You had to have a feeling that Steve Smith would eventually get into a scuffle in practice.

He has a history of that, dating back to his days in Carolina. Well, on Wednesday, Smith got into a brief shoving match with cornerback Lardarius Webb, according to multiple reports.

As you can see, Crockett Gillmore and Timmy Jernigan got into it too, but that just doesn't seem as exciting.

Of course all will be well with these two moving forward you'd think. But for Ravens fans, it's good to see that kind of energy in June, when players could easily check out and go through the motions.
