Ron Rivera says Steve Smith is looking like he’s 25 years old

According to the Charlotte Observer, Panthers head coach Ron Rivera says wide receiver Steve Smith is looking like younger player on the field.

Ron Rivera said WR Steve Smith has looked like he’s 25 again during OTAs. Rivera said the veteran wideout has been diving for balls–something the coaching staff isn’t wild about. And even though we’re more than three months from Week One, he still shows his frustration when the ball doesn’t come his way.

It’s really amazing how Smith continues to produce at such a high level year after year as he continues to get older.
