Steve Smith a Raven!

384 posts in this topic

Glad to have him on board.  Curious to see how much he'll be getting.  He is 35, but doesn't play like he is.  It'll be good to have some fire and intensity out on the field.

Remember Mason at 35? Well Steve Smith was better then mason ever was at any stages of each of their careers

So we have a Torrey Smith, a Jimmy Smith, a Daryl Smith and now a Steve Smith.

 

Hate to be a commentator for our games.

$10.5M with a $3.5M signing bonus.

Not a bad price at all. If we can wrap up a FA C and/or FS and maybe extend Jimmy or Torrey, this will be about as close to an ideal offseason as you can get.

Spread it over 3 years for cap purposes.  This is realistically probably a 2 year deal, but if he wants to play 3 more, his cap hit should be pretty manageable for that last year.

3 years 10.5 mil is a great price for him. Great to have him

 

Definitely a good price.  Who was posting yesterday offering him $7mil a year?  lol!

just over 3 mil a year, low guarantee so an easy out, can't argue, just hope it doesn't stop us picking one of these top receivers early.

We are gearing up for our first round pick to be Martin or Dix

Cant wait to see this offense now. I know Kubes will get the most out of him. Now if we could just get that center situation solved i'll be ecstatic.

steve smith was the best reciever in the league for a couple of years..something neither boldin or mason were. He is also a fitness freak. Great signing but I feel a center is NOW the biggest priority

This is great news! Now we have two Smiths at WR!

How does Steve Smith compare to Boldin today?

We need a Center and Guard or RT and a Free Safety.

He's getting $3.5 a year, that won't kill us.  I just hope Ozzie realizes he still needs to take advantage of this draft class and draft someone in the first two rounds at that position.

Yeah, still hoping for a WR in either of the first two rounds. This does give us a bit of flexibility, and will even allow our new guy to ease himself in for the first couple of years, but I still really want us to pick up a long-term guy this year.

Yep, that's exactly what it is. Just relieves the pressure of needing a 1st round WR .. But in such a deep class, we can find one later on to be mentored/develop.

Boldin is a more go up and grab it guy. Smith is a better route runner and still faster with equal hands. Smith was always more talented then boldin but as of right now boldin might be a bit more useful..depends really..if steve smith is in the best shape he can be he is and always was better then boldin

RTs can be found pretty easily, Center yes - but we're probably waiting until post-draft cuts or for the Browns to spend more, and FS can be had in the draft.

Those are my thoughts. At the same age, Smith is better. Today it's a little closer.
