Chargers general manager A.J. Smith’s oft-cited commitment to the value of character does not rule out the team pursuing wide receiver Steve Smith.

The Carolina Panthers star is reportedly unhappy in Carolina -- even to the point of cleaning out his locker, putting his house on the market and letting it be known that he would like a trade to the Chargers, Oakland Raiders or Baltimore Ravens. The Panther are known to want to part ways with the receiver, who has three times been named an All-Pro but was also suspended two games by Carolina for a training camp altercation with a teammate in 2008.

The Chargers’ interest, according to people with knowledge of the situation, can be characterized as monitoring and wait-and-see. That is comparable to how they went about signing free agent safety Bob Sanders in March, letting other teams woo Sanders before making an offer to a player who wanted to be a Charger.

Teams are not allowed to conduct player business during the ongoing NFL lockout. But the Panthers were known to be shopping Smith prior to the league’s shutdown on March 11.

I still believe the Chargers are looking for a way to get V. Jackson out of town with some compensation..and this could be one of the ways..

We kick em out, and then bring em back after they're too old, ala Moose. Expect to see Peppers back here in a couple of years to retire as a Panther.

For fourth round I eat it and make him sit out. That is nothing in this league. 2nd or higher or proven players in return. Period.

They don't have to listen to any of Smith's commands. But, JR respects Smith a lot so it'll probably be a deal as soon as the first week of resumed NFL season.

Maybe we can get a 4th & a solid player on defense. Rivera must have a few guys he'd like to bring with him.
