Baltimore longtime cornerback Jimmy Smith is set to retire Monday after 11 seasons in the NFL, all with the Ravens.
Smith, 34, finishes his career with 374 tackles, 74 passes defensed, 14 interceptions and three touchdowns in 128 games (90 starts). He was a first-round selection by the Ravens in the 2011 draft.
Smith won a Super Bowl with Baltimore in February 2013, making crucial stops to help secure the title over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.
Smith played in 10 games (two starts) in 2021. Smith was a free agent and had not played this season.
“It just wouldn’t make sense for me to go play for some random team,” Smith before the final game of his career against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Jan. 9. “This is home for me.”
