Panthers cutting running back DeAngelo Williams

The Carolina Panthers are cutting veteran running back DeAngelo Williams. Williams told WBTV he's been released after nine seasons with the team. "We sat down and he told me 'The fact of the matter is we're going to have to release you'," Williams said. "I said you know, 'Why?' and he said, 'because we don't run the ball enough. Just like you said back before the season started, we don't run the ball enough to keep you and both [Jonathan Stewart], so we're going to release you. "I don't feel bitter at all. [Stewart] had the hot hand at the end of the season. He's a great running back, obviously, uh, I don't feel bitter at all. It's a business. And that business comes back and reminds us year after year, whether it be Steve Smith, whether it be Jordan Gross, whether it be myself - it's going to happen to every guy in that locker room, so it doesn't bother me at all." Williams has played nine seasons for the Panthers, but had a thigh injury, an injured ankle and had a broken hand. He rushed for 6,846 yards and 46 touchdowns.
