Report: Broncos interested in Ravens linebacker Daryl Smith

Could the Broncos become a factor with Daryl Smith?

The Ravens began the offseason two-for-two with its priorities.

First, they locked up tight end Dennis Pitta to a five-yer, $32 million contract. On Tuesday, the Ravens signed left tackle Eugene Monroe to a five-year, $37.5 million deal. Can they make it three-for-three with their priorities and re-sign linebacker Daryl Smith?

As of now, it appears the two sides are off a bit on what he deserves to get paid.


Smith should be a priority but the Colts' way-too-big contract to D'Qwell Jackson, a four-year, $22 million deal, probably messed things up for the Ravens. With that setting the bar, the Ravens may not want to trend in that direction with a player that turns 32 next month.

But if the Ravens truly want to bring back Smith, they'll need to act soon. According to The Denver Post, the Broncos are interested in Smith as their middle linebacker. After Smith's 2013 season, he'll certainly have some suitors.

Smith finished his first season in Baltimore with a team-best 123 tackles and franchise-record 19 pass deflections.
