Despite being about $10 million over the projected $122 million salary cap, the Panthers plan to keep both running backs DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart, a league source with knowledge of the situation said Saturday. Williams, 29, is due to make $5 million this year and a has a cap figure of $8.2 million. The Panthers believe they can retain Williams at his current numbers. But a restructuring is possible depending on the team's other moves prior to the March 12 start of the league year, the source said.

Isn't this what every team says about high salaried players before March 12?

They can do that, but it means they have to make cuts and make themselves thinner at other positions cause the cap rules say ya cannot keep them all when you are over it.

It is a waste if they do not fix the offensive line and get a big receiver to pair with Smith.
