Torrey Smith dropped 18.33 percent of his catchable targets last season.
Smith had the second-most drops (11) among receivers despite ranking 50th in targets (89). He was only outdone by Mohamed Sanu, who dropped 14 passes on 97 targets. We like Smith's new landing spot for the 49ers' offense, but Colin Kaepernick's shoddy accuracy isn't going to benefit Smith. Anquan Boldin should remain the go-to target in the middle of the field, on third downs, and in the red zone. Smith may be more of a decoy lid-lifter just to open up the field. Apr 16 - 10:33 AM

49ers signed WR Torrey Smith, formerly of the Ravens, to a five-year, $40 million contract that includes $22 million guaranteed.

This deal has been in place for a couple days. Smith gives Colin Kaepernick what he's desperately been missing outside: a speed threat who can run by a defensive back and score a long touchdown. In San Francisco, Smith will reunite with his mentor Anquan Boldin and stretch the field for he and Vernon Davis. Kaepernick's big arm and Smith's blazing speed should complement each other.

ESPN's Jim Trotter reports the 49ers are "feeling good" about their chances of signing free agent Torrey Smith, but that they're "holding their breath" until Tuesday.

The Baltimore Sun has reported that Smith-to-San Fran is a "done deal," but it doesn't appear this one is quite as done as Frank Gore, Ndamukong Suh, etc. Smith would be a rare talent addition for a club that's been bleeding it all offseason.

One source told the Baltimore Sun that free agent Torrey Smith signing with the 49ers is a "done deal."

It can't hurt that Torrey has stayed tight with Anquan Boldin since playing across from him in Baltimore. The Sun floats $8 million to $9 million annually as Smith's likely price range. The Ravens are less than $5 million under the cap and couldn't match such an offer. The Sun also confirms Andre Johnson "would be regarded as a potential fit" to replace Torrey opposite Steve Smith Sr.

Free agent Torrey Smith wrote on his blog that he will not be returning to the Ravens.

The expectation is that he'll sign with the 49ers. As Jeremy Maclin and Torrey are easily the top-two wide receivers left in free agency, Smith figures to command a hefty sum. We'd guess he ends up in the $8 million-per-year range. The Ravens will need to find a new bookend for 36-year-old Steve Smith Sr. Andre Johnson makes sense as a short-term stopgap, but Baltimore would be wise to use an early-round draft pick at wideout, as well.

Updating an earlier item, ESPN's Adam Caplan believes the 49ers will sign free agent Torrey Smith "unless the money is too rich for them."

We suppose you could say that about any team in pursuit of a free agent, but it's clear the 49ers are zeroing in on the 26-year-old deep threat. Caplan is a very reliable reporter. Per Caplan, the Colts and Texans are also interested in Smith. With Randall Cobb off the market, Smith is Rotoworld's No. 2 free agent receiver. His arrival would ensure Michael Crabtree walks.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports the 49ers are "very interested" in free agent WR Torrey Smith.

Smith would give the 49ers a deep threat to complement Anquan Boldin. With Michael Crabtree leaving in free agency and Stevie Johnson a candidate for release, San Francisco is one of the league's most receiver-needy teams. Smith is Rotoworld's No. 3 available wideout behind Randall Cobb and Jeremy Maclin.
Mar 7 - 9:38 PM

Speaking Tuesday, owner Steve Bisciotti expressed pessimism about the Ravens' chances of re-signing free agent Torrey Smith.

"There's always a team that has lots of money that wants to bring in playmakers," Bisciotti said. "Those guys are going to get those deals. I think we're going to have to take it on the chin and move on." Bisciotti cited Mike Wallace as an example of a playmaker who was overpaid in free agency. Bisciotti said he was rooting for Smith to "maximize his earnings," but strongly implied he won't be the owner handing out the deal.

Asked about free agent Torrey Smith, Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome said "we have a history of retaining our players."

However, Newsome added he was not afraid to let players test the market, and acknowledged there's a strong chance Smith will get a better offer in free agency. If that's the case, Smith will undoubtedly take it. Smith's odds of remaining in Baltimore are no better than 50-50.

SI's Peter King believes free agent Torrey Smith's best contract offer won't come from Baltimore.

It's speculation on King's part, but probably rooted in truth. Coming off an 11-touchdown season, Smith didn't do anything to hurt his market value despite frustrating fantasy owners. At 26, the elite deep threat is just now entering his prime. Once Demaryius Thomas and Dez Bryant are assigned franchise tags, Smith could emerge as one of this year's premium free agents.
Feb 20 - 10:13 AM

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports the Ravens offered free agent Torrey Smith a five-year, $35 million deal that included $19 million guaranteed before the season.

It's an offer Smith will have a hard time matching in free agency after posting a 49/767/11 line in 2014. Smith is one of the league's very best deep threats, but his game hasn't evolved to that of a true No. 1 receiver's. Re-signing with Baltimore makes the most sense for both sides, but Smith may need to test the open market to ensure fair value.
Feb 3 - 3:39 PM

Torrey Smith said he'd prefer to re-sign with the Ravens before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in March.

Smith is from Virginia, played his college ball at the University of Maryland and has spent four productive seasons with the Ravens (30 touchdowns in 64 games). A re-signing certainly makes sense here. But Smith needs to test the market, if only to ensure a fair contract from Baltimore. "I understand this is a business and nothing is guaranteed. I'll let everything play out," he said.

Torrey Smith caught 3-of-6 targets for 62 yards in Baltimore's Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.

It was a volatile day for the fourth-year deep threat, who suffered an early shoulder injury, and committed two personal fouls. Smith played through the shoulder ailment, while his second personal foul was of the "ticky tack" variety. Headed to free agency, Smith has been one of the league's very best deep threats since he first set foot in the NFL, but has lacked for consistency at the other parts of the field. He won't come close to a Mike Wallace-type deal on the open market. Smith is not a realistic candidate for the franchise tag, which is expected to cost roughly $12 million for wideouts.
Jan 10 - 8:34 PM

Torrey Smith expects to run most of his routes against Patriots RCB Brandon Browner in Saturday's Divisional Round game.

Steve Smith will see mostly LCB Darrelle Revis. While Revis was Pro Football Focus' No. 4 overall cover corner during the regular season, Browner was 65th among 108 qualifiers. Torrey has also become Joe Flacco's go-to guy in the red zone. Expect Browner to try to rough Torrey up with physicality and jams at the line, but if Torrey can get loose, he has the speed to torch Browner.
Jan 7 - 9:30 AM

Torrey Smith had two catches for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Steelers.

He also drew a 32-yard pass interference call. Smith was held without a catch in the first half, but got open in the back of the end-zone on a broken play for his touchdown. He finished behind only Steve Smith with six targets. The Ravens will take on the Patriots in the Divisional Round.
