Panthers Releasing RB DeAngelo Williams

Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams tells Molly Grantham that the team has informed him that they play to release him.

  • David Newton reports that a Panthers spokesman said Williams hasn’t officially been released.
  • However, Newton mentions that this doesn’t mean he won’t be.

There had been talk that Williams could be on the chopping block this offseason, so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

Williams, 31, signed a three-year, $10 million contract with the Panthers that included $4 million guaranteed. He had base salaries of $1.85 million (2015), $1 million (2016), and $1 million (2017).

According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Williams will free up $733,333 in available cap space, assuming this isn’t a post-June 1 release. This would create $5.6 million.

If the Panthers wait until June 1, they would create $2 million cap saving while creating $4,333,333.

In 2014, Williams ran for 219 yards on 63 carries (3.5 YPC) to go along with five receptions for 44 yards receiving over the course of six games.
