Steve Smith, Ravens agree to 3-year deal

Shortly after the Panthers released veteran receiver Steve Smith, the Ravens were reported to be the favorites to sign him.

Therefore, it's not much of a surprise that Smith reached a three-year deal worth $11.5 million with the Ravens on Friday.

After back-to-back seasons with more than 1,100 receiving yards, Smith finished with only 64 receptions for 745 yards and four touchdowns last year. In addition, Smith's yards-per-reception average dropped from 16.9 over the 2011-2012 seasons to just 11.6 last year.

Even if the 34-year-old receiver has lost a step, the sure-handed receiver is one of the tougher players pound for pound in the league.

By adding (Steve) Smith as a No. 2 receiver to Torrey Smith and going into the season with a healthy Dennis Pitta, the Ravens passing attack gets a boost from last season.
