Ravens retain CB Jimmy Smith, who signs up for another year
Smith was an unrestricted free agent after a season in which he hurt his knee in the opener and missed the next six games. But Smith has been a starter since his rookie season with the Ravens in 2011 and played a key role in Baltimore’s victory over San Francisco in the 2012 Super Bowl.
The Ravens went 14-2 last season and had the league’s sixth-ranked pass defense. Smith ended up with 30 tackles and an interception in nine games, including five starts.
