How about Steve Smith with a star on his helmet?

by Tim MacMahon

My good pal Matt Mosley has a post up on ESPN.com's NFC East blog floating the possibility of the Cowboys trading for Carolina WR Steve Smith.

The line of thinking is that the Panthers are sick of Smith's antics, which most recently included a punch that broke Carolina DB Ken Lucas' nose, and the Cowboys have made it very, very clear that they'd love to have an elite receiver opposite T.O.

OK, so a deal would make sense, right? So what should Jerry give up to get Smith? Start with next year's first-round pick and add at least a piece or two if you want to be realistic.
