A person familiar with the situation says Panthers five-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Steve Smith has agreed to a contract extension that will likely keep him with Carolina for the remainder of his NFL career. The new contract runs through the 2015 season, the person told The Associated Press Tuesday, April 10, 2012, on condition of anonymity because the team has not yet announced the deal.
