Former Carolina Panther wide receiver Steve Smith is undeniably one of the greatest players in the team's history.
He spent 13 seasons with the Panthers and was able to tally up 836 receptions, 12,197 receiving yards and 67 touchdowns. In his entire career, he brought in 1,031 receptions, 14,731 receiving yards and 81 touchdowns.
Smith brought an energy to the field that was unmatched, and it was contagious to those around him. Former Panthers quarterback Jake Delhomme believes that Smith is undoubtedly a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
“Let’s be honest,” Delhomme said. “Smitty is a first-ballot, hall-of-famer, there can’t even be any debate about that, and I mostly rode his coattails.”
The Panthers selected four players to enter the team's Hall of Fame, and Smith made the cut. Here's a sneak preview of 'The Hall' episode that willl be released on Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. EST.
The Panthers rightfully gave recognition to one of the baddest wide receivers to ever play the game.
