On Friday, it was announced that the Carolina Panthers are trading cornerback Daryl Worley to Philadelphia, in exchange for wide receiver, Torrey Smith. Many fans are understandably already skeptical of this latest transaction from now official general manager, Marty Hurney.
While it is undeniable that the Panthers need to get quarterback Cam Newton some offensive weapons, it is unclear that Torrey Smith was the best option, or is going to be able to fill the shoes of WR1. It is yet to be seen what other free agent wide receivers will be getting paid around the league, but Smith comes with a $5 million price tag for the next two years, while Darryl Worley would have cost $650,000 in 2018. For many fans, that is a tough pill to swallow.
