Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith plans to play next season, according to a source.
Huddle Up: SSS enjoyed a quite a revival with 79 catches for 1,065 yards and six TDs this year, although his production slowed over the second half of the season. Still, Smith's veteran presence, edge and leadership by example are rare and the Ravens will be happy to have him back in the fold.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith is expected to line up against New England Patriots CB Darrelle Revis for most of the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10.
Huddle Up: Smith might be physical enough to hold his own against Revis, but it's certainly not a matchup that suggests he'll be a dominant force for the Baltimore offense.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith became the 18th player in NFL history with 900 career catches in the Week 15 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Huddle Up: Not too shabby for Smith, whom the Panthers thought was done when they kicked him to the curb this offseason. Like he said in his postgame interview, just ask his wife about his stamina.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith Sr. (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as probable for Week 10.
Huddle Up: As usual, Triple-S will be out there Sunday, and his fantasy owners will be banking on a turnaround after he's compiled only 11 catches for 138 yards and no scores over the last 3 games.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith (non-injury) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: Just a day off for the Ravens' leading pass-catcher, who had a season-low 3 receptions in the Week 7 rout of the Falcons.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith was targeted 10 times in Week 2 and hauled in six catches for 71 yards. WR Torrey Smith had just three targets and caught one pass for 10 yards in the game.
Huddle Up: Through the first two games at least the Baltimore offense is running through Steve Smith and the tight end position. Feels like a good fantasy buy-low opportunity on Torrey Smith, but there's a definite risk that, as opposed to playing the Andre Johnson role in Gary Kubiak's Baltimore version of his Houston offense, this is how the Ravens passing game will break down the rest of the way.

Baltimore Ravens WR Steve Smith's three-year deal is worth $10.5 million and will include a $3.5 million signing bonus.
Huddle Up: Smith will give Joe Flacco an alternative to Torrey Holt. He's not quite as big as Anquan Boldin, but Smith is every bit as tough and should flourish as a WR2 rather than being the only passing game option as he was in Carolina.

There is mutual interest between the Baltimore Ravens and free-agent WR Steve Smith (Ravens), but a source said that nothing is imminent Thursday, March 13.
Huddle Up: The Ravens will have some heady competition for the veteran wideout with the Seahawks, Patriots and Chargers among the other teams reportedly interested in Smith.

The Carolina Panthers officially released WR Steve Smith on Thursday, March 13.
Huddle Up: Smith's brilliant 13-year run in Carolina is over after the Panthers were unable to swing a trade, and now the soon-to-be 35-year-old is free to sign with anyone. The Ravens, who could use another wideout, are the favorites.

Carolina Panthers general manager David Gettleman did not rule out the possibility of parting ways with WR Steve Smith this offseason. 'Steve's had a great career, and the bottom line is, it's part of the evaluation process.' Smith is scheduled to receive $4 million guaranteed next season with a $3 million bonus.
Huddle Up: Smith, who will turn 35 in May, saw his reception and yardage total drop for the 3rd straight season and failed to pace Carolina in receiving for the first time since 2004. Still, Smith has been the Panthers' heart and soul for more than a decade, and it would be a shock to see him wearing another uniform.
