The Carolina Panthers have over $60 million invested in two running backs, so the question needs to be asked, will they start using them both now?
Carolina for one reason or another allowed all of their top wide receivers to walk.
During an appearance Thursday on NFL Network’s NFL AM, Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams said he was “shocked to learn that his team had lost all of their wide receivers.”
“We lost them all,” Williams said of the Panthers’ receivers. “That was tough, man. I played with Steve for eight years, and I know the chip he has on his shoulder, and he’s a playmaker. I couldn’t believe that we made those moves. Like, I’m still in shock. Not only did we lose him, but Ted Ginn Jr., Brandon LaFell, and [Domenik] Hixon.”
Williams was asked if that puts more pressure on the running backs.
“No, it puts more pressure on our front office because you make these moves, getting rid of four receivers, you’ve got to bring in guys.”
