Ravens re-sign veteran OT Andre Smith to a one-year contract

Ravens re-sign veteran OT Andre Smith to a one-year contract

The Ravens made their first signing of the off-season Thursday, re-signing offensive tackle Andre Smith to a one-year contract. 

Smith was signed before the team’s playoff game against the Titans, after Parker Ehinger went on injured reserve, but he wasn’t active for that game. 

Smith started the first five games at left tackle for the Bengals in 2019 before he was waived on Nov. 30. He’s an 11-year veteran in the league and 33-years-old. 

He spent the majority of his career with the Bengals, aside from one year stints with the Vikings and Cardinals.

The Ravens are set at tackle for both the immediate and long-term with Ronnie Stanley and Orlando Brown Jr. still on their rookie deals.

Smith’s re-signing appears to be just a depth move for a team that might have some questions to answer on the interior of its offensive line — pending Matt Skura’s health and Marshal Yanda’s potential retirement. 

Baltimore now has a host of tackles that it can plug in on either side with James Hurst and Smith under contract for 2020.

Watch Ravens receiver Willie Snead propose to his girlfriend

Watch Ravens receiver Willie Snead propose to his girlfriend

Willie Snead isn't afraid of big moments. Whether it's making a key catch on third down to keep a drive alive, or extending his block to spring a big run, he's always in the right place at the right time.

He's also not afraid to go to his knees to make a catch. Or, it turns out, to pop the question. 

Snead took advantage of his time at home to propose to his girlfriend, getting down on one knee during a Frozen-themed birthday party.

Much like his quarterback Lamar Jackson, Snead also seems to prefer the flip-flop look during the offseason, which has to be more comfortable than cleats. And of course, it would be easy to miss Snead in the video without his trademark hair.

The Ravens receiver caught 31 passes for 339 yards and five touchdowns in 2019, and is signed through the 2020 season.

Ravens make stadium lights red, white and blue to honor front-line workers

Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Ravens shifted from their signature purple stadium lights to show the front-line workers how much they appreciate what they're doing.

The incredible gesture is just one of many by the organization.

The Ravens and The Stephen and Renee Bisciotti Foundation combined to support four non-profits and have donated $1 million to help aid the fight against coronavirus, the team revealed in a statement on March 20. 

The four organizations are the Fund for Educational Excellence, the United Way of Central Maryland, the Baltimore Community Foundation and the Maryland Food Bank.

"We want to help those in our community who are most affected by the COVID-19 crisis," Ravens president Dick Cass said, according to a statement through the team. "We chose to donate through these four organizations because we are confident they will apply our funds quickly and directly to people in need.”
