On Tuesday, the Baltimore Ravens signed linebacker Roquan Smith to the richest linebacker deal in NFL history, inking him to a five-year, $100 million deal with up to $60 million in guarantees, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Of course, there were reactions from the news in the media world. The overwhelming majority have cited the signing of Smith as a great move in the way he’s helped transform the defense since becoming a Raven in Week 9. Others have questioned the price tag, and some have also cited the original trade from the Chicago Bears was a wise one from both sides, seeing as the Ravens wanted to acquire Smith and sign him long-term, while the Bears would never have signed him to such money and they gained draft capital from the deal.
