Carolina Panthers Sign Running Back DeAngelo Williams To A Five-Year Deal

Much like the interest for Robert Gallery, the Cincinnati Bengals (it's believed) contacted Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams who was (reportedly) deciding between the Denver Broncos and Panthers; the two most serious teams. Now it's most likely that Cincinnati's call was exploratory and that's as far as the discussion went. Reports started surfacing that the Broncos were more interested in security their defensive front and were basically removing themselves from the bidding.

In the end, Williams decided to stay with the Panthers.

Carolina and RB DeAngelo Williams reached agreement on a five-year, $43 million deal that includes $21 million in guaranteed money.less than a minute ago via UberSocial for BlackBerry Favorite Retweet Reply

Now we see why the Bengals weren't likely serious bidders in the DeAngelo Williams sweepstakes. Cincinnati wouldn't pay that much coin on a running back, no matter how many times he's able to pound opposing defenses. We're not exactly sure if we would either for a running back that will be 33 years old when the deal expires -- not that owners have to fulfill their "commitments" like they expect players to.
