I doubt we do. Team is waiting to see what the market will offer him just like they did last year. I bet if Captain gets a decent offer the team will not match.

Declining numbers....lol. And it has little to do with money.

Gettlemen wants to move the team in a new direction....new leader in the locker room, etc. They know they are going to have to back up the Brinks Truck to sign Cam after this season, so they are basically saying "Okay Cam, this is your team". Cam and Smitty did not get along, so Smitty is being shown the door.

Funny thing is Cam's passing numbers might go down this year with the crappier o-line and nobody to catch the ball. So maybe this is all of ploy by Gettlemen to get Cam for cheaper.....lol.

We better get him CHEAP.

And I've thought all along it was either Nicks or Rice....that Gettlemen wasn't stupid enough to let go of Smith without having a replacement in mind.

What concerns me is Hicks was rarely double-teamed last season since teams were doubling up on Cruz.

So, you think we could hang onto Smitty at a relatively similar price as what Nicks would cost?

Also, yes...declining numbers. Smitty ain't getting any younger.

I think he would rather play with Cam than Eli.
Seems more like his "style"

Keep Smith, draft a WR in the 1st or 2nd round and have Smith mentor him.

I said it before, Cam didn't throw to Smith a lot last year. Smith complained about it on the local radio.

You're talking about the player who has been the heart and soul of this panthers team fro years now. Hakeem Nicks is NOT Steve Smith for so many reasons that go beyond just running routes.

I'm not saying I support the move of letting Smitty go- just trying to look at the other side.

As another person already referenced in this thread; NFL teams do not pay players based on past performance, but rather future "projected" performance.

And, as we all know- history is not a predictor of future performance.
