CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- 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.
