He has 50 carries for 177 yards, which puts him on pace for a 472-yard season. The Panthers have sizable investments in two other running backs, Jonathan Stewart at $36.5 million for five years and Mike Tolbert at $10 million for four years. Oh, and by the way, Williams turns 30 next April, making him a target for release.
Thank goodness that we really DIDN'T trade for this guy...
Panthers paid him a $21M signing bonus. So the rest of the contract is 5 years $22 million, that's not a bad contract for a 1b back and insurance for the starter.
