Steve Smith, Lardarius Webb fight at Ravens practice

stevesmith AP

Steve Smith must be feeling right at home in Baltimore. He’s already had his first practice fight.

Smith and cornerback Lardarius Webb got in a fight today, according to Jamison Hensley of ESPN.

It sounds like this fight was nothing more than a shoving match, which for Smith is a step down from the types of fights he’s had with teammates in the past in Carolina. In 2002, Smith was suspended for a game for punching teammate Anthony Bright during a film session, and in 2008 he was kicked out of a training camp practice for punching teammate Ken Lucas.

The Smith-Webb battle was the second fight of practice today for the Ravens. In a matchup of rookies, tight end Crockett Gillmore, a third-round draft pick, took on defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, a second-round pick. Sometimes when a couple of rookies get into a training camp fight, a veteran comes over to tell them to cool it. In the case of the Ravens, one of the most experienced players on their roster is also one of the most experienced fighters.

    LOL! It didn’t take long. Remember, a few days ago I complimented Smith’s goals and said it was just a matter of which teammate got beat up along the way……. LOL

    Ray Rice would have knocked Webb out…

  3. dallascowboysdishingthereal says: Jun 18, 2014 3:00 PM

    That’s Smith. He keeps it edgy no matter if it’s during the season or in June.

  4. thegreatgabbert says: Jun 18, 2014 3:00 PM

    Smith took Gillmore aside after practice to help his with his uppercuts.

    +Free Agency

    +The Draft

    +Steve Smith Training Camp Fight

    Looks like the NFL is right on schedule as usual

  6. jamaltimore says: Jun 18, 2014 3:01 PM

    You better stop posting these articles. Soon congress is going to step in to stop fighting in football. Bullying and mean words can not be tolerated in the NFL or anywhere.

  7. joeflaccoallday says: Jun 18, 2014 3:01 PM

    Love it. Now let’s beat up Steelers and Bengals.

  8. hardythekraken says: Jun 18, 2014 3:01 PM

    LOL, you can’t make this stuff up.

  9. realdealsteel says: Jun 18, 2014 3:02 PM

    Love what Smith is going to bring to the Ravens. Turmoil!

    GO STEELERS!

  10. jayb330 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:02 PM

    Big whoop. Like training camp fights are rare…

  11. ialwayswantedtobeabanker says: Jun 18, 2014 3:04 PM

    Steve Smith is ready to rock … with ANYone. Know that.

  12. waussau says: Jun 18, 2014 3:05 PM

    Shocking…

  13. thestrategyexpert says: Jun 18, 2014 3:06 PM

    Steve Smith probably let him know that if he gets cut there’s 6 teams out there that have both the Ravens and the Panthers on the schedule.

  14. pilot2011 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:07 PM

    God I miss Smitty.

  15. aaronfraudgers says: Jun 18, 2014 3:07 PM

    Something about putting on that Ravens uniform makes a person violent.

  16. logicailvoicesays says: Jun 18, 2014 3:11 PM

    Maryland’s second ranked team can’t dream of comparing to the perennial Super Bowl champion Redskins so their players stoop to fighting.

    While the Ravens are crass the Redskins are all class. HTTR.

  17. dvdman123 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:13 PM

    This not even training camp!!!!!!!!

  18. jklecko77hof says: Jun 18, 2014 3:15 PM

    Why don’t we call it “bullying?” That way, the sensitivity police can have something else to whine about. Make him watch Alan Alda movies and listen to Streisand records. That should fix it.

  19. nyyjetsknicks says: Jun 18, 2014 3:15 PM

    My sources tell me that there were tons of fights at football practices in high school, college and the NFL.

  20. fwippel says: Jun 18, 2014 3:18 PM

    They got into an argument about the Redskins name.

  21. corvusrex96 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:18 PM

    With Steve Smiths history I would be more worried if he didn’t start a fight with a teammate

  22. kuranda84 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:19 PM

    Boys will be boys

  23. theravenmaniac says: Jun 18, 2014 3:20 PM

    Love the intensity!!!!
    only intensity from the squeakers is when Ben attempts to fit into last years pants.

  24. soulmancer says: Jun 18, 2014 3:20 PM

    Every NFL player dreams of a teammate like Steve Smith; a talented athlete who will likely meltdown and start attacking his teammates. (Not.)

  25. tqaztec says: Jun 18, 2014 3:21 PM

    Mr. Smith,

    One of these days your are going to fight the wrong person and it will not end well for you. Grow up.

  26. pilot2011 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:26 PM

    HOF

  27. kaakwha says: Jun 18, 2014 3:26 PM

    Ravens fan here, but was very unhappy with the Steve Smith signing. Ladarius better watch his back because now he is a Steve Smith sucker punch target. GET THE PANTHER REJECT OUTTA HERE HARBAUGH!

  28. flash1287 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:26 PM

    That’s because Steve Smith is a punk who went to a punk team.
    Is there another team in the NFL with more dirt balls on it than the Ravens?

    Oh just wait till JUMP BALL JOE sails all those punts he throws up of Smiths head!

  29. minnesoulja says: Jun 18, 2014 3:28 PM

    The violence offends me. I am a professional bird-watcher, and Ravens don’t fight with each other.

    Change the name… boohoo…

    Also Steve Smith is a bully, and I know a guy named Steve Smith who is really a nice guy….

    Make him change his name too!

    This is unfair, quick, somebody hire a lawyer.

  30. coachbeck says: Jun 18, 2014 3:29 PM

    Ice up son

  31. jayblack073 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:30 PM

    Ice up son

  32. theclink12 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:32 PM

    I have said it here before and I will continue to say it:

    The NFL is a better place with Steve Smith in it.

    “Ice up, son.”

  33. steelpenbucs87 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:33 PM

    Training camp fights are a dime a dozen. But for the most part it’s the big uglies who get in them, not skill guys!

  34. nickster31 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:35 PM

    You put 90 men on a field competing for 56 spots, all of which pay no less than $500k, and are surprised when there is a fight?

    EVERY team has fights, only reason we are hearing about this is because it’s Steve Smith.

    Nothing to see here. Move along.

  35. flvikesfan says: Jun 18, 2014 3:36 PM

    I can’t wait for his low speed, white Bronco police chase. He will simply be known by his inmate number after football.

  36. steelcityfinest13 says: Jun 18, 2014 3:36 PM

    They better get each other tough because them steeler boys is punching everybody with joey p mouthing at em….we back to snatching ravens off the bus haaaaa…..ask ray lewis

  37. Nofoolnodrool says: Jun 18, 2014 3:41 PM

    Was an elevator the issue?

  38. getyourownname says: Jun 18, 2014 3:43 PM

    Yeah, it’s unusual for players to get hot under the collar when practicing in 100 degree heat and humidity.

  39. stainlessstill says: Jun 18, 2014 3:44 PM

    Homewrecker. Cakewalk for the Steelers in the North this year.

  40. walkinginthewasteland says: Jun 18, 2014 3:58 PM

    Sometimes when a couple of rookies get into a training camp fight, a veteran comes over to tell them to cool it. In the case of the Ravens, the veteran comes over to critique the punches and provide suggestions.

  41. pridewatcher says: Jun 18, 2014 4:00 PM

    Being physical in a physical game is indeed disturbing. They should discuss things instead just like they do on gamedays.

  42. reesesteel23 says: Jun 18, 2014 4:00 PM

    Lol yesssssss

  43. melikefootball says: Jun 18, 2014 4:04 PM

    I guess all those anger management classes Smith attended he didn’t pass.

  44. tennesseeoilers says: Jun 18, 2014 4:04 PM

    That’s not fighting, that’s mentoring. ;-)

  45. southpaw2k says: Jun 18, 2014 4:07 PM

    Oh no.

    There was a fight during Ravens minicamp.

    Surely this means the wheels are coming off and the team is doomed.

  46. weepingjebus says: Jun 18, 2014 4:12 PM

    If you don’t fight in training camp then you will not be ready to fight during the regular season. That’s why we have training camp.

  47. Steeler's Didn't-but-Will-eventually says: Jun 18, 2014 4:20 PM

    Fighting at practice is a sign that the boys are ready to play! C’mon September!

  48. tae323 says: Jun 18, 2014 4:20 PM

    Did Webb have to apologize to Smith after the fight

  49. trollaikman8 says: Jun 18, 2014 4:22 PM

    What took so long?

    I love Smith but I laugh that he’s the 15th old- undersized FA WR the Ravens have picked up in the past 5 years.

  50. sladewillson says: Jun 18, 2014 4:44 PM

    OMG I can’t believe there was a fight at a football practice, we must put a stop to this….. Facetious

  51. vincentbojackson says: Jun 18, 2014 4:44 PM

    At least nobody hit a woman.

  52. overratedsteelerhater says: Jun 18, 2014 4:49 PM

    mix it up before camp,neither going to back down.Hope the NFL gives that other lousy MD team a new stadium in Northern VA to change name.yhey don’t belon in MD…

  53. tindeaux says: Jun 18, 2014 4:57 PM

    i wouldn’t mind if some defensive guy steps up and beat the craps out of this smith guy. i’m tired of hearing his name associated with fighting.

  54. ilovefoolsball says: Jun 18, 2014 5:05 PM

    I think this opens up an opportunity for endorsement. EA sports could make a fight night, football edition and Smith could be on the cover. Players can use helmets as weapons.

  55. billsboy88 says: Jun 18, 2014 5:06 PM

    Dude is a loose cannon

  56. bhinrichs9 says: Jun 18, 2014 5:15 PM

    Harbaugh “Make yourself at home Steve!”

    I don’t think he meant it like that.

  57. clashpoint says: Jun 18, 2014 5:17 PM

    All Smith did was push him?
    That guy has gotten old.

    I can’t wait to see Shazier smash him.

  58. bighat8 says: Jun 18, 2014 5:34 PM

    That’s Steve being Steve..beating up teamates. Ask Ken Lucas or Stephen Davis if they’ll ever talk smack to the man again . Baltimore has a winner in town.

  59. lowriderfxr says: Jun 18, 2014 5:44 PM

    Ray said Steve need to elevate (or) his game.

  60. denver1983 says: Jun 18, 2014 6:34 PM

    Steve Smith needs punch Ray Rice

  61. napavalleyshaun says: Jun 18, 2014 7:10 PM

    A. Hernandez should have just hired Steve Smith for the dirty work. Done.

  62. dowhatifeellike says: Jun 18, 2014 7:10 PM

    I would be more concerned if Smith didn’t fight anyone at camp…

  63. cursedvikings1998 says: Jun 18, 2014 7:24 PM

    Steve Smith is juiced out of his mind.

  64. nosleeptilsb says: Jun 18, 2014 7:48 PM

    Love him or hate him, you can’t deny Smiths passion or talent. What’s scary is he’s not old yet. Sorry panthers, you screwed the pooch on this one.

  65. jimmyjames65 says: Jun 18, 2014 8:05 PM

    It was HOT today.

  66. fordwuzanazi says: Jun 18, 2014 8:10 PM

    If he punches Flacco, I will immediately buy his jersey.

  67. dontasemebro says: Jun 18, 2014 8:28 PM

    Lets all prepare for the flurry of tweets, instagram, emails, interviews, and the like as Steve Smith gives his version of the events. He loves to hear himself talk!

  68. Canton Bulldogs says: Jun 18, 2014 9:14 PM

    When you read the other players opinion they say it’s great, haven’t had that intensity on offense since Q left. I’ll bet every corner that lines up opposite Smith in practice tightens his chin strap a little tighter. It’ll pay off when they line up against big softies like Antonio Brown and AJ Green.

  69. ilametta91 says: Jun 18, 2014 9:14 PM

    In the wise words of Joe Flacco…

    “That’s retarded”.

  70. norwegianwud says: Jun 18, 2014 10:42 PM

    Surprise!? Not. It’s minicamp. Nothing else to report, I’d say.

  71. bobsnygiants says: Jun 18, 2014 11:04 PM

    let’s see if Rice can hit Smith!

  72. bullethead527 says: Jun 18, 2014 11:12 PM

    Steve Smith is a firecracker, I loved him being in Carolina, I seen so many times him laying out a defensive lineman in his 5’9 190 pound frame during running plays or just downfield blocks, tough as nails, temper like a mad AND THE BEST PLAYER TO EVER WEAR A PANTHER UNIFORM!

  73. lawlessko says: Jun 18, 2014 11:49 PM

    And this is why I’ve wanted the overpriced Smith gone from Charlotte for near a decade, he’s a POS, and a horrible teammate. Is he the best receiver in Panthers history? yes. Could you have gotten a better WR for the same money, without the headache? Yes.

  74. baltimoresnativeson says: Jun 19, 2014 1:52 AM

    In a film session? That is hillarious.
