A 2 game suspension might not be the only outcome of this fight:


Per Rotoworld:

There are reportedly "rumblings out of Panthers camp" that the team is fed up with Steve Smith and is considering trading him.

There is reportedly feeling that Smith has become "divisive," and some team players vowed to discipline him themselves if the coaching staff didn't. ESPN's Matt Mosley suggests that Dallas would be interested. We'd guess that many others would too. Smith doesn't have an unmanageable contract and is a top-ten receiver. If dealt, his suspension wouldn't carry over because it was set forth by the Panthers, not the NFL. Still, the odds are heavily against a trade.

Send him to the Patriots. We took care of Dillon and so far Moss is happy, we can handle Smith. :-D

I just read that report also, I think its funny how every media outlet(Schefter, Mort, etc etc) links every big name player that might be traded to Dallas, does anyone else know this? Doesn't matter if there is any truth to it, or if anyone has spoken with a Dallas rep, but it always makes for a good story, and everyone always assumes Dallas will be a big player(Jason Taylor, Deangelo Hall, Boldin, Fitz, CJ, McFadden, etc etc).


I'm pretty sure Dallas is fine going into this year with Sam Hurd picking up the slack on the outside to push Crayton back to the slot, and giving Miles Austin extra reps, not only that, salary cap ramifications, after Dallas has re-signed all these players, I really don't think there is any room.

What player in trouble is Dallas NOT interested in? :-b

I can't see this happening for the reasons mentioned. He doesn't have a big contract and he is a top-ten receiver. There is no way you can get equal value for trading that - it is the ideal scenario that you hope all your players become. On an underachieving team with locker room issues, generally the coach will get the axe before they start shipping out their best players.

This sounds like a nobody ESPN reporter blowing a bunch of hot air to try to be the next John Clayton. eeew. :-o

Two things. Matt Moseley is a former Dallas Star writer I believe. He has an affinity for Dallas. It was also written in his NFC East Blog. It was obviously written in a purely speculative context and shouldn't carry any more weight than if I were to make a post here that I thought they should try and trade Steve Smith. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't mind seeing TO and Steve Smith across from each other, but it just flat out isn't going to happen I don't think. Not going to say for sure because there always is Jerry Jones, but I would be very surprised.
