Panthers Decide Against Putting a Tag on RB Wiliams

The National Football Post reports that the Panthers have decided against tagging running back DeAngelo Williams, a guy they would like to keep, but at the same time, know if they tag are going to overspend on.

Re-signing the 28-year-old Williams will be imperative to make that happen. The Panthers have decided not to use their franchise tag on the team’s all-time leading rusher. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that today, and it doesn’t come as a surprise when considering Williams was slowed by injuries last season and the team has Stewart and Mike Goodson in place.

Still, Williams is clearly the best rusher, and Carolina can’t continue to let its top players exit.

“We can be exciting again because two seasons ago they had two guys rush for 1,000 yards each,” Rivera said. “We need to get that re-energized and re-focused.”
