  1. Smith’s age, in tandem with past injuries, which are behind him, just not far enough for teams to feel comfortable about him, is why he didn’t land a major deal elsewhere. As it is, there’s worse things for him than getting a chance to continue his career with the Ravens and try to prove he can stay healthy and play at a high level. Who knows, the Ravens are due to have quite a bit more cap room next year anyway.
