Panthers attempting to trade Steve Smith.

635 posts in this topic

Where are all of the people screaming that there was no possible way Smitty could be gone this season? They know who they are.

Yep, I've been say all along. From business stand point it makes 0 sense to pay him this money. Watch, Smitty is gonna retire.

Why would they trade or cut our only viable receiver?  Talk about a hail mary.

Does anybody know what the cap hit is if we cut him?

 

I believe it is $6M....declare him a June 1 cut and it would be $3M this season.  Would buy us $4M space this year.

 

I think this is correct....can someone else confirm?

Trade or not, looks like we saw the last season of Smitty in a Panther uniform last season.

Nobody is taking that salary at his age/production. He means a lot more here than anywhere else. 

 

Not to mention, Boldin fetched a 6th rounder a couple years ago with a similar contract but being a couple years younger. What's Smitty going to get? A 7th? No thanks.

I mean I know it doesn't make sense to pay him, but this should be sad news to all of us here. Smitty played his heart out for this team for 13 seasons and probably will go down as the best Panther in our short history. I'll miss his fire on Sundays.

Regular cut and the cap hit would be $9M

 

June 1st cut and we can save up to $3M.

 

Doubt we are going to cut him. Doesn't make much sense. I think we just want to see what we would get IF we wanted to trade him.
