Don't think that other players aren't looking at how Steve Smith is treated. His "feelings" may cause repercussions throughout the organization and the league as a whole. No need to piss him off unnecessarily, or any player for that matter.
Maybe, Maybe Not. This might just fire Smitty up and sharpen that Chip on his shoulder.
Maybe Gettleman's way of getting one or two more seasons out of one of the best weapons in the NFL.
BATMAN is as far off base as you possible can get. I guess he loves the #1 Troll label. He has sure earned it.
As far as Britt, What a talent and I would bring him in. Sit down with not only the GM and Owner but the RR and all the team captains including Gross. Get their intake and if all think he could make a difference. Maybe the change of scenery is all he needs. I would give VET minimum, no Guarantee and make it incentive laden including keeping his nose clean.
If he fails, he pretty much ends his NFL career. But IMO we have been so snake bite on WRs over the years bring in Britt and giving him an opportunity to change his life would be worth the risk as long as we do as I suggest above. Any trouble don't bother coming in on Monday.
They rate the kid Randle above him now and his production of three tds in two years isnt attractive, but manning....but there oline....but the New York weather.... but he likes Charlotte... Seriously give it a rest already.
My point everyone wants to think he is going to be a savior and that may or may not be the case. He clearly isn't in the same league as Smitty is. Not even close.
Though Smitty might only have a year or two left if I had to choose I would keep Smitty around before I took HIcks over him.
