Panthers | Steve Smith does not want Plaxico Burress

Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith said free-agent WR Plaxico Burress (Jets) is an exceptional wide receiver; however, Smith would rather the team focus on giving the younger receivers on the team a chance instead of signing Burress. "We've filled our chairs in the receivers room with already a lot of guys young and older guys. To bring in Plax (and) to let one of those guys go it wouldn't be the coach Rivera way," Smith said. "The guys that are in there, they earned those chairs for right now and allowed them to go through training camp."
