Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Steve Smith isn’t done yet. On Wednesday morning, Smith tweeted that he’d be back for the 2016 with the Ravens after initially saying he would be retiring after the 2015 season.
Wit the blessing of My Family, Friends & Fans!! 2016 Let's give'em Hell
This season, Smith caught 46 balls for 670 yards and three touchdowns for the Ravens. However, the 36-year old’s season ended prematurely on November 1st after he suffered a torn Achilles against the Chargers. Three weeks later, Joe Flacco tore his ACL and Justin Forsett broke his arm against the Rams, ending both of their seasons as well.
In his two seasons with Baltimore, Smith has 125 catches for 1,735 yards and nine touchdowns. With him, Forsett, and Flacco all healthy and returning in 2016, Ravens fans can hopefully look forward to some more success next year – though the Ravens are going to need better luck with their health across the board, not just with those three.
The team has a whopping 20 players on IR, with star linebacker Terrell Suggs, offensive tackle Eugene Monroe, and rookie first-round receiver Breshad Perriman, who didn’t play a game this year.
