FILE:  Carolina Panthers And DeAngelo Williams Agree to Deal

Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams wanted to remain in Charlotte, so he did what any team player would do, he restructured his contract.

Yahoo Sports is reporting that Williams has agreed to restructure his contract in a move that could keep him with the team through the 2015 season.

Williams was entering the third year of a five-year, $43 million deal and was scheduled to earn $5 million with an $8.2 million salary cap number for 2013.

Williams will still receive $5 million this year, but the deal has been restructured in a way that reduces his cap number to $5 million.

The Panthers had a deep running back core that included Johnathan Stewart, 2013 sixth-round pick Kejon Barner and fullback Mike Tolbert, who was second on the team with seven rushing touchdowns in 2012.

The 30-year-old Williams was in danger of possibly being released.
