As we the fans go about our daily lives trying to make a living, the owners and players are bickering over how to split $9 billion. I wish I had that problem.
While they try and make this monumental decision on fewer work hours than our Congress, there are still huge questions to be made by star free agents. One player with an important decision to make is running back DeAngelo Williams.
The Carolina Panthers star is the best running back in this free agent class. He was injured last season, but there is no bigger playmaker than a guy who still haunts Jon Gruden. He can run inside, outside, catch, and block. He’ll stiff arm, twist, juke, truck and just make defenders look silly.
His choice is difficult as he loves Carolina and has grown a strong relationship with Jonathan Stewart, forming the only duo to each rush for over 1,100 yards in history.
Unfortunately, the question arises if Williams is worth a new contract with Carolina having Stewart and Mike Goodson, who had performed well in the absence of the duo. The Panthers also have Tyrell Sutton, who can be a contributor.
Does Williams rejoin Stewart to form one of the best backfields in the past 25 years, or does Williams look elsewhere for a shot at a championship and being the featured back?
