The Carolina Panthers are attempting to trade 34-year-old wide receiver Steve Smith, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
Questions have swirled recently on the verge of free agency regarding Smith’s future in Charlotte.
Smith has played 13 years in the NFL, all with the Panthers. His 2013 performance fell off dramatically.
Given Smith’s age and his $7 million cap number, a trade may prove difficult for Carolina. If the team is unable to trade Smith, cutting him from the team is an option, though his contract has $9 million in dead money if cut this season.
