Are the Carolina Panthers ready to trade wideout Steve Smith?

 

The Carolina Panthers made yet another bold move in the 2011 NFL Draft by acquiring arguably the most talented player in the draft in Heisman Trophy winner and BCS champion quarterback Cam Newton. Even though the Panthers selected quarterback Jimmy Clausen in last year’s draft, this season they felt like taking Newton number one overall was the right move as he was without doubt the best player on the board.

With Cam Newton under center and a completely different kind of offense being run in Carolina, the Panthers may be ready to finally get rid of the underachieving wide receiver Steve Smith. At one point in time, Smith was considered to be arguably the best wideout in the game and arguably the main reason the Panthers would be favored in NFL picks, but now he has started to see his skills decline as he is no longer the best player on the Panthers.

With that being said, the Panthers seem ready to cut their losses and let him go via trade.

Will the Minnesota Vikings go after Vince Young?

The Minnesota Vikings are going to start the beginning of a new era of football without future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre under center. With Favre basically with one foot out of the door, the Vikings will be looking for a new veteran quarterback to take his place and there is no shortage of those kind of quarterbacks around the league right now. This may something you look at when making your NFL picks

Perhaps the most intriguing veteran quarterback of them all that is supposedly available is Vince Young. With his recent dust up with the Tennessee Titans and former head coach Jeff Fisher, the Titans seem ready to move on and are ready to either trade or release the former Texas Longhorn.

With that being said, there will be no shortage of interested teams around the league, but perhaps the most interested could be the Minnesota Vikings. Now that Favre is no longer under center and there is no backup that is ready to take the starting role in Minnesota, Young would be a welcome addition and deadly threat in the backfield alongside arguably the best running back in the game in Adrian Peterson.
