Torrey Smith Defends Jimmy Smith

It has already apparent that WR Torrey Smith is a very high character guy, this was especially made clear this morning when Torrey interjected his opinion on teammate Jimmy Smith when he was Jimmy was questioned on his character and history of off the field problems. After Jimmy answered this question, a reporter began asking Torrey a question about a different topic, but the wideout politely stopped him. He had something he wanted to say:

"Going off what he said, I’ve had an opportunity to know Jimmy myself," Torrey said. "He’s a great guy. The way the media tries to portray him, I feel like that’s not him. He’s a great guy, he’s down to earth. Like he said, his things are in the past so I feel like people should focus more so on what he’s going to do from this day forward."

Torrey and Jimmy got to know each other when they came to Baltimore at the same time for visits to the Ravens’ Owings Mills, Maryland facility. They roomed with each other and spoke for a few hours about football and other topics.

"We’ll definitely have some fun," Torrey said with a smile. "I feel like they brought us in both to help make an impact and we’re going to push each other to help us be the best players we can be."

I for one, am excited to have such high talented and high character guys wearing purple and black.
