Steve Smith: Eagles Wanted Me "Much More" Than Giants

Steve Smith took to his facebook page to explain to Giants fans why he left to sign with their most hated rival.

I will always cherish my time in NY and the super bowl victory.. This was obviously not an easy decision for me or something i ever expected but unfortunately the business aspect proved that the eagles wanted me to be part of their organization MUCH more than the Giants did.. A special thanks to my WR buddies, coach Gilbride, all of u amazing fans on here, and the entire giants organization for drafting me.. Time for a new beginning...

Smith met with the Giants this week and I think it's fair to assume from this quote that the meeting didn't go as well as Smith hoped. He clearly didn't "feel the love" from Giants GM Jerry Reese. So, Howie Roseman was right there to welcome into the City of Brotherly Love.

Not surprisingly, the Giants fans comments on the page are extremely bitter, full of foul language and hatred toward Smith. Any regret he may have had probably will be erased by those classy folks...
