Draft Scout DeAngelo Williams News
05/14/13 - RB DeAngelo Williams won't be released after agreeing to a restructured contract that reduces his cap figure and saves the franchise money on the final two years of the deal.
Williams, 30, was a first-round pick out of Memphis and has played his entire career in Carolina. He's the team's all-time rushing leader with 5,784 yards and 43 touchdowns.
According to Yahoo Sports, he's not going anywhere. Williams was the subject of trade and cap casualty rumors because of his age and the considerable cash remaining on the five-year, $43 million deal he signed as a free agent in 2011.
The Panthers lowered Williams' cap figure by $3.2 million in 2013 and reduces his salary by as much as $8 million in 2014 and '15. Carolina reportedly added two years to his deal, which now runs through 2017.
Williams rushed for 1,515 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2008, his first season as a starter, but totaled 1,573 yards and 12 touchdowns the past two seasons combined (24 starts, 32 games).
01/09/13 - RB DeAngelo Williams lost his starting job midway through the season, but then regained it when Jonathan Stewart suffered a high ankle sprain. The Panthers are in big cap trouble, so Williams and his big number may be moved. Stewart's younger, but injuries are a concern.
01/03/13 - RB DeAngelo Williams, who lost his starting job midway through the season, finished 2012 with 173 carries, his most since 2009.
12/27/12 - RB DeAngelo Williams has five touchdowns in his last five meetings with the Saints, and 650 rushing yards in his last six games against the divisional rival.
12/20/12 - RB DeAngelo Williams is averaging 3.6 yards per carry, which is the lowest of his seven-year career. His previous worst was 4.1 yards per carry in 2010 and 2006.
