In response to our item from earlier today regarding initial impressions made by Panthers rookie quarterback Jimmy Clausen, we’re told that receiver Steve Smith strongly disputes the notion that he believes Clausen is a “punk.”
We’re told that Smith already has sent a text message to Clausen stating the it’s “all BS.”
Also, Smith will appear on WFNZ tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. ET in Charlotte to tell his side of the story. I’ll be appearing on WFNZ at some point thereafter, during which time I’ll surely say once (or more than once) what I’m about to say right now.
“We stand by our story.”
