Theory on why he's been going out of his way over the past week to start to soften his position on being traded:

He never thought the lockout would go on this long, even if a lot of other people did. Now that it has, he's started to read the writing on the wall that there's going to be virtually no way the Panthers will be able to trade him for something of equal value once the lockout ends *even if they wanted to*. The limited timeframe is going to make trades like that extremely difficult to do. So he's either been told by someone in the front office or has just realized on his own that he's probably going to have to be here this season after all.

What do you guys think?

There's been an average of 1 entire post per hour on this board today. People making new threads in June on an NFL board during a lockout is not a bad thing, it's a good thing.

If that would be the case then it will be a lose-lose situation for both. Its not that I dont want Smitty its just better for him and the Panthers to get a trade done. This of course assuming Smitty wants to leave.

I hope he does stay. It will only help us more in the long run

For one: it makes us exponentially more of a threat to opposing defenses

For two: hopefully he has a super ridiculous year and if he still wants to leave he will improve his stock and we'll get a higher pick.

Steve Smith staying only helps us! We'll see how it plays out though. I'm still cautiously optimistic at this point.

The only way steve smith stays, it will be because of his family. If his family wants to stay.

This isn't up to Smith it's probably gonna be his wife's decision since she has "health problems".

What does that even mean though? He'll retire if he's not traded?

Everyone here is speculating...

First off prayers out to his wife

Secondly, nobody here knows what kind of health problems she's going through, nor do they know to the extent of which they are.

For people to assume it will be his wife's call just shows ignorance IMO.
This is EXACTLY why he keeps his mouth shut!!!

Thank God, this is just speculation in the Huddle and not mainstream news.

I'm honestly a Lil disappointed by the lack of class shown throughout this thread.

I think it means that he or she probably wants to move near her family(wherever she's from).


“Right now there's a lot of things on my plate with my wife and her health. My family needs me at home, and that's the most important thing,” Smith said. “Football right now is the last thing on my mind when it comes to some of the things in the last month that we've been dealing with as a family.”


Who knows.....I'm just trying to read between the lines.

Smith has said his wife liked it here and they had all there friends here. TBH I think Smith wants to be gone but his fam may make him stay.

I really hope he has his decision when Football starts, so we can trade him ASAP.

So his wife's health problems may force him to retire no matter what happens? Jesus you guys confused the hell out of me just now.
