Glaze up son: Steve Smith brings “peace offering” to work

Steve Smith AP

It was a small bit of news yesterday when new Ravens receiver Steve Smith got into it at practice with cornerback Lardarius Webb.

News, primarily because it was new for the Ravens.

The reality is, Smith was part wideout/part personnel man with the Panthers for 13 years, primarily offering to help pick the roster at cornerback by going all-out in practice. In the old days, that led to some fights.

But Smith’s latest exchange has shown his maturity, and his sense of humor.

Smith just tweeted out a photo to Webb of a bag of doughnuts, inscribed “Peace offering from 89.”

The fact he added the hashtag “#glazeupson” — a takeoff on his “Ice up, son” remarks to Aqib Talib last year — also shows he has a future in marketing.

    God I miss Smitty

    He’s soft.

    Get used to it, Ravens! Steve doesn’t let up. He leaves no holes unfilled……..and you don’t want to end up looking like a cream puff! Practice or game, it make no difference.

    I’m sure this ends up being good for team morale. Webb has to be the big spoon, Smith has never been a big fellow. Always being the inside spoon probably wears on him after a while.

    The marketing folks at Dunkin just got a freebie idea. Can see the commercials already.

    People making a big deal out of this pushing match. Y’all read about the bench clearing between O and D in Seattle?

    Only punks go full tilt when others are not.

    Not enough guys like this in the league today

    Good one Steve.

    89 was a great addition by Baltimore and he’s pushing a really good corner to be great. Good news for Ravens fans.

    How can you not like Steve Smith?! Well….unless he’s made a living torching your team twice a year…but other than that, how can you not like Steve Smith!!

    I can’t wait to see how quickly he gets in the face of a WR who drops a 3rd down pass in the first preseason game in August. I would not want to be in that player’s shoes.

    Steve Smith is exactly the kind of player the Ravens need.

    Genius. That is gold man, gold!

    Glaze up son! Shout out to all the folks out there who try to say with a straight face that they wouldn’t want Smith on their team… don’t feel bad I was that dude for years with Hines Ward. Though the enemy, I use to love Hines Wards ability to downfield block more than any other part of his game. He was a trend setter in that regard, whether it was deemed “cheap” or “over excessive” I loved it cause it was 100% will and determination and most of all it got into defenders heads. Him and Smith were never the fastest, tallest, nor most athletic but still the one that secondaries feared the most on any given play.

    This is how its done.

    These supposed camp “fights” are mostly media-fueled nothings. Notice yesterday’s Seahawk scuffle with Sherman that also turned out to be … nothing?

    But the question is, will Terry Bradshaw show the same maturity?

  15. claymus1 says: Jun 19, 2014 9:44 AM

    GREAT get by the Ravens.

    A picture of a bag of doughnuts is a terrible peace offering. I’d much rather have the actual bag of doughnuts.

  17. meximyke says: Jun 19, 2014 9:48 AM

    Would not want him on my team! Why did carolina tell him to hit the road?

  18. pascalswager42 says: Jun 19, 2014 9:50 AM

    I love this.

    However, I’m unsure of how the signing of SSmith will impact the Ravens on the field.

    They will continue to miss a big, go-to possession receiver ala Anquan Boldin.

  19. dowhatifeellike says: Jun 19, 2014 10:11 AM

    I like it. I would be worried if he had a history of dirty play, but scuffles in practice happen at every level of football. This team needed a guy who can’t give less than his best and has passion for the game coming out of his pores.

    Where’s my bag of donuts?

    I just hope he knocks out flacco before the season so maybe we can watch some as semblance of an actual offense.

    enormous Ben got to it first

  23. terryobitts says: Jun 20, 2014 10:52 AM

    Sure sucks that the public can’t watch practices anymore. Bring it back to Westminster!!

    I love Steve and the mindset he is bringing to the team. It will only help a team that lost its killer instinct in ’13.

    That said, catch phrases are for fictional characters Steve.
