I was thinking he'd get more, but I guess with his age, and the real lack of leverage, since he's under contract, he got the best he could.

Seems a reasonably sane decision, all things considered. A three-year extension without a massive financial commitment means he gets to continue being the offense for a few more years.

Somewhere, DeAngelo Williams is cackling maniacally.

Yah, it's nuts the deal Williams got. Carolina couldn't think of a better place to spend their dollars?
