One 2014 FA less to deal with.

 

Per @FieldYates, #Ravens have officially exercised fifth-year option on CB Jimmy Smith. It means he's signed through 2015.

I would've liked a longer deal, but I guess this is okay.

It's a placeholder in order to give us some extra time to work out a long term deal since we have Torrey to deal with as well.

As expected.  I'm pretty sure Harbaugh mentioned they would be doing this a while ago.

Was a little worried about not picking his option early.

I'm glad our FO took their due dilignce taking time and not rushing things.

I'm hoping jimmy keep growing. The man is going to be good.

Good news. The beauty of first round picks is that 5th year option. Way less than the franchise tag and gives us another year before he gets seriously paid. And who knows, by 2015 we might have to do something with Webb's contract as well.

Fully expected, but good news nonetheless. Looking forward to him becoming a top notch lockdown corner next season and hopefully we'll make him a Raven for at least the next 5 years.

I'm glad we did this because it makes Jimmy more affordable for another year. This is big because he's going to be a big part of our future plans on defense. He's going to get extended it's just a matter of when

I look forward to seeing him expand on the steps he took last season towards becoming one of the best CBs in the NFL. Now we also have to see if we can get an extension for Torrey Smith done. Torrey was picked one round later in the same draft but is at least as valuable.

I suspect this means we'll focus on Torrey next offseason. Our list of FAs doesn't exactly look like it'll provide the FO with a real headache: Terrence Cody again, Owen Daniels, Pernell McPhee, Jah Reid, Chykie Brown, Tyrod Taylor, Justin Tucker (RFA) are the big ones.

If we can get Torrey locked into a extension, that means we really only have one super critically FA next year and that would be the kicker. Got love our FO.

I'm glad they took the extra year option instead of resigning him to a long term deal. It makes Smith prove that he wasn't a one year wonder.

Good article explaining how good he has really become... http://www.purplerei...it-jimmy-smith 

 

Here's a chart in it showing Jimmy against these top WR's:

Week         Receiver        Thrown At            Receptions      Yds 

9             Josh Gordon           0                            0               0

10               AJ Green             1                            0               0

11         Brandon Marshall      5                            2              16

11           Alshon Jeffery         1                             1               8

13           Antonio Brown         2                             1               2

 

                 Combined              9                             4              26

Apparently, they will pick up the option: http://www.nfl.com/n...rcised-by-49ers

Wow, good call. This chart explains in data what my eyes saw when he played these guys. Very impressive, truthfully, he has become, and is, one of the most underrated defensive players in the game. I believe this is the year he becomes a NFL wide known name.

I think I read somewhere that his option was picked up before any other person in the draft
