Based on what Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera said at the NFL owners meetings Wednesday, the Baltimore Ravens’ biggest challenge with wide receiver Steve Smith is getting him to take a break.
“One of the things in my opinion Steve needs to do is learn to tone things down,” Rivera told ESPN’s Panthers reporter David Newton. “He practices very hard. He’s going to give 100 percent. He’s going to challenge. At his age, his seniority, he has to handle himself.”
This is a good problem to have if you’re the Ravens. The average age of their receivers is 25, so it’s an added plus that Smith has this type of nonstop work ethic.

What looked like could be a second consecutive devastating offseason for the Baltimore Ravens hasn’t been so bad.
Sure,they have lost players like defensive lineman Arthur Jones and will likely lose safety James Ihedigbo, but they were able to hang on to offensive tackle Eugene Monroe.
They also made a couple of big moves, signing veteran wide receiver Steve Smith after he was released by the Carolina Panthers and trading for Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ center Jeremy Zutah.
Another player the Ravens may be interested in is one of their own free agents, defensive tackle Terrence Cody.
