The cash-strapped Panthers are saying they wouldn’t mind keeping running back DeAngelo Williams, but buzz around the combine is they already have shopped him. Given the trade market for Williams probably was not very inviting, the Panthers may now be looking for ways to keep him.
The Panthers are currently $5 million over the salary cap and Williams has an $8 million cap number. If they release Williams, he’ll eat up over $9 million of dead money.
It sounds like Williams isn’t going anywhere right now.
