I don't disagree with you , but after all this happened Smith goes a breaks his hand again..We're all just hoping that Smith is ready to go 100% when the season starts.
Thats my concern.
hell or high water, they'll go with who they got unless
....they are young and cheap and will go for a one year deal.
they want the new guys to get involved. they want to build from within. if the player won't help them towards that end they will not be a panther.
three or four weeks into the season and they might change their tune but even then i doubt it. they are out to prove a point this year and TO won't help them do it.
