The Ravens have no plans to move on from CB Jimmy Smith despite his suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
He was suspended by the league for alleged "improper conduct" including "threatening and emotionally abusive behaviors" towards his ex-girlfriend, which Smith essentially admitted to in his apology statement. Smith's actions are obviously concerning, but the organization isn't ready to give up on its star cornerback. "We convened a group of Ravens women and men executives, not directly involved with our football operations, to review the matter. We also engaged in conversations with Jimmy about his past behavior and his intention to change," the team said in a statement. "As a result of this entire process, we will allow Jimmy to return to our team after his suspension." Smith already appealed his suspension, so there's no chance of it getting vacated or reduced. He'll be eligible to play Week 5 against the Browns. Aug 21 - 7:47 PM

NFL suspended Ravens CB Jimmy Smith four games for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

After investigating domestic violence claims made by his ex-girlfriend, the league determined that Smith exhibited a "pattern of improper conduct" including "threatening and emotionally abusive behaviors." The 30-year-old, who missed the first four games of last season while serving a PED ban, apologized for his actions. "I would like to sincerely apologize to my former girlfriend, the NFL, the Ravens organization, my coaches, my teammates, my fiancée and all our fans," he said. "I'm very disappointed that my past actions have led to this suspension." He'll be eligible to return against the Browns in Week 5.

The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec reports the Ravens "are bracing for" a multi-week suspension for CB Jimmy Smith.

Apparently, the team is already aware of the ban, and Smith is currently appealing it with the league. It stems from a violation of the personal conduct policy. Smith has been involved in a custody battle, and his ex accused him of illegal drug use and domestic violence last year, though no criminal charges have been handed down in the matter. Smith has missed 17 games over the past four years and was suspended four games last year for a PEDs violation.

Last season, Smith graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 18 cover corner among 121 qualifiers.

Ravens CB Jimmy Smith (Achilles') is participating in individual drills at minicamp.

It's a great sign after Smith tore his Achilles' in December. There was initially wonder if Smith would even be ready for Week 1, but at this point, he should be ready for training camp. Coach John Harbaugh did say in March that Smith was ahead of schedule in his rehab. With Smith, Brandon Carr, and sophomore Marlon Humphrey, Baltimore has a solid cornerback trio.
