Carolina Panthers: All indications for the last month have been that the franchise wants to take Cam Newton first in the draft. What if it was a coordinated effort to trick other teams into thinking they wanted the Auburn QB first, when in reality they’d rather slide down a few spots and take Steve Smith’s heir apparent at receiver, AJ Green? Smith’s house has been on the market for five months and the price has been significantly reduced. There are at least five teams in dire need of a QB – San Francisco, Arizona, Buffalo, Minnesota, Washington – but would trade up to grab Newton? [Inside the Panthers]
Big departure from Clipper Land.
Should be a good time.
