Torrey Smith Not Worried About Contract Extension

Posted Jul 24, 2014

Wide receiver Torrey Smith said, ‘I’m a Raven, always going to be a Raven.’


Ravens Owner Steve Bisciotti and General Manager Ozzie Newsome have said they want to sign wide receiver Torrey Smith to a contract extension before he becomes a free agent next season.

Smith, however, doesn’t seem to be in any major rush.

That doesn’t mean he isn’t going to re-sign. It’s just that he’s not fretting over it.

“I don’t think about the contract at all,” Smith told reporters Thursday. “Every year is important. You want to win. That stuff all kind of takes care of itself.

“I’m not going to be out there on the field while I’m running a route like, ‘Man, Ozzie saw that!’”

Smith has previously said that he wants to remain a Raven, and he reiterated that once again.

“I’m a Raven, always going to be a Raven. That’s all I’m worried about,” he said.

So when could a new contract possibly be inked?

“I’m sure at some time today or next year or whenever,” he said. “I’m not going to give you all hints to what’s going on.

“The business side, I try to stay away from because you don’t worry about things you can’t control. That’s how I’ve been. I’ve watched guys how they let things like that affect them. Me, I’m just trying to go out there and have fun and get better and help us win.”

Smith has put together three standout seasons for the Ravens. Last year he put up career highs in catches (65) and receiving yards (1,128). He has 19 career touchdowns.

Head Coach John Harbaugh said he thinks Smith is going to have a “breakout season.”

“In my opinion, he’s a premier player in the National Football League,” Harbaugh said.

“You have to pull the guy back. You have to grab him and say, ‘Hey, man. Take a blow!’ You have to do that because he’s like a horse – he’ll run himself until his heart explodes. He’ll do it. He’s just a great, great young man.”
