Free agent wide receiver Torrey Smith may not be without a home team for long, according to this recent report.

Smith was released by the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, which did not come as too much of a surprise. The 28-year-old receiver was unfortunately part of a 49ers offense that struggled to gain much traction during both of Smith’s seasons with the team.

He put up a total of 930 yards and just seven touchdowns, catching passes from a combination of Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert during his two-year stint in Northern California.

A reunion between Smith and quarterback Joe Flacco would be a beautiful thing. The Ravens definitely need some receiving help after the departure of Steve Smith Sr. this year. As for the younger Smith, he averaged 897.7 yards and 7.5 touchdowns per season during his previous four-year tenure in Baltimore.

Let’s see  Smith get back to having fun. What better of a fit than the team that originally drafted him back in 2011?
