The Baltimore Ravens have reached a verbal agreement on a contract extension with fifth-year cornerback Jimmy Smith.

Smith and Ozzie Newsome will meet with the media at 3:10 p.m. at the Under Armour Performance Center.

That's 10 minutes from now...

According to NFL sources, the deal will average $10 million annually. This extension locks up one of the top, young defensive backs in the league.

Stay tuned.

The podium is set. (Currently somebody is going back to obtain his teaching certificate to pursue a career in education.)
