Though the best news in this piece is the fact Williams wants to retire a Panther (get it done Hurney) I was equally excited to hear this:
"Chud said he has a big role for me and Jonathan to play this year and I’m pretty excited about that," Williams said. "They even have packages where they will put me and Jonathan in at the same time, so it’s going to be pretty cool.
How about a wishbone? lol...more like a stacked I formation I imagine but the possibilities are endless! Add in Cam Newton and we've gone from double to triple trouble! Even better, send Smitty on a fly route with triple trouble on the field!
The twitter word is Williams will meet with the Panthers today to discuss (continue discussion) of a long-term deal. Williams has not been shy about his desire to remain in Carolina:
"I honestly and truly want to stay a Carolina Panther and they’re doing their part of keep me a Carolina Panther," Williams said. "So I’m very excited about that. Carolina gets the first stab at me. If everything looks great, then why entertain other offers? So that’s where we stand right now.
What a role model fro other players on remaining loyal to your drafting club. It's a two way street for sure but when you have one of the best in the league at his position you don't part with them regardless of who you have backing them up. Since money no longer appears to be an issue we need to get this one done.
