Draft Scout Jimmy Smith News
09/14/15 - CB Jimmy Smith showed no ill-effects from the foot injury that ended his season last year. He intercepted Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning and ran 24 yards for the Ravens' only touchdown of the game. He also led the team with eight tackles.
"As long as we can see the ball, play fast, run simple coverages, I think we'll get a lot of turnovers," Smith said. "We create it with our front seven getting back to rush the pass. I don't know how many sacks we had today, but I know we had Peyton Manning backing around when he was throwing the ball."
08/15/15 - CB Jimmy Smith signed a four-year, $48 million contract extension prior to the season, making him one of the highest paid corners in the league. Smith, however, had a season-ending foot injury in November, which was a major setback for the Ravens. In the first preseason game against the Saints, Smith ran drills prior to kickoff but did not dress for the game as a precaution to keep him fresh and healthy. The Ravens simply cannot afford to have Smith get injured again.
06/17/15 - CB Jimmy Smith sustained a Lisfranc left foot sprain against the Cincinnati Bengals that required surgery and ended his 2014 season after six games.
Although Smith hasn't returned to full health, he has displayed speed and cover skills during the Ravens' offseason practices.
"He has worked hard as far as the injury front this year," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said of Smith this week. "He is getting closer and closer to being 100 percent.
"He's not there, yet, but nobody has worked harder than he has. He has been here every day since the season was over, so it probably starts that way in terms of leading by example."
The Ravens signed Smith to a four-year, $48 million contract extension this offseason that included $21 million guaranteed with a $13 million signing bonus.
Smith was having one of his best seasons before the injury, allowing only 20 receptions for 163 yards and no touchdowns while being targeted just 39 times, according to Pro Football Focus. He finished last season with 28 tackles, one interception and eight passes defensed.
Harbaugh singled out Smith as a leader this week.
"He has done it by working hard," Harbaugh said. "He has done it by honing his craft and becoming the very best corner he can be. I love the way he pays attention to detail, but he has also done it by overcoming adversity."
04/21/15 - CB Jimmy Smith reached agreement on a contract extension with the Ravens Tuesday (April 21).

The 2011 first-round draft pick was scheduled to make $6.898 million this year in the final season of his rookie contract.The new agreement will take Smith through the 2019 season.
Smith's 2014 season was cut short in November by a Lisfranc injury, but Ravens coach John Harbaugh expects Smith to be ready for offseason workouts in May.
The 26-year-old Smith has 141 career tackles and five carer interceptions.
