STEVE SMITH
Wide receiver, New York Giants
2010 stats:
48 receptions, 529 yards, 3 TDs
Smith was placed on IR in December after injuring cartilage in his left knee. He underwent surgery, completed rehab and is ready to return. He had a great rapport with Eli Manning and established himself as the No. 1 receiver for the Giants before his injury. He's only one year removed from a season where he caught 107 balls for 1,220 yards and scored seven touchdowns.

Apparently Steve Smith isn't getting a lot of well-wishers on his Facebook page since signing with the Eagles. I'll let you go read the comments yourself, but here is a statement he posted a little after 10 a.m. this morning:

"Instead of cursing at me and wishing my family and my knee harm, i wish you could understand that i truly wanted to stay here but that the giants DIDN'T want me here unfortunately.. thank you to my true fans for standing by me and offering your support during this time... i truly appreciate it and will miss you all, even the haters bc i know ure great people deep down and are saying what u are just because youre such passionate fans"
