There were rumors earlier this offseason that the Panthers were interested in trading RB DeAngelo Williams, but head coach John Fox shot down that talk when he spoke to reporters at the NFL spring meetings this week in Orlando, Fla. We hear Williams is in the team's long-term plans and reports have suggested Carolina will approach the fifth-year veteran about a contract extension before next season. Williams' contract expires after the 2010 campaign, but the threat of a lockout in 2011 could be an obstacle in the two sides' negotiations. RB Jonathan Stewart handled the rushing workload by himself late last season when Williams was out with an injury and had success, but Fox's preference is to have both backs share the load to help keep them fresh. Williams recently spoke out in favor of the time-share, saying splitting carries will extend both of their careers. It doesn't look like Stewart-Williams combination will be broken up anytime soon.
