Veteran wide receiver Steve Smith announced this will be his last season recently. Like most vets, training camp and practice can be boring.
After doing the same thing for 15 years, you can imagine how it can be difficult to gain motivation at times. Earlier today, the Ravens and Eagles came together for a joint practice and Smith wasn’t feeling it at all.
“I’d rather be at home,” Smith said, via the Baltimore Sun. “Today’s my wife’s birthday, so I’m not at home. I’m over here doing this bull [crap] and missing my wife’s birthday. That’s my honest opinion. I’d rather be at home singing happy birthday to my wife, but I’m out here getting questioned to assess a rookie corner.”
How can you blame him?
