That being said, I hope he stays.

Jpjr, IF is Smitty was 1/4 as bad as you make him out to be he would have been gone years ago. Do you think JR and Smitty would have the relationship they do if he was the BAD APPLE you make him out to be. What is more appalling is the BANDWAGON haters that join you in your warped opinion of Steve Smith.
Smitty will not be traded for less than a 2nd or 3rd. I don't give a fly Fug if he is 32 or 40. The man is still a potent WR. He has two years on his contract and will play 100% if we don't trade him. We will NOT trade him without a solid veteran for our young receiving corps.
I think Newton has the charisma to get Smitty to stay. I see the Panthers turning this program around and in a hurry with Newton. Once Smith scores a TD after Newton has scrambled he will see the light. Watch and See
Jpjr you may dislike Smith and that is your opinion but to believe he is remotely similiar to Albert Haynesworth or T.O. or Burress or Even Holmes is ludacris.

If you don't think the Panthers would unload Smith for his salary you are... crazy? Cleaned out locker. Sold house. Flag football. Absent for workouts. Terrible attitude... unloading that contract is a steal for a young team with a young coach that is looking to unload legacy issues.
The Panthers GM could say bye-bye to his job if he did that and he probably wouldn't work in the NFL again. You don't release a player with trade value unless there are extenuating circumstances. And you can't trade SS to another team without compensation. It is against the CBA.
