Troy Smith won’t cost much

Restricted free agent QB Troy Smith was tendered a qualifying offer by his team the Baltimore Ravens, but it’s not at a level where some NFL teams consider making him an offer.

Smith’s agent confirmed that the quarterback received the low tender from the Ravens to retain his rights.

Some NFL teams in desperate need for a quarterback will strongly consider putting together an offer sheet for Smith, knowing the only compensation they’d have to surrender if Baltimore chose not to match would be a fifth-round pick. Smith is only six-feet tall, but has a strong arm and mobility.

He’s appeared in 14 games in his three-year NFL career with three touchdowns and one INT.
