He's going to get $3 million of that if they cut him. So you're really only looking at $4 million for next year to keep him.

Captain is gone we are not going to get into a bidding war for him, he is going to ask for top CB money when he really is a nickelback.

Looks like Smitty will be cut as early as today. And Nicks is Gettlemen's top target.

I know they won't save much on the cap this year, but I read that cutting him this year would save $5 million next year so it certainly has financial impact if that's the case. Would you keep smith this year if it meant not being able to resign Cam or Luke next year? I wouldn't they are the faces of the franchise now

Quote:
Report: Panthers GM views WR Steve Smith as a distraction

Sources told Person that Gettleman views Smith as a distraction, and the GM is ready to turn the locker room over to young leaders like Cam Newton and Luke Kuechly. Moreover, Person added, "Smith's fiery personality has made him a fan favorite, but can grate on teammates and coaches."

Smith also seems like he has no problem holding a grudge. Which means that he could look to play for a team that faces the Panthers next season -- the Ravens and Chargers do, and they're both reasonable landing spots for Smith.

What's the Cap saving if they kept this year and cut next year?

Plus the cap is going to be 140 next year and I think we may be able to cut Deangelo.

Also the team might extend Cam on the 1 yr team option.

I'd hate to lose Captain too, but it looks to be inevitable. I'm glad we drafted him and he has been a great Panther throughout his career.

No big loss. Had 7 catches all season....or about $170,000 per catch. Terrible get by Gettlemen.

IDC if he goes either.

Some reports are surfacing that LaFell mat return to the Panthers.

Nicks, Good Draft Pick, and LaFell as starting 3 isn't too bad as long as DG gets that draft pick right.

Nicks' deal rumor is 1 yr. 4.5 million.

Good info. I doubt the market for LaFell is that great, although I read the Pats and Broncos are still interested. It wouldn't surprise me if Smitty landed in Denver.

I think $4.5 million for Nicks is too much. Dude has been injured and had a disappointing season last year. Would make more sense (and be cheaper) to keep Smith for one year. But Hicks was the plan for Gettlemen all along. Cut Smith and bring in his guy. The Gaint's front office and fans couldn't get rid of Nicks quick enough and that should tell us something.

I'm worried about the injury too. We brought in Hixon coming off of an injury and he was never right and we got little use out of him except for the Siants game. If Nicks is the guys, he cannot be a bust or else the season is eff'd.

I'd like to see Smitty with NE or Denver but it sounds like Baltimore is the likely landing spot and that a deal may already be in place. One of the Raven's "inside" guys said expect things to move quickly when Smith is released. Make sense if you think about it since Baltimore is so close and Angie is expecting this summer.

Haven't heard about Baltimore. I think he's going to be in high demand once he's released. Rumor is the Panthers are scared he may end up in Tampa or elsewhere in the division, which is why they are dragging their feet in releasing him...hoping certain teams don't have money left to sign him.

I'd be willing to bet wherever he goes, he'll put up even better numbers than last season.

Sounds like if he lands in NFC South that Tampa would be the place. NO and ATL will not have the $.
