettleman was able to get permission to restructure, maybe as part of his discussions before he took the job.

 

 

I could see JR telling Hurney to get it done.  Don't think he said be stupid.  Hurney blaming JR....trying to get another GM job?

No, he's still a Panther.

You and FP are right, we still have Poole. The guy I was thinking of was Darrell Green's kid, the WR some were high on. He signed a futures contract with Dallas.

Thanks for helping me reorganize my brain, an oft needed activity.

Who were the idiots claiming Gettleman was just Hurney 2.0?

Restructuring to keep a 30 yr old RB? Done whatever to keep HIS boy. You guys are right...Hurney would have NEVER done that...

Now that Hurney is gone people act as if he could do nothing...

All Gettlemen has done is gotten rid of Anderson. A move made in large part bc Luke stole Beason's gig....and now has to get on the field.

This is still Hurney's roster in reality. Gettlemen obviously didn't think Hurney built too bad of a team....or simply doesn't have the authority to do that much.

No problem fellow Panther. I'm just glad that we were able to do it civil w/o all of the immaturity that normally goes on here...

All he did was cut Anderson? He restructured Ryan Kalil and J Stew's contract, got Gross to take a pay cut, resigned Captain Munneryln and Dwan Edwards at bargain prices. Brought in one of the better nickle backs in the game in DJ Moore. Brought in a mid tier player in MIke Mitchell looking to step up to starting role. Signed Dominik Hixon to give us another target. Helped our return woes with Tedd Ginn JR. He fixed DT in the draft. Now he has restructured DWill

 

 

 

 

Dave G has ton of sht this offseason with not much money to work with. He has improved this roster drastically.

Now he has restructured DWill

And in the case of DWill, he was able to keep a productive player while cutting out $8 million dollars in potential cap charges.

Yes, we will take a $2 million cap hit in 2016 when the final years void, but it's a safe bet the cap will be significantly higher by that time. Even if it isn't, $2 million is not that hard to make up.

One other thing...I think part of DWill's "demotion" last season was a desire by the coaches and FO to see how Stew did carrying the load, to see if they could safely jettison DWill this year. Once Stew went down and DWill finished the year strong, they may have decided to try to keep him if it could be done at a reasonable price. He's still getting more than he would probably get elsewhere, but it's a lot better deal for us than his old one.
