Panthers attempting to trade Steve Smith.

Per Ian Rappaport on Twitter.

 

The #Panthers are attempting to trade WR Steve Smith, per source. Given his $7M cap number and age (34), seems unlikely.

 

Can't believe this is really going to happen.  All signs point to him being gone......

@evansilva: Sounds like he's going to be cut. RT @RapSheet #Panthers attempting to trade WR Steve Smith. Given $7M cap number& age (34), seems unlikely.

Where are all of the people screaming that there was no possible way Smitty could be gone this season?  They know who they are.

Won't happen.

 

Too old, salary too high, and too many years left on it.

Yep, I've been say all along. From business stand point it makes 0 sense to pay him this money. Watch, Smitty is gonna retire.

Why would they trade or cut our only viable receiver?  Talk about a hail mary.

I believe it is $6M....declare him a June 1 cut and it would be $3M this season.  Would buy us $4M space this year.

 

I think this is correct....can someone else confirm?

Trade or not, looks like we saw the last season of Smitty in a Panther uniform last season.

Nobody is taking that salary at his age/production. He means a lot more here than anywhere else. 

 

Not to mention, Boldin fetched a 6th rounder a couple years ago with a similar contract but being a couple years younger. What's Smitty going to get? A 7th? No thanks.

I mean I know it doesn't make sense to pay him, but this should be sad news to all of us here. Smitty played his heart out for this team for 13 seasons and probably will go down as the best Panther in our short history. I'll miss his fire on Sundays.

Regular cut and the cap hit would be $9M

 

June 1st cut and we can save up to $3M.

 

Doubt we are going to cut him. Doesn't make much sense. I think we just want to see what we would get IF we wanted to trade him.

Kinda seemed more and more likely after seeing all the other vets that were being cut this last week.

Really going to hate watching him play in a different uniform. Have about 20 good games of his downstairs that'll be super tough to watch now. Figured forsure he'd retire a Panther. I hope he signs somewhere good and gets a ring though.

So since Cam has been here, we've drafted him one starter who didn't even play last year, and are now running his best weapon out of town.

I think that the cap space this year is the more important goal....the pick would just be gravy.

 

Not sure what is going to come out of this.  But, it certainly looks like we are willing to move on without him.

Cutting Godfrey makes more sense.
