I wasn't sure where to put this topic since there were no specific threads about Torrey but I just watched his video about the sales pitch and I'm proud that he's part of our organization. His idea was actually a very good one about the UA cologne. The only difference I would make is instead of cologne, maybe a body spray. But he is a bright man and to keep this football related, I hope we waste no time extending him next offseason.

Yea he and Jimmy Smith will be our top priorities next offseason. Both will command pretty lucrative deals. For Torrey something along the lines of the Antonio Brown/Mike Williams contract around $7-8M per year. Unless for some reason his production tanks or he gets injured...but then we just get a bargain deal :)

I'm hoping we extend one or both this summer - I expect Torrey especially to flourish in Kubiak's system, and then we'll have to pay even more next offseason if we don't lock him up soon.

Totally agree to both posts. Would luv to see Torrey extended this summer even if it raises his cap hit now.

Almost certain it won't raise the cap hit now if he's extended. I'm not entirely sure, but I don't think it would.

Depends how the contract is structured.  You could have it come into effect now or next year.

Can we just for a moment recognize that Torrey is a wonderful human being, and that two years ago he lost his brother, and yet he is still pretty undoubtably the brightest spot of this great organization.  His hardships shouldn't be forgotten, along with his great success on and off the field.  I don't think I've seen a Raven in recent history make as great an impact on the community and on the fanbase than this man has.  I would actually be heartbroken to see him go.  I can't wait to see him flourish into a top 5 WR.  Let's be real, if the human cannon that is our quarterback can get his act together (I mean consistency, which is in fact an issue Flacco faces) and Torrey can stay healthy, I see him becoming one of the great receivers of this era.  Maybe I'm being a bit hopeful, but cmon, can't you guys see it too?

The signing bonus with an extension would make his cap number go up this year.

 

If the deal would be anything like Antonio Browns (which I think would be a good starting point), he recived an 8,5 million bonus for a 5 year extension. That would mean Torreys cap number would jump from roughley 1 million to 2,4 m this year, not a steep price to pay to lock him up 5 more years and a relative small bonus proration making it possible for us to part ways with out to much finacial damage should something happen down the raod.

Considering our offense tanked last season, Torrey had a darn good year.  I see an even better year this season.  After that disappointment last season, I have to believe there's a drastic change in the air.

Torrey Smith is definitely a true raven with his play on the field and his conduct off the field. He's got the makings of a lifer for this team .. and provided his growth stays on course he'll have all the Ravens Receiving Records.

What you said right up until you started talking about his play was spot on.

Unless he takes a major step under kubiak he will be a limited receiver that can be easily gameplanned out by playing a cover two man and not letting him get behind you.

Hopefully and actual wideout coach and o coordinator can help him turn into a complete receiver that can run all the routes and doesn't drop as many balls.

Torrey is bright and generous. Truthfully I am a little biased, involved first hand in The Torrey Smith Foundation, but I feel so thankful to be working with such an intelligent and giving young man. 

 

Did you guys hear about his 4th Annual Celebrity All Star B-ball Game coming up?

Torrey may or may not ever be a top flight reciever, but he is a true Raven, on and off the field. I'm proud to have him here, especially after the events of this off-season.

Totally agree. He's just a good guy and doesn't have to try hard to be one.

Couldn't agree more - it comes so naturally for him. It'll be good to see him and some of his teammates together Mar 29 at U of Maryland. These guys always have a good time together. Truly a brotherhood. The way they support each other is admirable.

with more touches via screens, slants, drags, SCREENS Torrey can be a premier playmaker in the league.  Not a top 5 receiver but maybe top 10.
