Panthers RB DeAngelo Williams Discusses Future

Provided a new collective bargaining agreement is reached, Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is scheduled to be a free agent after the season.

Despite the presence of 2008 first-round running back Jonathan Stewart and 2009 fourth-round pick Mike Goodson, Williams would like to stay with the Panthers, Joseph Person of The Charlotte Observer reports.

"I think it’s a proven fact that you need more than a couple tailbacks to get through seasons sometimes," said Williams, who had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons entering this season, but gained just 361 yards on 87 carries before he was placed on injured reserve on November 17 with a sprained foot.

"I’d love to be a Carolina Panther. But if they don’t want me here--or not that they don’t want me here--if they have other things that they have to do," said Williams. "Because there’s a lot of stuff that has to be done here, and they’ve got to address those issues."
