Ravens waived WR Marcus Smith.
A special teamer, Smith appeared in 14 games for the Ravens in 2010. Entering his fourth season with zero catches to his name, Smith won't ever be a factor in an NFL offense. Sat, Sep 3, 2011 01:54:00 PM

Ravens re-signed WR Marcus Smith to a one-year, $600,000 contract.

It's the vet minimum for a player entering his fourth NFL season. Smith, 26, only played 10 snaps on offense all last year and made three special teams tackles. Lacking in offensive upside, he'll be in a dog fight for a roster spot.

Ravens withdrew their restricted free agent tender to WR Marcus Smith, making him a free agent.

Smith was purely a special teamer last season. The Ravens also withdrew their tender to Jalen Parmele, leaving us to wonder if the players showed up to camp in football shape.

Ravens extended restricted free agent WR Marcus Smith an original pick tender.

Smith, 26, made three tackles in kick and punt coverage last season while appearing in nine games on special teams. As a fourth-round pick originally, he'll be safe from offer sheets. Smith has not developed as a wide receiver.

Ravens WR Marcus Smith (ACL tear) admitted that he's still feeling pain in his surgically repaired knee.

Smith is looking to stick on the roster as the No. 5 receiver and special teamer. If healthy, he's more effective in that role than Demetrius Williams and David Reed.

Ravens WR Marcus Smith (ACL surgery) is participating fully in minicamp.

Smith's progression was a big story at Ravens offseason workouts last year, before he tore his ACL in preseason. This year, Smith will have a hard time lasting into September with Baltimore suddenly deep at his position.

Ravens WR Marcus Smith (ACL surgery) expects to be 100 percent by training camp.

The Anquan Boldin and Donte' Stallworth acquisitions leave Smith without an offensive role. He'll have an uphill battle to make the team as special teams gunner a year removed from the knee reconstruction.

Ravens WR Marcus Smith (ACL surgery) hopes to participate in OTAs, but he's more realistically aiming for training camp.

The Ravens have a lot of question marks at receiver, but Smith was unable to make an impact even before the ACL injury. He's a longshot to make the final roster next summer.

Ravens placed WR Marcus Smith (ACL surgery) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Smith tore his ACL in the Ravens' preseason opener. He was unable to get the inside track on the No. 4 receiving job this summer. He's no longer worth a roster spot in deep Dynasty leagues.

MRI results confirmed the Ravens' suspicions that WR Marcus Smith suffered a torn ACL Thursday night.

Smith is set to undergo surgery with Dr. James Andrews, and the Ravens' receiver corps grows even thinner. Coaches praised Smith's work ethic all offseason, but he had to stand out in camp. Deep Dynasty leaguers can cut bait on Smith as Justin Harper moves into the No. 4 receiver role, with Kelley Washington hot on his heels.

Ravens WR Marcus Smith suffered a serious knee injury in Thursday's preseason opener against the Redskins.

Smith will undergo an MRI Friday morning, but initial indications aren't positive. Coach John Harbaugh said he fears it's a torn ACL. Smith, last year's fourth-rounder, was battling Justin Harper for the No. 4 receiver role.

With Demetrius Williams sidelined, Ravens second-year WR Marcus Smith lined up as a starter Monday when the team went three-wide.

Smith lined up with Derrick Mason and Justin Harper. Williams is just nursing a sore hamstring, so Smith likely won't be with the starters for long. The Ravens don't exactly go three-wide very often so it's unlikely Smith would have much value anyway.

Ravens second-year receiver Marcus Smith recently dropped 10 pounds because he was dealing with cramping.

He also left a practice limping late last week. Smith was poised to take over the third receiver job while Derrick Mason was still "retired," but has moved back down the depth chart. He's probably not going to play much this year.

Marcus Smith is expected to be the Ravens' third receiver behind Demetrius Williams and Mark Clayton if Derrick Mason follows through on retiring.

That means Smith is ahead of Justin Harper, Kelley Washington, and Yamon Figurs, although the Ravens don't go three wide often. OC Cam Cameron likes Smith's size, but the '08 fourth-rounder didn't catch a pass as a rookie.

Marcus Smith is the favorite to be Baltimore's fourth receiver this season.

He hasn't impressed the local scribes, but Smith is a good bet to make the club this season. The guys in front of him - Derrick Mason, Mark Clayton, and Demetrius Williams - all face injury concerns, so Smith could work his way onto the field with a big training camp.
