Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that before the start of the 2014 season, he had heard that the Ravens offered WR Torrey Smith a five-year contract worth $35 million with $19 million guaranteed.
- La Canfora doesn’t say whether or not this deal is still on the table for Smith, but he believes a $7 million annual salary is “very fair.“
The receiver market also includes Randall Cobb and Jeremy Maclin, but those two could be under contract before the start of free agency, which would leave Smith as one of, if not, the best available receivers.
Smith, 25, finished up his four-year, $3,389,232 million rookie contract with the Ravens and will now be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.
Over the course of 16 games, Smith caught 49 passes for 767 yards and a career best 11 touchdowns. His yardage totals are done from last year when posted 65 receptions for 1,128 yards receiving.
