CHARLOTTE — Panthers’ wide receiver Steve Smith expects to finish his career where it began — just like he predicted 11 years ago.
Smith, who turns 33 in May, signed a contract extension Tuesday that will likely keep him in Carolina at least through 2015 and likely for the remainder of his career.

There is also a club option for the 2016 season. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the terms of the deal have not been announced.
