Owings Mills, MD (SportsNetwork.com) – The Baltimore Ravens signed
cornerback Jimmy Smith to a contract extension on Tuesday.
While terms were not disclosed, an NFL.com report indicated it is a four-
year deal worth $48 million with $21 million guaranteed.
The 26-year-old Colorado product will be entering his fifth season with
Baltimore after being selected No. 27 overall in the 2011 draft. In his first
four seasons, he intercepted five passes and broke up 32 more in 47 games. His
2014 season was cut short due to a Lisfranc sprain.
Smith was entering the final season of his rookie contract and would have
become an unrestricted free agent in 2016.
