I want the best for us and for Smitty, but I just don't see how we could get fair value for him.

He's not in his prime anymore, but he's worth a 3rd IMO, and I don't see any team giving it up for him.

Are you fuging kidding me? Smitty deserves a ring and he sure as hell isn't getting it here. Not only that, we could get some draft picks and start to rebuild for the future.

Oh wait, Rivera is the lame duck GM who is trying to save his job (and failing horribly) and we are the only team to constantly take steps backwards.


Rivera is not acting as GM anymore. Beane is our GM.

Doesn't matter, we can just override the trade if they don't accept it. This is Madden after all, right? right? :cool:


If this were madden we would be running pitch left to Emmitt Smith and going for 2 every time.

Who said anything about Geno. I said see if some team want to give up what Washington did this past draft or more you would have to think about trading Cam.

Im fine if steve wants out but whoever said he will retire or leave as a free agent. You are a moron. He just signed an extension. He may retire at years end, but how the fug is he leaving as a free agent?

This isn't about personal relationships anymore, this team has been too political sense its' founding. I love Smith as much as the next guy (I actually met him in Spartanburg and got to know him a little better) but the team needs to keep him. This team isn't going to get any better drafting mediocre players in the third round (which is the pick that Panthers would likely receive for Smith). Having a fire sale on players rarely works. The best way to rebuild is within then out. Not out then in.

That's a good way to set us back for even more years

You aren't talking about Geno anymore cause he's had his fall from grace.
No you would not, Cam is only in his second year.What the fug are you talking about? Jesus, you're idiot.

Ffs, Smitty has given has entire career to this team. Stew i would trade in a heart beat. Seeing Smitty play for another team would make me puke.


I hate to be reactionary. But I would fire sale the fug out of this roster right now for as many middle round and young players as I could get.

Only people safe would be Cam, Kalil, and Stewy

DG chimes in, and it sounds EXTREMELY unlikely we deal anyone:

http://profootballta...iths-available/

The buzzards circling the carcass of the Carolina Panthers have shifted their gaze from running back DeAngelo Williams to wide receiver Steve Smith.

Jay Glazer of Fox reports teams are calling the Panthers about the possibility of trading for Smith, but the Panthers have turned the inquiries down at this point.

After the firing of general manager Marty Hurney, teams are naturally (and perhaps correctly) perceiving panic and trying to buy pennies on the dollar.

Multiple sources inside the Panthers organization suggest a trade of a star player would be considered unlikely, with any move of substance (i.e. trading Smith or Williams) having to be run past owner Jerry Richardson first.

Head coach Ron Rivera had his Al Haig moment last week, saying the buck stopped with him on personnel moves, but when asked about rumors of a Williams trade Monday, deferred to Brandon Beane, who was Hurney’s right hand man who handled all the organization’s logisitics and is being referred to as an interim GM.

Smith’s one of Richardson’s favorites, and after Smith came off a previous trade demand, was given a contract extension that should carry him to the practical length of his career.
