Panthers running back DeAngelo Williamswas shocked to learn that none of the wide receivers who caught passes for Carolina last year would be back this year.

Asked on NFL AM about the departure of veteran receiver Steve Smith, Williams said he hated to see Smith go, but it went beyond just that. Williams said that he doesn’t know what the front office is thinking at the receiver position.

“We lost them all,” Williams said of the Panthers’ receivers. “That was tough, man. I played with Steve for eight years, and I know the chip he has on his shoulder, and he’s a playmaker. I couldn’t believe that we made those moves. Like, I’m still in shock. Not only did we lose him, but Ted Ginn Jr., Brandon LaFell, and [Domenik] Hixon.”

Asked if he feels that losing receivers puts more pressure on the running backs, Williams answered, “No, it puts more pressure on our front office because you make these moves, getting rid of four receivers, you’ve got to bring in guys.”

So far, the guys the Panthers have brought in are Jerricho CotcheryJason Avant and Tiquan Underwood. Williams was careful not to criticize his new teammates, but he clearly isn’t convinced that the Panthers can be as good in the passing game this year as they were last year. In that skepticism of the Panthers’ receiving corps, Williams is far from alone.

We can't be as good as the 28th offense in the league D-Will?  I mean, really?

I'd be more worried about getting continually stuffed with less talent at oLine.

I never liked DeAngelo. Just something about him. I don't believe these were great comments to make. He is trying to say that if the offense takes a step back it's the fault of the front office, not the other offensive players on the field.

D-Will should take a pay cut before he opens his mouth like this.  You are part of the problem dude.

If the people you bring in to replace those you let go are actually worse, then yes, it's the fault of the front office.

 

But the offseason isn't over yet.  Dwill knows this. We'll see how the draft goes.

I like DWill, but gosh I wonder if there was anything he could have done to help the team out....nah probably not.

Stewart and Deangelo have both made some comments/tweets this offseason about their frustrations. Want some of these guys to stay? Offer to take an outright paycut for doing nothing but riding a bicycle (Stew). I'm not going to knock a player getting his money and wanting all of it (I probably would too)...but at the same time, don't open your mouth about money issues and losing guys to the media when you're a huge problem to our current issue.

 

Instead, they can currently be found counting their Hurney money, being arguably the two biggest problems on the team cap wise.

He will be in a bigger shock when his next team doesn't pay him as well as the Panthers did.

Didn't Graham say basically the same thing while at the same time demanding 25% of the Saints cap for himself.

Some guys just do not have a clue...
