Smith will add needed veteran depth to the Ravens, he has been an underrated LB throughout his career but the Jags all-time leading tackler will probably end up starting.



***Update***
It's a 1-year, $1.125 million deal.

Well that escalated quickly. According to Wilson he already signed (1-year deal) and the contract has been processed. McAdoo was cut.

I didn't think the Ravens needed another "thumper" type of ILB but Smith is a bit more than that when he's healthy. As long as McClain isn't starting I'll be happy though. Brown, Smith, McClain, Bynes, and McClellan should round-out the ILB group. It would have been interesting to see the latter two guys get a shot at extended playing time but if the other guys are healthy they're probably relegated to reserve and special teams duties.

Can't hurt. A one year deal, and we see if this guy can earn a roster spot in training camp. Just the same as the deal with Rolando McClain.

I still think Arthur Brown will sew up one of those starting spots, and probably Jameel McClain for the other, with Bynes as a rotational guy behind them. And I'd love to see Bryan Hall get on the roster too.

He's also wearing number 51.

I like the move. If he gets healthy, that contract is a steal
