Torrey Smith can’t officially sign with another team until Tuesday. But he already knows he’s leaving Baltimore.
Smith, the soon-to-be free agent wide receiver who has spent his entire career with the Ravens, wrote an open letter today thanking the team, his coaches, teammates and fans for four good years together.
“I will be playing for a different organization, but I will remain committed to the City of Baltimore,” Smith wrote. “I will continue to give back and help build a better future for our young men and women. MY COMMITMENT TO THE CITY IS FOR LIFE. This isn’t a goodbye because I will still be around and Baltimore will continue to be my home in the offseason and when my career is done. I’m on to the next chapter of my life and football career, but I will see you guys later.”
Smith didn’t say where he’s heading next, but he’s reportedly ready to agree to a contract with the 49ers as soon as he can legally do so, on Tuesday.
