Report: DeAngelo Williams restructures deal | 05/15/2013 8:57 AM
NewsA source tells Yahoo that DeAngelo Williams and the Panthers have agreed to a contract restructure.
ImpactThe deal ensures that Williams will be on the team in 2013 in some kind of timeshare role behind Jonathan Stewart. The restructure saves Carolina $3.2 million off this year's cap without reducing Williams' total compensation, but it does slash his salary drastically in 2014 and 2015. At age 30, he didn't have much of a choice. Williams has fallen behind Stewart over the last two seasons, averaging just 10.2 carries per game.
Teams weren't offering much for DeAngelo | 05/05/2013 12:26 PM
NewsAccording to the Charlotte Observer, the "one or two teams" that called the Panthers about DeAngelo Williams prior to last year's NFL trade deadline "weren't offering much."
ImpactWilliams has a big salary and declining ability, and he turned 30 in April. It's not surprising the Panthers were unable to get anything for him. Rookie GM Dave Gettleman was recently noncommittal on Williams' 2013 roster spot. The Panthers would take a cap hit to release Williams, and probably wouldn't even consider it until they see rookie Kenjon Barner perform well in padded practices.
DeAngelo Williams expected back with Panthers | 02/23/2013 11:40 AM
NewsCiting a source with knowledge of the situation, the Charlotte Observer reports the Panthers plan to keep DeAngelo Williams for 2013.
ImpactCarolina could save $3.4 million in cap space by designating Williams a "post-June 1 cut," but doing so would leave significant "dead money" on their 2014 cap. The Observer's source allows that the Panthers may still pursue a restructuring of Williams' contract. With Williams expected back, Carolina's backfield will remain a timeshare involving DeAngelo, Jonathan Stewart, and Mike Tolbert. It'll remain a muddled fantasy situation.
GM doesn't see why team can't keep Williams | 02/21/2013 4:14 PM
NewsWhen asked if the team can keep both DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, Panthers GM Dave Gettleman said, "I don't see why not."
Impact"Decisions have to be made," said Gettleman. "There's obviously going to have to be some work done. It's no secret. The bottom line is everybody knows we're over the cap and we've got to get there." Stewart is a lock to stay with the team after restructuring his deal, but Williams will likely be a post-June 1 cut to split up the cap hit between 2013 and 2014.
Rivera won't comment in DeAngelo's status | 02/19/2013 12:19 PM
NewsCoach Ron Rivera declined to comment on the status of potential cap casualty DeAngelo Williams.
Impact"We're going through the whole thing first and foremost before those decisions are made," Rivera said. It's likely a case of a coach not wanting to throw dirt on a player before he's officially buried. The cap-strapped Panthers are widely expected to make Williams a post-June 1 cut and roll with Jonathan Stewart, whose a lock to be back after getting more money added to his guaranteed 2013 base salary.
Panthers can save room by cutting D-Will | 02/14/2013 10:49 AM
NewsUpdating previous items, the Panthers could save $3.4 million in 2013 salary cap space by releasing DeAngelo Williams as a "post-June 1" cut.
ImpactThe drawback is tying up nearly $6 million in "dead money," or unusable salary cap space for 2014. The Panthers are going to be in cap jail next offseason, too. Williams now looks like a sure bet to be released with the post-June 1 designation, however, simply because Carolina's first priority is to get under the 2013 salary cap. They're currently $14 million over it.
Panthers would take cap hit to cut DeAngelo | 02/10/2013 6:29 PM
NewsThe Charlotte Observer confirms that the Panthers would take a salary cap hit to release DeAngelo Williams.
ImpactWilliams has $9.6 million left in prorated signing bonus money, which would all accelerate to 2013 if he were cut or traded. If released, Williams' $4.75 million base salary would come off the books, but the cap hit would be $4.85 million. The Observer suggests designating Williams as a post-June 1 casualty, allowing them to spread that $4.85M hit over the 2013 and 2014 seasons.
