49ers agree to 5-year, $40 million deal with WR Torrey Smith

Mar 10, 2015 at 1:43 PM--


On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers agreed to terms with wide receiver Torrey Smith, formerly of the Baltimore Ravens. The deal is for five-years, $40 million with $22 million guaranteed. He will be joining another former Raven in Anquan Boldin and help to stretch the field for opposing defenses.

Smith was widely considered one of the top receivers in free agency and could be a good fit for Colin Kaepernick, the team's strong armed quarterback.

Smith was with the Ravens since being selected in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He has recorded 213 receptions for 3,591 yards and 30 receiving touchdowns in his 62 starts out of 64 games in his career.

Smith and Boldin helped the Ravens defeat the 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

It was reported earlier today that Boldin played a big part in getting Smith to San Francisco. He helped the 49ers in the recruitment process.
