Will The Recently Released Steve Smith Land In Baltimore With The Ravens?

On Thursday, the Carolina Panthers released wide receiver Steve Smith in a move that has been anticipated.

Smith, a five-time Pro Bowler, will be 35 in May and is coming off of a season that included him catching just 64 passes for 745 yards and four touchdowns. His 11.6 yards per catch average was the lowest it’s been since 2007.

While Smith is undersized, he still should be good for 60 catches next season and several believe he would be a fit with the Baltimore Ravens, and would team up nicely with Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones.

Another team that could be interested in Smith is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he would likely compliment Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams well.

Smith was scheduled to make $4 million in 2014 and by cutting him, the Panthers still have to pay him $3 million that was guaranteed him because of option bonus language in his contract.

Smith is as scrappy as they come and while he might only have a year or two left in him, he should land with another team quickly.

I am, I'm me. 40 something, retired and a life long Steelers fan.

    I think E.Sanders might end up in Tampa Bay

  • Steve

    New England would love to get Smith. He is a tough, gritty guy who Belichick would bring out the best in. Would be another target for Brady.

    I think anyone that can catch teh ball, the pats would be exctied about. Their skill positions suck. They have nobody now that Blount is a FA.

  • Steve

    Belichick will reload,, he always does and they have mucho denaro to bring em in, unlike da Steelers.

    I feel like Smith would look great as a Steeler for 1 year

    I hope not. Steve is a tough SOB in the same way as Hines was except he is more vocal and not quite as mature.

    I remember when Steven Davis( a big back) came to Carolina from Washington I think? He said something to Smith and Smith dropped him with one punch and broke his nose. If Steve says he is gonna punch you in the mouth if he sees you off the field, he isn’t selling wolf tickets. lol

    I would love to see him play one year with us.
