The Philadelphia Eagles pulled off the stunning upset in Super Bowl LII against the New England Patriots last Sunday, 41 - 33. Several former Ravens players were apart of the Eagles team, most notably though, was wide receiver Torrey Smith.
Smith was a second-round draft pick for the Baltimore Ravens in 2011 and a key contributor to helping the 2012 Ravens team win Super Bowl XLVII.
Although a fan favorite both on and off the field, Smith was not re-signed by the Ravens following the 2014 season. He instead signed with the San Francisco 49ers. His best days were definitely in Baltimore, but he has still remained a solid deep threat for offenses.
His most recent stop was with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, who would go on to win the Super Bowl, giving Smith his second ring.
While on “The Lounge” podcast, hosted by Ryan Mink and Garrett Downing of Baltimoreravens.com, Smith compared the 2012 Ravens team to the current Super Bowl winning Eagles.
“I knew from day one, when I was in that locker room, that this has it,” Smith said. “This is what it’s supposed to look like, this is what it’s supposed to feel like, and I know that from being in Baltimore.”
He talked about how both teams had a good mix and balance of veterans and young players.
He went on to say, “When you get good guys together, who care about each other ... really care about the team’s success ... understand that everything they want individually will come with the team’s success ... it was huge.”
The full interview with Torrey Smith will available on Baltimoreravens.com when the latest episode of “The Lounge” podcast drops on Thursday, February 8.
