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.
