    Re: Source: Steve Smith a strong fit for Ravens



    So, people want to sign Steve Smith, sign Owen Daniels, re-sign Jacoby & draft Mike Evans/Jarvis Landry/ODB or whoever in 1st or 2nd rd? Well when/where are all these players supposed to play? I think only two of these options are available so pick 2: sign a vet wr, re-sign JJ12, draft a Wr early, continue to develop and have plans for Marlon Brown. Throw in Torrey and there isn't much space for anything more.

    Would be a great player to have once we draft those WR's. Excellent mentor.

    I'd love to sign him to a 1 or 2 year deal. He fits the kinda WR we need.

    This.

    To me, Smith is a one year rental. You're bringing him in to mentor the other WRs and give the drafted guy time to develop.

    That said, do you want your young, impressionable WR learning from a guy who has such a hot temper? Might be a tough call.

    We kinda saw what just youth brings. I think his mentality and attitude would be a good fit. Obviously short term. I would be ok if the money is right.

    He's a bad ass WR who can still get you 50 catches a year. He'd come here on a veteran's minimum deal because he's getting $3 million in guaranteed salary from Panthers if he's cut.

    Great mentor and yea sometimes it's a good thing when one player calls out another. We need him to be our 4th WR...right player right price right value.

    id sooner say his temper is an issue before calling out teammates. Ed called out teammates while he was here and I really didnt have much issue with it. when I watched him play last year, I cant say i saw a 35 year old but with that said, his numbers were way down and thats mostly because he wasnt asked to be the main guy anymore. I dont think if he came here hed by much more than a 3 or 4 in most cases. Which if thats the case hes not going ot have much pull in the locker room anyway.

    Could bring some toughness and motivation back to a offense that's gotten soft. Can't see a "bad" to this if he's cheap.

    4th WR? Usually the 4th wr plays special teams and with the Ravens possibly running a lot of 2 TE sets, the 4th WR could wind up being the 6th receiving option (7th if Rice rebounds). I'm not sure either side would be good with that.

    What does it matter what he's guaranteed from the Panthers? Why would he turn down the best possible offer from another team to come here for a vet min deal?

    I guess I'm more so saying he could split time with a rookie for those WR3 snaps. Step into the slot on 3rd downs and get catches. Grant it I don't watch the Panthers as religiously as the Ravens, but in the few games I saw him play I didn't think I was watching a 34 year old receiver. Yea his body is catching up to him, but we're asking him to come in and get 50 catches.
