OWINGS MILLS, Md.,-The Baltimore Ravens have agreed to a three year deal with wide receiver Steve Smith on Friday.

Smith, 34, who ranks 19th overall in receptions, was let go by the Carolina Panthers after 13 seasons this past Thursday.

Steve Smith was contacted by five teams, however his visit to the Ravens proved to be a one way trip as he signed a three-year contract worth $11.5 million and a signing bonus of $3.5 million.

The four other teams that were going for Smith were the Patriots, Chargers, Seahawks and Redskins.

According to the Ravens official website, the Ravens hope to have Smith fill the void left by the trade that sent Anquan Boldin to the 49ers last off-season.

When asked if things worked for Steve Smith in Baltimore, he said that "I reall felt like after sitting here that this is the place that I felt would fit me and they convinced me that I would fit in here very well."

Steve Smith will get a chance to see his old team once again as the Baltimore Ravens will host the Carolina Panthers this season at M&T Bank Stadium.
