"After much thought and a long evaluation of our football operations, I have made a decision to relieve Dave Gettleman of his duties as general manager", said Carolina Panthers owner/founder Jerry Richardson on Monday (via Panthers.com). As part of Williams' release, he had to wait until just after the start of the 2015 league year to officially become an unrestricted free agent as the Panthers wanted to designate him as a post June 1 cut in order to stretch out his dead money over two years.

Gettleman parted ways with several of Carolina's all-time best players in wide receiver Steve Smith Sr., running back DeAngelo Williams and cornerback Josh Norman.

The Bills hired Brandon Beane as their new general manager this past May. Last season the team went 6-10 and finished last in the NFC South.

"After much thought and a long evaluation of our football operations, I have chose to relieve Dave Gettleman of his duties as general manager", Richardson said.

Finally, DeAngelo Williams held absolutely nothing back in his criticism of Gettleman while also opening up the possibility of a return to the team with which he spent the first nine years of his National Football League career.

Smith, arguably the franchise's most popular player, never took the move well. Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen is also hopeful of an extension, although he has two years left on his current deal.
