Torrey Smith won't be back with the Ravens.

In a lengthy blog on his personal website, receiver Torrey Smith announced he won't be returning to the Ravens in 2015.

With Smith becoming a free agent this offseason, it appears the Ravens won't be able to match any kind of offer he will receive elsewhere. Therefore, Smith's career will continue elsewhere in a uniform that isn't purple and black.

He wrote:

"To the fans, it is tough to leave a city that I now call home. Y'all have embraced my family and me, and we truly appreciate it. Your support has been unreal and I will miss being able to make y'all proud. Although I may no longer be a member of the Baltimore Ravens, at heart, I will always be a Raven. What we accomplished together is timeless.

"I will be playing for a different organization, but I will remain committed to the City of Baltimore. I will continue to give back and help build a better future for our young men and women. MY COMMITMENT TO THE CITY IS FOR LIFE. This isn't a goodbye because I will still be around and Baltimore will continue to be my home in the offseason and when my career is done. I'm on to the next chapter of my life and football career, but I will see you guys later."

Smith also thanked the front office, coaching staff and teammates for the memories, which included a Super Bowl XLVII championship.

In four years, Smith totaled 213 catches for 3,591 yards and 30 touchdowns. His best season yardage wise came in 2013 when he totaled 1,128. He caught a single-season best 11 touchdowns in 2014.

Smith was a fan-favorite in Baltimore and will be missed by the city.
