DeAngelo Williams was not traded last week, and now he’s a part of things again.
Even after being demoted behind Jonathan Stewart, Williams is still contributing. He just ran for a 30-yard touchdown, as the Panthers took a 7-3 lead in the first over the Redskins.
He got around the corner and streaked untouched to the end zone, showing the kind of big-play ability he still has.
The Panthers took calls, and would have moved him if they got the right offer. They didn’t, and are now glad to have him.
If the Panthers coaches are smart, they’ll continue to lean on both backs, as they represent the best chance at any consistent movement. That has not been a consistent approach this season, however.
