Ravens Placing CB Jimmy Smith On I.R. & Promoting WR Keenan Reynolds

The Baltimore Ravens announced Friday that they’ve placed CB Jimmy Smith on injured reserve and promote rookie WR Keenan Reynolds to their active roster.

Smith, 28, is a former first-round pick of the Ravens back in 2011. He’s currently in the second year of his five-year, $54.89 million contract that includes $21 million guaranteed and is set to make base salaries of $8.5 million and $9 million over the next two years.

In 2016, Smith appeared in 11 games and recorded 32 tackles, no interceptions and four pass defenses for the Ravens.

Reynolds, 23, was selected with the No. 182 overall pick by the Ravens a few weeks ago. There was some question as to whether he would be allowed to differ service time to play in the NFL but the Naval academy decided that he could defer his military service.

During his four-year college career at Navy, Reynolds threw for 4,001 yards while completing 52.4 percent of his passes to go along with 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions. He also contributed 4,559 yards rushing on 977 attempts (4.7 YPC) to go along with 88 touchdowns.
