Smith supposedly wants out...

CHARLOTTE -- Like many NFL players, wide receiver Steve Smith’s future remains in limbo.

If it hadn’t been for the current NFL lockout, Smith might be playing for another team at this point, but since teams aren’t allowed to trade, players he remains a member of the Carolina Panthers — at least for now.

“It’s frustrating,” Smith said of the NFL lockout.

Smith again avoided direct questions Thursday about whether or not he wants to be traded, although sources have repeatedly told Carolina Growl he’s already expressed his desire to be traded to team management.

“It’s on hold because we’re not even allowed to presume there will be football,” Smith said of his future. “That privilege, and I emphasize privilege, has been taken away. There has been some mud-slinging going on, and people have had a chance to see the business aspect of football.”

If he's talking like that, I believe that means he wants out.

I went to the taco eating contest downtown today...yes, a taco eating contest. Smitty was in it against Moose. Anyway, when they introduced Smitty, they said..."Cheer for Smitty so he will stay next year."

When he got up, he showed a sort of disgust in his face and shook his head. It seemed more of a disappointed type expression. But, I can't really read into it too much, but it didn't look too good judging by what I saw.

You never know, he might of been thinking...'I can't believe he just said that', but I wouldn't think so.

We'd be fine with him gone I think. Get a 4th rounder for him and then a vet WR and we'll be good.

Ya I think thats whats gonna happen. I will say thought that if the trade isnt good enough he will just have to deal with it. Hope he would take it like a man and work hard and not whine about it. Oh well.

    • Between Hurd and Dobbs Tennessee had the two most overrated recruits in college football. Kamara was so much better than Hurd
    • He's got the height at 6'4". But I'm looking at arm length and wingspan and looking at the other DEs we've have targeted recently (Hardy, Alexander, Horton, Ealy, Miley, Edwards, Delaire). Delaire is the only one under 34" arms and he seems more like a pass rush specialist. 
    • I see what your saying and I hope that's not the case. I personally don't see KB as a player that's going to lead the league in catches or yards. I see him not as the stereotypical receiver but as a player that can be known as the one who makes the really tough, clutch catches. The dangerous red zone target that a defense has to key on but will still be deficult to stop. The guy that makes the hard fought 1st down catch on 3rd and long when we really need it late in the game. Dependable.  I believe he has the potential to be that guy. I hope at least.
