Is Steve Smith throwing jabs at his former quarterback with the Carolina Panthers?
Smith wasn’t sure where he was going end up once the Panthers released him, but he told CSN Baltimore that Joe Flacco’s ability to throw the deep ball played a huge factor in him signing with the Ravens.
“I’ve been an admirer of him, even just watching him in college at Delaware and then coming into the draft,” Smith said, via Clifton Brown of CSNBaltimore.com. “You know, as a wide receiver you always kind of look at the quarterbacks in the draft every year to see which guys (have potential) and what they say about whom. How I evaluate a quarterback – if he’s on the other hash and you run a comeback, where’s your ball placement? Is the ball hitting the guy at the ankles, or is he hitting him in the chest?
“He throws a lot of good, easy balls that you can snag (with) one hand. It makes it look good so I like those.”
