Ravens sign WR Steve Smith (3 years, $11M; $3.5M guaranteed): MILLEN BLOOD AND GUTS KIELBASA Grade

Ozzie Newsome is one of the top NFL general managers, but he's only human. He's made draft selections that haven't worked out, and he's signed some free agents who have disappointed. This looks to be Newsome's worst transaction ever.

It's mind-boggling that Steve Smith received a $3.5 million signing bonus and an $11 million deal. Smith doesn't deserve any sort of signing bonus based on the way he played last year, and to be honest, I was expecting him to sign a 1-year contract for the veteran minimum.

Smith is done. He has lost his elite speed. He failed to register more than 69 yards in a single game this past season. He's no longer a starting-caliber receiver. He's also a potential locker room distraction. This signing makes zero sense. The only possible reason for bringing Smith in is to energize the team and fan base following a mediocre 2013 campaign, and that doesn't even come close to justifying this sort of contract for a has-been.

Never seen so much hate for Steve Smith before. Holy crap. Does he have a point though?

You mean the guy who used Adrian Peterson's son's death to get clicks to his fantasy site?

89 represent the old era of high maintenance WRs.....there isn't tons of love for those guys outside of the fanbase they reside in.

And 89 is high maintenance possession WR now.....those shouldn't demand much money.

Smith's biggest game last year was 69 freaking yards.

Walter is an idiot but he's not far off.

69 yards targeted as the teams number 1.....which is bad.

Smith had the fewest 20+ yard receptions by anyone within the top 65 with 4 of those catches.  Pretty bad for instance, Olsen quadrupled Smith number with 12.  Old man Greg Jennings 11.  Mr Dumpoff Eldemen 9.  Lazy Hakeem Nicks 14.

 

Ranked 168 in yard per catch average, and ranked 130 in YAC.  The only thing that saved him from looking worse is the sheer amounts of targets.
