Panthers | Steve Smith thinks he has a few more years left

Carolina Panthers WR Steve Smith said he wants to play 15 or 16 seasons. The 33-year-old and 13-year veteran wants to emulate former Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Ronde Barber, who just retired. "Physically, I feel great right now," Smith said. He battled knee injuries for much of last year but reportedly has looked limber and has his motor back.

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not this is offseason noise, Smith is set up for a potentially profitable season if he could be had as a WR3. The Panthers will continue their late-season offensive adjustments that led to a much-improved Cam Newton, so there should be a bigger comfort in the passing game.
