Report: Panthers and RT Daryl Williams Nowhere Near a New Deal

The Panthers’ contract negotiations with representatives for right tackle Daryl Williams face a “monster gap” financially between the player and the team, Jourdan Rodrigue of the Charlotte Observer reports.

A league source said Tuesday that it would be “shocking” if a contract extension happened for Williams before training camp in July.

Williams, a fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma in 2015, is eligible for an extension before training camp. He started all 16 games for the Panthers last season and played every offensive snap, finishing the year as Pro Football Focus’ highest-rated right tackle and with second-team All-Pro honors.

Williams said last week that he’s focused on staying healthy — and his upcoming vacation in the Dominican Republic.

But he also made it clear that he’d love to stay with the organization.

“I love the Panthers, I love the organization (and) I love Charlotte,” he said. “I hope I can finish the rest of my career here.”
