Daryl Smith will remain in Baltimore.

Smith, the middle linebacker signed last year to fill the shoes of Ray Lewis, has agreed to a new contract with the Ravens.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, it’s a four-year, $16.1 million deal. That deal was reported less than an hour after the Titans and inside linebacker Wesley Woodyard agreed to a four-year, $16 million deal, so that appears to be the going rate for inside linebackers right now.

Smith was a second-round pick of the Jaguars in 2004 and spent nine seasons in Jacksonville before signing with the Ravens last year. In his first year in Baltimore he started all 16 games and had career highs in combined tackles (123), sacks (5.0) and interceptions (three).

Smith is the No. 59 player in our Free Agent Hot 100.
