Torrey Smith hopes Ravens don’t add veteran receiver

Divisional Playoffs - Baltimore Ravens v Denver Broncos Getty Images

At various points since trading Anquan Boldin to the 49ers, Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome has said that the team could use a veteran wide receiver on the roster.

The players currently on the team’s depth chart hope that doesn’t wind up happening. Wide receiver Torrey Smith explained that the team’s receivers hope to prove to Newsome that there’s no need to look outside the organization because the players on hand can handle the job.

“I think that obviously our goal is to try to make sure that Ozzie doesn’t have to go out there and get another vet and I think we take that as kind of a challenge for us,” Smith said, via Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. “We know this offense. We’re looking forward to the challenge. We’re all getting better every day. None of that matters if we don’t do it between the lines, but I think we’re heading on the right path.”

From the looks of things, they’ll get every chance to prove their value to Newsome and the Ravens since the team’s made no actual moves toward signing a veteran wideout. That seems likely to continue, at least through minicamp, and that means players like Deonte Thompson, Tandon Doss and LeQuan Williams will have the opportunity to prove they are capable of playing alongside Smith and Jacoby Jones.

If they fail to show they’re up to the task, the Ravens could look into free agents like Brandon Lloyd and Devery Henderson, but it certainly seems the Ravens’ first choice is to keep things in house.

    I would love to have Devery Henderson stretching the field with Flacco’s cannon. That would be indefensible for a 3rd corner and possibly take the Ravens offense to a scary level.

    Ravens Vs Falcons Superbowl

    Flacco Vs Ryan for the title of who was the best QB to come out of that draft and we already know who is that guy….

    BIG JOE!

    Ravens lost their best WR in the offseason. That midget Rice is washed up, and now they have no passing attack. They might be able to get some wins next year against the NFC teams.

  3. crownofthehelmet says: May 31, 2013 11:00 AM

    Only an insecure, me-first player wouldn’t want to add any piece that could make his team better. Go play baseball Torrey.

  4. whysomanylosers says: May 31, 2013 11:12 AM

    Oz…. buddy… you just traded one of the best veterans receivers out there (for a 6th round pick) only because you slammed your team into salary cap hell.
    “Genius” they say. Ha!

  5. rocketcrab says: May 31, 2013 11:15 AM

    I would think that the Ravens might look to have Jacoby Jones more as a return man and limit his reps at WR. I think he’s more valuable running back kicks, but what do I know?

  6. bigbenh8tr says: May 31, 2013 11:17 AM

    Because Torrey Smith thinks he’s a #1 WR? hahahahahahahahahahahah

  7. nebster21 says: May 31, 2013 11:17 AM

    Of course he does not want veteran recievers brought in. He might lose his job. This could have been sumerized in the one liners.

    Torrey Smith does not want to lose his job. With a link that goes to the article where Ozzie Newsome says he wants to bring in a vet WR.

    I still don’t understand why Brandon Lloyd doesn’t have a job unless he is just a total cancer in the locker room.

  10. TylerHills says: May 31, 2013 11:28 AM

    Ravens best receivers:
    1) Torrey Smith
    2) Jacoby Jones
    3) Tommy Streeter
    4) Everyone Else

    Streeter is going to be a breakout player this year for the Ravens. I know I am keeping tabs on him.

  11. rhamrhoddy says: May 31, 2013 11:28 AM

    There is probably 100 other receivers in the league that feel the same way

  12. poridge1214 says: May 31, 2013 11:32 AM

    It’s actually nice to see the team’s top WR show confidence in the other guys’ ability to step up and fill in.

  13. psuorioles says: May 31, 2013 11:32 AM

    Was a big fan of Deonte Thompson during the preseason games last season…

    If the NFL decides to cut down on preseason games, it takes away chances for players like Thompson to make a name for themselves. The best way to solve the problem is just just charge less for those games, which we all know the NFL won’t do. The NFL itself will one day be the reason it loses popularity.

  14. SAV says: May 31, 2013 11:32 AM

    Writing down the names of all the Ravens haters…ya’ll don’t understand the game of football….its Ravens checkmate for the last 5 years and its only getting harder on your pathetic teams HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  15. psuorioles says: May 31, 2013 11:34 AM

    SAV – the Ravens don’t need Henderson to stretch the field for Flacco, they already have that guy in Smith… they need somebody that can go over the middle and that is where Pitta comes into play. Expect for him to have a huge season…

  16. iamedreed says: May 31, 2013 11:36 AM

    i guarantee champ bailey thinks torrey smith is a #1 WR

    anyone who watched the ravens games last year saw that teams started rolling there coverage towards torrey at the end of last year. In fact it all started with the loss at home when pittsburgh had some success with it. I look for him to make a big jump this year and move into the top 10 WR in the league

  17. dragus84 says: May 31, 2013 11:43 AM

    Jump Ball Joe sure hopes they get another receiver in who is as strong as Q.

    When he throws up those 50/50 balls he’s either gonna need the DB and safety to fall down and/or completely blow coverage a la Denver Broncos or he’s gonna be in trouble.

    The only guy who throws up more prayers than Flacco is Tebow.

    Flacco’s cap hit in 2013 is only 6.8 million, and Boldin’s contract was set to expire after 2013. The Boldin trade had nothing to do with the Flacco contract.

    Love all the haters on here… “rice is washed up”??? ever heard of 4th and 29? Rice is the most dynamic open field runner in the league!!! Crown, are you really talking about “me first” players on the Ravens? Take a look at your roster and redirect your comment. Somanylosers, do you realize Boldin only had 4 tds in the regular season? Oz was able to sign 4 veterans with the money he saved by offloading boldin, don’t ever question his greatness. And lastly, when was the last time any of your teams won the Superbowl??? Come talk to me again when you’re polishing your new ring…

  20. daysend564 says: May 31, 2013 11:51 AM

    Smith better hope they bring in somebody. Going to be difficult sledding going against 2x-3x teams since nobody else on the roster is viable. Jones is the closest but he’s no better than a returner and #3 returner. You don’t want to take Jones the returner from the game.

  21. sb35and47champs says: May 31, 2013 11:57 AM

    dragus84 – since 2009 only 2 QB’s in the league have thrown 20 or more TD’s, 12 or less INT’s, and 3,600+ yards every year: Flacco and Rogers. Throwing up “50/50″ balls would make that TD/INT ration impossible.

    I guess if you get your SB win it can be worth it, but the Ravens wont be relevant for another 10 years (if they are lucky). Fan’s will be calling for Ozzie’s head long before then.

    I guess that all the mutton head Steeler fans feel compelled to comment on Ravens’ posts because there isn’t really anything good to say about their homeboys. Hey guys! The Ravens won the Superbowl. There haven’t been any games since then so they are still the greatest. The Steelers went 8 -8 and they are still mediocre. If you are so sure about your predictions, please place a large bet on your team. Vegas is just waiting for your money. Until you put your money where your mouth is, it is just all bombast.

  26. barbasol11111111 says: May 31, 2013 12:09 PM

    Flacco threw a lot of “jump balls” to boldin quite simply because boldin can’t beat man coverage. However, if you throw him open he can fight for the ball just as well as any wr in the league. It should be noted that this takes a lot of touch and finesse on the qbs part to put it where it needs to be (and this is why I don’t think boldin will be as effective with the 49ers).

    Anyway, I think some people have decided to pretend Boldin was an all pro last year simply because they can’t get over the fact that flacco is better than they thought he was, jmo

  29. annapterp says: May 31, 2013 12:32 PM

    It was known BEFORE last season began that Boldin would be gone at the end of the season. He had such a great end of the season and playoff run that Oz tried to get him to restructure. Boldin chose not to so he was traded for anything since he was going to be cut anyway. Truth is, Boldin does not get separation but doesn’t need much cause he’s a beast fighting for the ball. A QB needs to learn to trust him cuz most times he’s not open but just wins the ball. Its just the type of receiver he is. The lack of actual football knowledge by some posters is hilarious.

  30. putyournameonit says: May 31, 2013 12:36 PM

    Well yeah, he’s not a #1 WR so he is afraid he will lose that status to a vet.

  31. SAV says: May 31, 2013 12:37 PM

    Psuorioles-the Ravens have everything they need in camp right now but if Torrey goes down with an injury we need another deep threat. Think forward pal. Devery Hendo and Flacco could provide many fits for defenders. Flacco needs as many deep outs as possible because they have Rice, Pitta, Leach, and Dickson let alone Doss and Deonte and Streeter for the short to mid game. Plus I am in love with the new TE/FB they drafted.

    the sadness of steeler fans as they know they are about to embark on another season od mediocrity almost makes you feel sorry for them. they only wish they had a roster half as good as the ravens. from being tebowed to going 8 and 8 with no hope forthcoming…so sad indeed

  34. ridingwithnohandlebars says: May 31, 2013 1:06 PM

    I sometimes feel like there would be less silly criticism if the Ravens had cut Boldin and gotten nothing instead of trading him for only a 6th round pick.

  35. clssylssy says: May 31, 2013 1:15 PM

    I agree with Torrey who is going to do just fine with Jacoby Jones and the others on the roster. Ravens have other more pressing areas of need however, it was still pretty stupid to get rid of Boldin when the team is going to be moving into a retooling of the defense season with a SB hangover to boot. I would see more of a need to replace Ed Reed that worry about adding anymore WRs.
    In Ozzie/Harbaugh we trust!

  36. psuorioles says: May 31, 2013 1:23 PM

    SAV- anyway you slice it, Henderson would be a waste of a roster spot… I’m sure you remember a couple TD’s Flacco threw to Jacoby in the playoffs… Ravens have plenty of deep threats; they need to fill the intermediate routes.

    Total lack of understanding about what’s gone down during Baltimore’s offseason. Firesale my ass. It’s a change in strategy. The defense, which everybody on the outside thinks carried the team for some truly uninformed reason, was completely average last season.

    Firesale? You really think Ellerbe was worth what MIAMI (seriously, Miami?) paid? And the Cleveland Browns, known across the league for fine roster decisions, gave Kruger what he’s worth? Reed is already back under the knife on his way to Houston. Boldin is the only truly controversial decision.

    Not relevant for another 10 years? It’ll be that long before they have another losing season.

  38. evrybdyhas1 says: May 31, 2013 2:07 PM

    This team knows its talent and that it has a bunch of large and fast receivers such as Laquan Williams, David Reed, Streeter, Doss, Melette, Deonte Thompson and Pitta and Fustenburg can line up at the position. The Ravens seem to know when to go out with the old and in with the new. Remember Adalious Thomas, Bart Scott, Jamal Lewis, etc, etc.

    Let’s get something straight,

    You guys won one super bowl in 13 years and you talk like your the end all to be all. Well, last I checked, we’ve been in 3 Super Bowls in the last 7 years and won two of them. And if you think that Flacco isn’t going to miss Boldin then you really don’t know anything about Football. Boldin made Flacco look good. Flacco is the same cornball he always was. The same cornball that we had no problem with the last time we saw him. When Flacco has a sub par year this year, your going to be wondering why..and it starts with the subtraction of Boldin.

    And …..you guys will occupy your natural position in the conference when the Broncos spank you up in the season opener. You’ve lost a ton of starters and you actually think that your just going to plug in guys and have that same chemistry??? Boy I can’t wait until the season starts because you will quickly learn that what you did last season was a fluke. And we won’t see the Ravens for another 13 years. LOL

    Your fact checking needs checking. Ravens have won 2 SBs in last 13 years (2001 and 2013). Same as the Steelers.

    Some of the fans talk trash, but admit it, no more than some Steeler fans. And “we”? Nice to hear you were a member of the Steelers team that won those SBs.

  43. ppdoc13 says: May 31, 2013 3:16 PM

    @realdealsteel – nice selective math. That must be the “new math.” The raven won in 2001 and 2013 and came into existence in the 96 – 97 season. The have made the playoffs half the years they have been in the league. The Squealers had a 35 year run of mediocrity that is almost unparalleled in NFL history.

    The ravens have been as successful as any new team in any major league sport. Please child, don’t try to compare the franchises. It isn’t valid. I do not begrudge the steelers their 6 lombardi’s, don’t begrudge my ravens their success. It is one of the better success stories in the hx of the NFL.

    As far as this year, it will be interesting, the ravens did a very credible job of replacing their missing parts with the exception of “Q”, but they have good depth and some good potential in the WR corps.

    If I were you, I would be less worried about the ravens and more worried about seeing Ben complete an entire season without injury real or trumped up.

  44. ninetysixer says: May 31, 2013 3:26 PM

    they already have 2 guys to stretch the field in Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones, there is no need to add a guy like Henderson. They need another middle/underneath guy to complement Pitta. Knowing Ozzie, he will wait until training camp, see if any of the young guys can step up and if not, will trade for another posession/yac guy

  45. ninetysixer says: May 31, 2013 3:28 PM

    @realdealsteel

    wow, you beat a Seahawks team in one of the worst officiated games in SB history and then you needed a last minute drive to beat a 9-7 Cardinals team…..wow! call me jealous!

  46. flaccotoboldin says: May 31, 2013 3:47 PM

    First, the Ravens did “get rid” of Anquan straight up – they asked him to take a 2 million pay cut.

    He didn’t want to because he viewed his choices as a) 1 year, 6 million, or b) unrestricted free agency after a good postseason

    Ozzie showed him option c) trade. Its going to work out for Q because without Crabtree, the cupboard is looking bare, but if that hadn’t happened, he was goign to be the #2 or #3 receiver on a team that is run heavy with a less than perfectly accurate QB.

    In any case, this all happened because of money.

    You don’t get rid of Q to pick up another expensive veteran. I dont see them picking anyone up barring injury or epic failure.

    FWIW, the Q trade freed up space used on Dummervil. And for all the talk of the Flacco deal, his deal is structured plenty well enough for them to maneuver.

    I know that this absolutely NOTHING to do with the Ravens WR situation, but you opened this door so I guess I’ll just have to go through it. Dude, let me ask you – do you have any civic pride? You do realize why the Baltimore Colts were named the Colts, right? No? I should have figured. Because of the history of horse breeding and racing in the state of Maryland. And Indiana and the city of Indianapolis doesn’t. The name 0f your other pro team, the Pacers, makes perfect sense. The Indianapolis 500. I get it. It’s perfect!! So, why don’t you and your brethren petition Jimmy, if he’s not too busy Tweeting, to change the name to something that identifies with your state or region? Or are we to accept the fact that you have no state pride?

    Lmao, talk about a delusional twerp? You embody why the Ravens fanbase is justifiably JOKE.

    You’re seriously going to sit there with the Ravens tags still on your jersey and compare football franchises?

    Those first 35 years you mention the Steelers struggling in were the years where football was in its INFANCY. A time where baseball ruled the world and football could BARELY field one football team.

    Talk about a success story? Pittsburgh stuck together and (’til this day) owned by one family as they cut their way through harsh times for the city. They scratched, clawed and made it to the big time after years of struggle to keep the team together.

    Then, the NFL boom hit in the merger and the Free Agency era in football continued, Pittsburgh survived it all. After those tough first 35 years (where you can’t even appreciate since you were probably not even a thought by you parents) the Steelers worked their way to one of the most traditional franchise’s in all the league and one of the most storied and modeled. What a feat!

    What has Baltimore done? Their owner skimped out on them and went on a hiatus while the Steelers put in the dirty work and stayed together. They then STOLE a franchise from them (Browns) and fans claim they want to compare franchises? STUFF IT, BALTY FANS! Your franchise can’t begin to come even close to SNIFFIN’ our jockstraps.

    Oh yeah, another thing. The Steelers were labeled “bad” in the 80’s but still managed to find their way to Conference Title games. Mediocre 90’s? Are you blind? Countless number of divisional championships, 3 AFC Title appearances, 1 Super Bowl appearance. Since the merger, the Steelers are the NFL’s most punishing franchise’s and OWN in the overall league W-L record.

    Go home Baltimore. You may have had recent success, but to compare yourself to the Steelers franchise is downright pitiful, awful and hilarious!

    Throughout the test of time, the Ravens will be just another johnny-come-lately franchise that never amounted to anything but a short-term rival to a team like the Steelers! Enjoy your Lombardi while I watch your team be GUTTED this season! as you watch the Steelers dominate once more.

    Cheers.

    your interpretation of football history is pathetic. i love the arguement that who cares about football history when the steelers were irrelevant. there was a league long before the steelers were good and to dismiss is it an insult to lambeau, halas, mara and the rest of the people who built the nfl. and while the steelers were still irrelevant baltimore came along and put the nfl on the map in the 58 championship against the giants. and yes baltimore lost the colts and modell moved his team here. not going to have a discussion with you about that history because you clearly know nothing about it. and since 96 the ravens have been one of the best most consistent franchises in the league, winning as many lombardis as the steelers. johnny come lately franchise…dont kid yourself son

    I am so glad the Steelers are in our division. Because without them we wouldn’t have Steeler fans to keep us amused in Baltimore. I want talk football strategy 24X7, and I guess all the talk about the Glory Years at least is humorous if not sadly pathetic. It is kind of like that hot high school prom date that is now the old smoking hag. I can’t look past the Offensive Line….aaaa…I mean the crows feet.

    If you really think about it, the success enjoyed by the Ravens as a franchise has given Steeler “fans” an inferiority complex, because they only talk about the part of Steelers history that isn’t a complete embarrassment.

    They downplay the fact that it took nearly 40 years to make their first playoff appearance, and choose to ignore that without the Eagles and Cardinals keeping them afloat, the franchise would have disappeared during the Truman administration.

    Football being in it’s infancy has nothing to do with being the NFL’s equivalent of a homecoming game every week for four decades, because it didn’t hurt the Packers, Bears, or Redskins. It also didn’t keep the Colts and Browns from winning after they were absorbed into the league either.

    Those are excuses made by “fans” who are delusional and need to gain a little historical perspective about how the league’s “model franchise”was once it’s undeniable laughingstock.

    My guess is that is because most Steeler “fans” weren’t alive for the majority of the Super Bowl titles they brag about, and only want to claim the pieces of it that are convenient for them.

    Look at all these Ravens haters. Doubt so many people would have an opinion on the matter had the Ravens not won the most recent SB….

    your interpretation of football history is pathetic. i love the arguement that who cares about football history when the steelers were irrelevant. there was a league long before the steelers were good and to dismiss is it an insult to lambeau, halas, mara and the rest of the people who built the nfl. and while the steelers were still irrelevant baltimore came along and put the nfl on the map in the 58 championship against the giants. and yes baltimore lost the colts and modell moved his team here. not going to have a discussion with you about that history because you clearly know nothing about it. and since 96 the ravens have been one of the best most consistent franchises in the league, winning as many lombardis as the steelers. johnny come lately franchise…dont kid yourself son

    Now who is being condescending ? Such a typical raven hypocrite whining about someone else’s interpretation of history. Such a waste of time because in the end nothing is
    Resolved. To compare a new franchise to the steelers is silly. The recent Ratbird SB doesn’t make them anymore than recent successful team,but in no means cast the long long long history of the steelers in the trash. Ravens had a great season and should be very proud you are the champs, but it would be nice if the fans on here would act like they have been champs before….not holding my breath.

    steeler fans have “6 rings” and act like the world should bow before them while they dont accept the fact that a league existed before they were even mediocre. you all should act like youve been there before

    0 0 Not a single steeler fan has six rings, the team may but not the fans. No one is asking anyone to bow before them, but scoobie you are becoming so rigid in your logic. It’s i am the only one right and why do you say anything to the contrary….lighten up dude it’s only football not worth putting a knot in your knickers. I know it bothers you that the ravens get no respect, but there is a reason…you just don’t have an answer and that bugs you…have a great day my friend.

    Why are Steelers fans worried so much about something Torrey Smith says? It’s the weekend, shouldn’t they be vacationing down by the riv….OH GOD THE RIVER IS ON FIRE AGAIN!

    and by the way….you want to talk hypocrisy. i read a post from you calling out an ny fan and insulting new york because he had the audacity to insult pittsburgh. i do agree it was in horrible taste because of the mike adams stabbing. but dont you do the same thing to balto fans just because you dont like what we say about pitt. also you called the ravens a new franchise. glad you finally realized the ravens arent browns. good day
