Steve Smith reaches out to devastated little Panthers fan

- March 17th, 2014

Steve Smith might be the biggest trash talker in the NFL, but he’s also one of the league’s nice guys.

The former face of the Carolina Panthers sought out the family of a young fan named Gavin after a video surfaced that showed the boy bawling upon learning Smith was cut by the team last week.

Smith has since signed a three-year deal with the Baltimore Ravens, but after 13 seasons in Charlotte still has strong ties with the Panthers fanbase.

The 34-year-old, five-time Pro Bowler asked his Twitter followers to help him find Gavin.

Success! Looks like Gavin is in for some swag. Good guy, that Steve Smith.

    The old man needs a smack in the head for perpetuating such online suckageness. The brat lineage in that family will no doubt continue. Bet the old man will get some swag too. I’m still mad Sittler got traded an have decided to go on an all beaver tail diet. Maybe I will get Jays season tickets out of it?
