  Panthers | Torrey Smith set free    Sun Sep 1, 02:41 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith was released Sunday, Sept. 1, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Smith had already taken a pay cut, but that wasn't enough to keep him on the roster to open the season. He should get a call as a street free agent somewhere during the season after injuries thin some wide receiver groups.

  Panthers | Two cleared to practice    Sat Jul 27, 06:54 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) and LB Jermaine Carter (knee) were removed from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list Saturday, July 27, and participated in practice.

Footballguys view: Smith is fighting for a roster spot after taking a pay cut, so getting off of PUP is very important for his prospects. Carter is in a battle for playing time replacing Thomas Davis, who is now with the Chargers.

  Panthers | Three headed to PUP list    Wed Jul 24, 05:34 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee), LB Jermaine Carter (knee) and LB Brandon Chubb (knee) will start training camp on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list, according to general manager Marty Hurney.

Footballguys view: Smith already had to take a pay cut to stay on the roster. If he has trouble getting or staying on the practice field, it might be curtains for him.

  Panthers | Pay cut for Torrey Smith    Thu May 30, 10:18 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith has agreed to take a $2 million pay cut, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Smith was on the books for $5 million in 2019 with zero in dead money. Now he's going to make $2 million as a base salary with another $1 million in bonuses. Smith can still get by a defense in a hurry but likely won't be more than a deep threat for the Panthers offense in 2019.

  Panthers | Torrey Smith will be back    Thu Mar 7, 08:23 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith's option for 2019 has been exercised, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Alrighty then. Smith is due $5 million in 2019, but the Panthers could still eventually cut the veteran receiver with no cap charge. In 11 games last season, Smith caught only 17 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns.

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) could return to action on Sunday, Nov. 25, against the Seattle Seahawks; he has already been ruled out for this week.

Footballguys view: Smith is getting closer to a return but he's out this week against the Lions. That means the Panthers will continue to go to rookie D.J. Moore as their no2 wide receiver opposite Devin Funchess.

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) did not practice Tuesday, Nov. 13, but said his injured knee is feeling a lot stronger and has resumed running.

Footballguys view: The Panthers played last Thursday so there was some thought that Smith would be able to be back by now. He's not, but that doesn't mean he's out in Week 11. Check back on his status later in the week to see if he can practice. Rookie D.J. Moore will continue as the no.2 WR for the Panthers while Smith is out.

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith (knee) will be checked out Monday, Oct. 22, after his knee swelled up from a hard hit.

Footballguys view: Smith has provided some veteran punch to the Panthers WR corps. He's caught nine passes over the last two weeks and Smith is a reliable target for QB Cam Newton on occasion. Smith's injury is not believed to be structural, according to head coach Ron Rivera.

  Panthers | Torrey Smith had big camp    Sun Sep 2, 11:47 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Torrey Smith had the 'best camp of any receiver' on the roster, according to wide receivers coach Lance Taylor.

Footballguys view: Smith will be the starter as the no.2 receiver for the Panthers...at least to begin the regular season. Rookie first-round pick D.J. Moore should win the job eventually. Smith has some 'what the heck' flex value so long as he's the no.2 receiver.

  Panthers | Carolina officially acquires Torrey Smith    Wed Mar 14, 05:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith was officially acquired by the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, March 14, in exchange for CB Daryl Worley.

Footballguys view: The Panthers want Smith to attack opponents deep. He's no longer the player he used to be, as evidenced by the numbers he posted in 2017 (36 catches, 430 yards, two touchdowns).

  Eagles | Philly acquires Daryl Worley    Fri Mar 9, 01:33 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to trade WR Torrey Smith to the Carolina Panthers in exchange for CB Daryl Worley on Friday, March 9.

Footballguys view: A third-round pick out of West Virginia in 2016, Worley has shown some ability as a pro. In 15 games this past season, Worley had 50 solo tackles, 1.0 sack and two interceptions. The Eagles get some much needed depth for their secondary with this move.

The Carolina Panthers agreed to trade CB Daryl Worley to the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for WR Torrey Smith on Friday, March 9.

Footballguys view: The Eagles were likely to just release Smith if he didn't get traded. Smith only caught 36 passes for 430 yards and two touchdowns in 2017. The Panthers should use him to help stretch the field for QB Cam Newton.

  Ravens | Ravens open to reunion with Torrey Smith?    Fri Mar 2, 12:32 AM

The Baltimore Ravens' shopping for a wide receiver would be 'very likely' to include Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith, if his option is declined by the club. A reunion between the two sides is being considered a 'very real possibility.'

Footballguys view: Smith is due $5 million this year with zero remaining in dead money on his deal. The Eagles are likely to move on from the veteran receiver as they're in penny pinching mode after winning the Super Bowl. The Ravens could bring back Smith for a reasonable price, and he could help a WR corps that needs all the help it can get.

  Eagles | Torrey Smith expects to return    Sat Feb 24, 02:41 PM

Philadelphia Eagles WR Torrey Smith said he expects to be back with the Eagles next season even though the team would save $5 million in salary cap space if he is released.

Footballguys view: Smith could return to the Eagles, but there has been rampant speculation that they'll let him go. The Eagles might go into penny pinching mode this offseason after winning the World Championship.
