Sometimes, it’s just time to say goodbye.
It’s often not productive to try and figure out why when someone lets you go. Last week, the Carolina Panthers said goodbye to wide receiver Steve Smith, after 13 seasons. Some say he was a problem in the locker room.
Some critics feel he would have made too much money ($7 million) for a receiver his age (34). His fans say his inner fire and competitive spirit are irreplaceable.
Why he’s gone isn’t important. We now have to balance filling the void and appreciating that he was here in the first place.
