It’s no secret that Steve Smith wants out of Carolina. Unknown at this point is his next destination.
According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers are “monitoring” the situation.
Other possible destinations for Smith include the Raiders and the Ravens.
Per Acee, the Panthers quietly were shopping Smith before the March 11 lockout. If/when the lockout ends, they’ll be able to trade him.
As Acee points out, the fact that Smith’s contract calls for $15 million over the next two seasons means that he’ll have to re-do his deal before any trade can happen.
