CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carolina Panthers all-time leading rusher DeAngelo Williams says he wants to remain with the team despite getting benched earlier this season.

But the seven-year veteran is the first to admit that's not his decision.

Williams says "the ball is not really in my court."

Williams has three years remaining on a five-year contract worth $43 million that included a $16 million signing bonus.

Williams closed the season by setting a franchise record with a career-best 210 yards rushing and two touchdowns in Carolina's 44-38 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Williams started the final five games with Jonathan Stewart out with a high ankle sprain.

"I signed a five-year contract, so that in itself lets you know I want to be back," Williams said as the left the stadium.
