NFL Rumors: Steve Smith reportedly gave Panthers GM Dave Gettleman five landing spots

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith is headed out of town. If the Panthers can’t trade Smith, and it looks like they won’t, they’ll release him on Thursday. While discussing a trade, Smith gave the Panthers a list of five potential landing spots he’d prefer.

From Charlotte Observer:

Smith met with Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman last week, and the Panthers have been looking to trade Smith in recent days.

According to another source, Smith gave Gettleman five teams as potential trade partners: Dallas, New England, Baltimore, Tampa Bay and San Diego.

But Smith’s $7 million cap hit this year — combined with his declining production in 2013 — made a trade prohibitive.
