According to Brian MacIntyre of Yahoo! Sports, the Panthers have restructured the deal of DeAngelo Williams, which keeps him locked up through 2015.
The deal shaves $3.2 million off the 2013 salary cap, Williams was due to make $8 million over the 2014 and 2015 seasons.
‘Williams was entering the third season of a five-year, $43 million contract and was scheduled to earn $5 million in cash with an $8.2 million salary cap number for 2013. Williams will still receive $5 million in cash this year, but the deal has been restructured in a way that reduces his cap number to $5 million, a cap savings of $3.2 million that leaves the team $8.46 million under their adjusted 2013 salary cap number of $126.232 million.’
He was drafted by the Panthers 27th overall in the 2006 NFL Draft.
