Steve Smith was officially released by the Carolina Panthers Thursday, and he's ready to make his old team pay.

The 13-year pro has played with the Panthers his whole career, but now he's a free agent looking for a new NFL home. If that new team happens to play at Carolina next year, Smith says he'll be ready. In an interview with WFNZ-AM on Thursday, Smith said:

"I want to make sure that whatever team I go to, they’re going to get the best, in shape 35-year-old guy they can get. If that happens to run through Bank of America Stadium, put your goggles on cause there’s going to be blood and guts everywhere.”
Smith, who will turn 35 in May, is Carolina's all-time franchise leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns. Last season, he caught 64 passes for 745 yards and four touchdowns.
