Panthers restructure DeAngelo Williams’ deal

According to Brian MacIntyre of Yahoo! Sports, the Panthers have restructured the deal of DeAngelo Williams, which could keep him in town through 2015.

The move peels $3.2 million off this year’s salary cap, and also cuts into the cash Williams was due to make in future years by $8 million over the 2014 and 2015 seasons. Without that concession, there was a real possibility this would have been his last year in Carolina, and only because the bonus acceleration made him too costly to cut this year.
