Mr. Scot

Yasinskas Speculation: "Real Chance" Smith is Traded

198 posts in this topic

Boldin got a 3rd, but he was also younger than Smith with a more recent history of Pro Bowl play. Smith hasn't had a real productive season since '08. Even if that's almost entirely due to QB play, it's still going to hurt his trade value.

I'd be happy if we could get a 3rd for him, but it's more realistic that we get a 4th. Perhaps a conditional 3rd based on his performance would be a good idea.

Oh was it only a 3rd? Thanks for the clarification. Either way, the point remains.

Anything less than 3 first round picks would not be a good idea.

If the Panthers stay young at QB.....Panthers should get rid of him for whatever they can get. Keeping on the team and him being a destructive force and not aiding in the growth of the offense does no one any good.

You can easily argue a lesser caliber vet WR would have done more good for this team than he did last season. Steve Smith has no place on a young offense at this point. Unless a vet QB is going to start this season then dump him for picks.

Just be glad Michael Jordan doesn't own the Panthers. If he did, he would have traded Smitty to the Trail Blazers for a washing machine.

We will get at least a second for steve..I know u guys love the guy and he is a great player.But maybe he soes want to go to a team thats better then the panthers then he might will be able to get a shot at a superBowl. Lets just be real 4 a second it will bw a whilw before we ever be able to get back. We gotta have a QB to get us there. The panthers are showing respect to the guy. If we get Lucky maybe a pretty good team already just need a WR to stretch the field a little may try to throw a first to get him. I mean You never know.

I'd hate to see Smitty leave the Panthers but with everything going on right now, I wouldn't be surprised.

If Smith does stay, there's a good possibility it's in a reduced role, perhaps as a number three. And honestly, that might be for the best.

Much as we all may like him, objectively speaking, he isn't what he once was.

(and basing plans for the season on the idea that he will be is probably a mistake)

There is no way in hell Steve Smith is the #3 WR on the Panthers next year.

He very well might be. Heck, even Dwayne Jarrett had more yards per catch last year :eek:

Guys, are you serious???

Smith was extremely affected by the poor, inconsistent QB play. I'll admit that he "may have lost a step" - but he is still an explosive player and one of the top 8-10 WRS in the league.

You guys gotta admit he played significantly better when Moore was in the game.

Thats what Smith want's, he's been saying for a while now that he wants to become a slot reciever....

As for his trade value, I think he's still worth a late 3rd round pick. I believe that he's still explosive enough to be a go to guy for a team and has a few 1000 yard seasons left in him.

If the CBA is put in place early enough, I wouldn't be surprised to see Smith traded to a team like Greenbay. I only see him getting traded though if the CBA is completed in time for the draft. I think if Carolina is trading him, they want a DP in this years draft.
