And who's leaving Carolina because their GM sees him as a distraction? And you think everybody else is crazy????
Yeah if he's going to help the team hell yeah. Let's get these straight I love Colston but are really going say that you wouldn't Smith over Colston than your just a hater because he beat the Saints over the years. That guy is a better player than Colston all Colston have over him is high. I don't care that he's 35 he's faster and will have more of a impact on this team then Colston. Stop hating because he burnt the Saints over the years.

And age, and lower salary, and a better attitude, and is proven... You sign Smith at the age of 35 and get at the most 2 years from him and will have to over-pay because he will be looking for his last pay-day... And on top of that, you can't be sure how he will perform once he gets that pay-day(locker-room cancer)...

Shockey and Turley were alphas with stainless balls, Steve Smith is a punk.

Re: STEVE SMITH

Y'all are flat out tripping ... Smith is one of the greatest receivers of the last decade or more ! Colstons good but you'll never mistake him for an elite receiver.

Our pass catchers and smith are cut from two very different cloths. Our Recivers depend on Drew beating coverage with laser accurate throws which is why they're non existent to a team with decent dbs. Because there is no seperation.

Smith Beats coverage in his sleep ... Oh and Smith managed to do something not even Jimmy could do ... Beat Richard Sherman again and again !

Like I said we sign him and in 2 weeks he's easily our best Receiver and if we drafted Cooks or OBJ that's who I would want to rub off on them for years to come.

He fits what we need in the slot as a guy who can definitively beat the oppositions best corner

He fits what style we are transitioning to , physical grind it out smash mouth football.

His attitude is perfect for what we are transforming the offense into. Play with a chip on your shoulder

Well that would kill us more thn anything else
Cutting Colston saves a whole $1.8ml

Colston was drafted in 2006 since then:

Colston 64% catch percentage 63 touchdowns 435 first downs.
Smith 56% catch percentage 45 touchdowns 366 first downs.

Smith does have 100 more yards but it took 90 more targets to get there.

PFF Wide receiver ratings have Colston over Smith 5 of the 7 years that they've been ranking.

Smith doesn't play out of the Slot much and Colston's been one of the top slot receivers in the league over the last 5 years.

I'd take Colston over Smith every day of the week.

Course, I may just be tripping.

Re: STEVE SMITH

I'm not "hating." I just hate SS because he's a mouthy show off reciever who acts like a damn child. No thanks. I'd rather the receiver who gets up every day and wants to play. Not the guy throwing a fit on the sideline because he "ain't getting the ball."

Ick. The thought makes me sick. And I have no idea why anyone would want him over Colston.

Who's trippin? Not me.

Hell let's give Terrell Owens a shot while we're at it.

NO THANKS.

Re: STEVE SMITH

Mr. Utah has iced this cake quite nicely.

As pointed out, it's "trippin", not "tripping", one is done with your luggage and the other with your favorite paper or shroom.

Fist bump me?
