Former 49ers WR Torrey Smith signs with Eagles

Mar 9, 2017 at 8:24 AM--


Just two days after officially being released by the San Francisco 49ers, WR Torrey Smith has signed a three-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles worth $15 million, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. In 2015, Smith signed a five-year deal worth $40 million to join the 49ers.


The Eagles and 49ers reportedly flirted with the idea of a trade that would send Smith to Philadelphia, but San Francisco may have been asking for too much for the receiver.

Torrey Smith, who was with the team for just two seasons, was brought in after four productive seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. Each of his season totals with the 49ers became the lowest of his career. Smith had just 53 catches for 930 yards and seven touchdowns during his time with the 49ers.

During his four seasons with the Ravens, which included a Super Bowl XLVII victory over the 49ers, Smith had averaged over 53 catches per season and averaged nearly 898 receiving yards. During his two seasons with the 49ers, those averages dropped to under 27 catches per season and 465 receiving yards.

In 2016, Smith had the worst statistical season of his six-year career. He caught just 20 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns. Each of the three statistics are career lows. Smith finished the season on the injured reserve list after suffering a concussion on December 11 against the New York Jets.

Smith was scheduled to count nearly $9.5 million against the 49ers' cap in 2016 and then $9.6 million during each of the next two years with a base salary of $6.5 million during each year.

The 49ers are expected to sign Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garçon and speedy Buffalo Bills WR Marquise Goodwin once free agency officially begins on Thursday at 1 p.m. Pacific.

San Francisco 49ers tight end Jordan Reed had one of the best catches of the season on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Unfortunately, it didn't result in a first down, nor did the game end in a victory for his Niners. The one-handed catch came in the second quarter and featured Reed hauling in the Nick Mullens-thrown football just inches above the turf. Oh my. @JR86📺: #SFvsNO on FOX📱: NFL app // Yahoo Sports app:
