  • Panthers sign Smith to 3-year extension

    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slu...v=ap&type=lgns

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Receiver Steve Smith agreed to a three-year contract extension with the Carolina Panthers on Tuesday in a deal that will keep him with the team through the 2012 season.

    His agent, Derrick Fox, said he wasn't authorized to release exact figures, but said Smith's new deal makes him among the five highest-paid receivers in the NFL.

    He deserves to be paid as the 2nd best WR. My question; how are they going to pay for Julius Peppers?

      Sounds awkward, care to elaborate?

        Hurney knows his way around the cap about as well as the Redskins front office does. It makes up for the fact that he doesn't know jack about players. Peppers will get an extension either this offseason or next, it's Jordan Gross who should be getting prepared for free agency

          I'm sure that this deal offers some sort of cap relief for the Panthers over the next 2 years, so they will be able to move things around and give Peppers his money. I'm pretty sure that was a major reason why the Panthers extended Smith. Cap cutting move.

            Smitty's old contract was pretty reasonable the next three years, something like 3.5 mil-4.5 mil each year. This was a good faith deal. From what I've heard its 6yrs/45mil spread out evenly throughout (so ~7.5 mil per). Pepp's cap number this upcoming season is like 15mil so if anyone restructuring/extending is going to help, it would be Julius

              My WR rankings go..

              Marvin Harrison
              Steve Smith

              So it seems fitting to me.

                This is good for Steve. he deserves it.

                As far as the best WR in the league goes it's Ocho Cinco for me.

                  Chad Johnson wishes he was as good as Marvin Harrison, or Torry Holt for that matter.

                    Torry Holt?

                    Seriously?

                    Tory Holt?

                      When Chad Johnson has six consecutive seasons of 1,300 yards, tell me. Holt is one year older, and has accomplished much more in his career than Johnson has.

                        Torry Holt is a fantastic WR. He is amazingly consistent and puts up great numbers every year.

                          The 2nd best WR in the NFL now.. IMO.

                            He doesn't have a catchy nickname, that he gave himself. He isn't a blatant self-promoter who thinks he's God's gift to the world. Therefore he must not be as good as Chad "Ocho Cinco" Johnson.
