He must not be dedicated then. HAven't we heard this somewhere before? hmmmm.
I think it's great he wants to spend more time with his family
Hey he is willing to forfeit $100,000 to spend time with his fam, how often do you hear players doing that
if he was a REAL WR he would sacrifice his family to be a leader for the team.
He would be doing more for his family to set up their futures after he is done with football.
How many millions is he making? If I was in his shoes..id give up the 100k too. If im already making more money than I can spend, then id rather give up the 100k for family time.
It only seems odd to people who make that kind of money, or less, in a year.
I can always find ways to spend money. 100K is maybe a nice car for these guys.
Same way I feel!
Good for Steve Smith and his family. And good for the Panthers as well.
Come on man, Steve Smith is going to have plently of family time.
Football players don't last past 35-40
One thing people seem to forget. You do your job to earn money FOR your family to be comfortable. Out of all the money he gets. $100k is a petty change to getting good family time. Plus, there might have been something we are unaware of that might be better for him to stay home.
Yep we can see doing his training at home with his family has really impacted his performance.
yes but you can't bring back time lost on your kids, especially when they are younger.
He's got all of training camp and the season to be with the team. It's better for him and his family for him to stay home. $100,000 is probably like a dollar to him.
The fact that someone said 100k is a really nice car???? As opposed to your wife and kids.
We always talk down on these guys about being money hungry but he is giving up 100K to make sure his kids are raised properly and ya'll find a reason to rag on him?
I just hope on hope ya'll have no kids.
I salute him! More power to him. It's a freewill decision.
Good for him. I'll never knock a man for putting his family first.
