According to ESPN.com, the Baltimore Ravens have signed former Philadelphia Eagle tight end LJ Smith to a one year $1.5 million contract. This does not bode well for the future of current Ravens tight end, Todd Heap, who has not performed well in the past year or so.
Does this change whether or not the Ravens wil look at a tight end in April's draft? I think not, as Smith's contract is just fr one year. However, the chance that they use their first pick for a TE has diminished somewhat. Now more than ever, it is looking that they will be setting up to take a WR with the 26th pick of the first round.
