One of the greatest offensive players in Carolina Panthers history, Steve Smith had seven seasons as a Panther where he eclipsed the 1,000 Yard mark in Receiving Yards.  His best season was in 2005 where he would win the Wide Receiver’s “Triple Crown” by leading the NFL in Receptions, Receiving Yards and Receiving Touchdowns. 

Finishing off his pro career with three seasons as a Baltimore Raven, Smith would accrue another 1,000 Yard season.  Stat wise, he could get a look as he finished his career 7th in All-Purpose Yards and Receiving Yards.  The five Pro Bowl and two First Team All Pro Selections don’t hurt his case either.
