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 yearâ€™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.
