WR Smith: ‘Horrible feeling’ if last game with Ravens


Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, whose contract expires after the season, said it’s a “horrible feeling” knowing the possibility he could be playing his final game with the team Sunday.

Smith will be an unrestricted free agent in March if the Ravens don’t use the franchise tag on him, which would cost approximately $12 million. He said this week that he would like to remain with the Ravens.

“As bad as it is not going to the playoffs, that’s a horrible feeling to knowing that it’s a possibility that I might not be here next year,” Smith said. “But I’m not really worried about that. I’m trying to win this game and see what happens.”

After a 25-13 loss to the Houston Texans last Sunday, the Ravens need a win over the Cleveland Browns in the season finale and a San Diego loss to Kansas City in order to advance to the postseason

Smith went over the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career in 2013. But through 15 games this season, he has a career-low 684 yards and a career-best 10 touchdowns.

Smith, 25, admits he has had an inconsistent season.

“My season has been so up and down,” Smith said. “For me, I have very high expectations for myself. To me, it’s a big disappointment. That’s my personal opinion. I wasn’t as consistent as I wanted to be. I know it could’ve been better for various reasons. No. 1 reason being myself. I look at myself in my mirror. I guarantee you it won’t be like that next year or when we get in the playoffs.”
