The NFL's wave of fever-dream trade action rages on.
Let's start with Smith, who rolls into Carolina with a chance to make an impact for an offense that also boasts Devin Funchess, Russell Shepard and second-year speedster Curtis Samuel at the position. Smith isn't the deep threat he once was, but he gives quarterback Cam Newton an experienced downfield target to play with.
Set to make $5 million in 2018, Smith loomed as an obvious candidate for release in Philly, where the Eagles desperately need to create cap space. The 29-year-old Smith piled up 36 catches for 430 yards and two scores last season before hauling in 13 grabs during the team's glory-filled postseason run.
Smith finished as the 79th ranked player at his position, per Pro Football Focus, but adds starting experience and depth in the secondary.
