I kinda like this guy, though he might want to lose the hat.
After seeing the massive backlash from fans on his Facebook page the other day, Steve Smith promptly responded with a fairly apologetic post and thanked those who were reasonable. Today, he took aim at the fans who claimed he turned down a huge offer from the Giants:
For those of you saying the giants offered me a 5 yr $35 million contract w/$15 million guaranteed before i got hurt- thats news to me bc if that happened i would have signed it and done back flips on my way to practice !! u should also check out these 2 articles as i think the comments on the bottom of them say a lot.. thx again to those supporting me
The first coherent response?
If I send your Giants jersey back to you, will you unsign it for me?
Considering the fact that the Eagles are giving him $4 million ($2 million guaranteed), you certainly can't blame him for a hypothetical jump at 35/15. The articles he points readers toward (here and here) are from Pro Football Talk, where the comments are mostly critical of the Giants, not Smith.
I would also highly recommend taking a look at some of the fan made Photoshops on his Facebook page…
Yeah, the rivalry just got turned up a notch.
