Oakland Raiders in Play for Steve Smith (Panthers)
The Raiders reportedly are one of two teams that wide receiver Steve Smith wants to get traded to this offseason.
The disgruntled Panther has seen his production decrease with a bad Carolina team that found itself having the worst record in the NFL in 2010.
Oakland is in need of a veteran wide receiver to help out quarterback Jason Campbell and Smith fits the bill.
His other preferred team is reportedly the Chargers. Don’t put it past the Raiders to go after him just so San Diego loses out on a former pro bowler.
It’s plausible the Raiders could make a trade by swapping players instead of picks. Oakland already has traded away its 2012 second round draft choice.
