Former Panthers and Ravens WR Steve Smith has signed a multi-year deal with the NFL Network and will be featured during the network’s Super Bowl coverage.

“I was blessed to have a long and productive playing career on the field but now it’s time to turn my attention to the business of covering the game and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be joining the team at NFL Network,” said Smith. “As the only network with a 100% focus on the sport I love, I was drawn to NFL Network and look forward to joining a team made up of many legends of the game.”
