Steve Smith Brings Leadership and Talent to Ravens

OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) -- Steve Smith has played 13 NFL seasons, loves to talk about football and craves winning.
The qualities make the veteran wide receiver a welcome addition to a Baltimore Ravens locker room that last year sorely missed the leadership of Ray Lewis and Anquan Boldin.
Fourth-year receiver Torrey Smith says his new teammate "brings something completely different than anyone else and we can all learn from him."
Steve Smith signed with the Ravens as a free agent in March, just one day after his release by the Carolina Panthers. Since his arrival, the 35-year-old has provided guidance to younger players and become a reliable target for quarterback Joe Flacco.
