NFL Free Agency 2014: Panthers WR Steve Smith will not be released today

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Panthers WR will stay on the roster, at least for another day.

According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, WR Steve Smith will not be released by the team today.


Smith has been in the middle of a dispute with the team stemming from GM Dave Gettleman's comments following the scouting combine. Now, it is important to note that just because he is not being released today, does not mean he will not be released or traded tomorrow or later this week. We can be hopeful that this means that both sides are trying to mend relations with one another, however this might likely be Gettleman waiting to see what options remain in free agency after the initial rush of signings.
