He is on WFNZ right now, giving a very candid interview.

He also has been talking about how exciting learning the new offense has been, and talked again how they did not make it exciting last season, said last season's offense was like "watching paint dry". Said that he was not only limited last season, D-will's playmaking ability was limited by lack of creativity.

Said he believed Naanee could be a number two, also said that he told Naanee he could be the number 1.

Talked about Jimmy and Cam and who should be starting, said that preseason would be vital and that when the "lights come on" some people shrink up and can't preform.

Basically reiterated that he was going to be a Panther for life, whether it was 1-5 more years, said the Panthers might have to tell him to go home one day. Also, said his reasoning for coming back was because his "family is more important for work".

Loved this quote I just heard, "I'm gonna let them haters keep hating, and I'm gonna keep cashing them checks".

@kjridley: Steve Smith just said on 610am the #Panthers tried to get Santonio Holmes or Malcolm Floyd but obviously it didn't work out.

I did not hear the very beginning of the interview, Boo tweeted about the interview, maybe she can fill in what I missed.

more to come...

Some folks seem to forget that they have no idea what all the Front Office is trying to do. Instead they bitch and moan about how we never go after big names. This isn't madden, you cant land everyone you want.

Completely true, while it's disappointing that they didn't land one of them. I'm happy that they at least tried to improve the WR spot by landing a big name there.

^^^^^^ And to add to that, a 2-14 team, with a rookie coach and a rookie QB.

Well this says they tried to address the WR situation but that the situation is not so bad as needing to break the bank out of desperation.

Unless money was not an option and one or both of these guys said no way in hell. Don't bother offering.

But what if you use all your picks? Shirley that would work!

I believe it was partially to show Smitty that there was legitimate effort to bring in a legit #1 or #2.

Exactly, The fact that people think a top flight wide receiver would want to come here with an unproven rookie and a less then steller second year quarterback is hilarious.

"Watching us the last few years was like watching paint dry"

LOLZ

How is Cam's progress coming? What can you tell us?

Cam has done great in practice, but the difference maker will be how he responds in games. That is what Rivera is looking at. We will see who responds well on Saturday night.

What do u think about Nanee?

He knows the offense, he's given me some pointers. Im optimistic and feel like it was a good move. They wanted Santana/Floyd and it didn't work out. Hes a young guy thats hungry and wants to prove he can be a #2. Steve even told him he can take #1 if he wants. He's gonna bring in the other element of experience like Shockey and Olsen and it breeds competition.

What were the reasons why you wanted to come back and play/retire in Carolina?

What I said was Ill always be a Panther, whether 1 yr or 5 yrs from now. When I shut it down, it will be as a Panther. How this is gonna look in 2-3 years, Im not sure. I woke up and said hey, this is where I wanna be. My agent was asking where we were and I felt like the best move for my family was to stay in Charlotte. Im here, still a Panther.

When I said Ill stay, they wanted to know the reason. My family is more important to me than work, and they wanted to stay, and we are happy about that. Im not gonna look back and regret, Im happy with my decision. Just move forward and go out there and run some routes, have fun. Hopefully it turns out well.

There are Smitty haters out there....how is your body doing? Some people say you have nothing left.

There's a reason why you're in the seats and I'm on the field<----lol

Im still employed, so obviously something is still going on. Let the haters keep hating and Ill keep cashin the check. ahahahahaha

love u steve!

Boo said that she thought it was Santana Moss, but I heard Holmes and the other guy from TV said that he heard Holmes too.

It doesn't really matter, the point still remains.
