The Carolina Panthers restructured RB DeAngelo Williams' contract. He was in the third season of a five-year, $43 million contract and was scheduled to earn $5 million with an $8.2 million salary cap number for 2013. Williams will still receive $5 million in cash this year, but the deal has been restructured in a way that reduces his cap number to $5 million, a cap savings of $3.2 million that leaves the team $8.46 million under their adjusted 2013 salary cap number of $126.232 million. Williams was scheduled to earn $4.75 million in non-guaranteed base salary with a $250,000 workout bonus this season. Under the renegotiated contract, Williams' base salary was lowered to $850,000 and his workout bonus reduced to $150,000. The remaining $4 million was converted to a signing bonus, which will be prorated against the Panthers' cap at $800,000 per season through 2017.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams carried 22 times for 93 yards in the Week 15 game against the San Diego Chargers, and he added two receptions for 51 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Tip: Williams just missed his first 100-yard game of the season, but his yardage total was easily a season high. He has touchdowns in each of the past two games, both receiving, and he has 43 total touches during the span. As such, he is worth using as a low-end RB2 or flex play heading into Week 16.
Sun, 09 Dec 2012 18:37:38 -0800

The Carolina Panthers didn't really have an update on RB Jonathan Stewart (ankle) after he left the team's Week 12 game Monday, Nov. 26, favoring his right ankle at the end of the first half. Stewart injured his right ankle in the preseason. RB DeAngelo Williams had 10 rushing for only 19 yards in the second half in Stewart's place. "It's sore and we'll see how he reacts to treatment," head coach Ron Rivera said of Stewart's ankle. "If not, I thought DeAngelo did a nice job coming in and assuming the role. He did a solid job. I think the other thing too that helps us an awful lot is really run when we have to do. That's the part about being a balanced offense: run when you want to and run when you have to, and I think we mixed it up."

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams carried seven times for just 18 yards in Week 11 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Williams did not have any receptions.
Fantasy Tip: Williams remains locked into the backup role behind RB Jonathan Stewart, who had 16 total touches and a score. As such, Williams is only worth keeping as a low-end RB3 or 'flex' player in the deepest of formats right now.
Sun, 11 Nov 2012 18:04:28 -0800
Carolina Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart led the way with 31 rushing yards on eight carries in Week 10 against the Denver Broncos, and he added two receptions for 23 yards.

Mon, 05 Nov 2012 11:08:50 -0800
Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams has seen his snaps increase over the past two games despite being demoted. Williams received five snaps in Week 7, 14 snaps in Week 8 and 18 snaps in Week 9.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams carried just six times for 37 yards in Week 9 against the Washington Redskins, but he was able to post a 30-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter.

Thu, 01 Nov 2012 07:58:08 -0700

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams said he is not sure why he was benched two weeks ago for RB Jonathan Stewart. Williams has just 13 carries for 37 yards in his last two games. He said he's trying to make the best of his opportunities and trying to remain patient. "I can't call the plays and run them too," Williams said. "I'm not throwing anybody under the bus. I'm not calling anybody out. I just try to make the best of my opportunity. Every play that we've drawn up is designed to score. And if we don't score on a play that's designed to score, then quite naturally you'll be frustrated."
Thu, 01 Nov 2012 05:16:13 -0700
Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams said Wednesday, Oct. 31, he is not paying any attention to trade rumors surrounding him. "The thought of staying a Panther never really crossed my mind because the thought of leaving never crossed my mind," Williams said.

It seems obvious that Williams won't be around in Carolina next year anyway.

Tue, 30 Oct 2012 12:50:03 -0700
Green Bay Packers RB Alex Green will remain the team's starting running back over RB James Starks due to his breakaway speed. The team would rather continue on with Green as the lead back rather than trade for Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams or St. Louis Rams RB Steven Jackson, too. General manager Ted Thompson prefers to save salary cap space so he can work on contracts for LB Clay Matthews, DT B.J. Raji and QB Aaron Rodgers.
Mon, 29 Oct 2012 16:14:21 -0700
Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera said the team is not looking to make any trades before the deadline Thursday, Nov. 1. "We've got to sit here and see if somebody does call, but we're not looking to move anybody or send anybody away or try to get anybody out there," Rivera said.

The Denver Broncos could be interested in Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams prior to the trade deadline if the price is not too high.

Carolina Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams said he's happy with his role in the team's crowded backfield this year. He averaged less than 10 carries per game last season, largely due to the presence of RB Jonathan Stewart and surprising rookie QB Cam Newton.
