Smith Gives Praise to Both Cam Newton and Ron Rivera

Receiver Steve Smith describes new Carolina coach Ron Rivera as “a great guy.” Smith calls the decision to draft quarterback Cam Newton No. 1 overall “outstanding” according to the Associated Press.

The four-time Pro Bowl pick still isn’t ready to say he wants to stay with the Panthers, however.

Smith showed up to take batting practice with several of his teammates before a minor league baseball game Monday night, but he remained tightlipped when asked about his uncertain future in Carolina following a 2-14 season.

“When football gets going I’ll be able to evaluate football at that time. But football is not going on,” Smith said, referring to the lockout. “So all the what-ifs and speculation and how I feel is what everyone has — an opinion. I choose to keep my opinion to myself and will continue to take that road.”
