The Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith has committed his future after signing a new four-year contract, that will keep him at the AFC North side until the end of 2019 season.
The 26-year-old was struggled to make an impact in his first two years, but established himself as one of the integral part of the defence during the 2013 campaign.

The Ravens have been impressed with the cornerback’s displays and reward him with a long-term deal, which is reportedly worth up to $48 million.
He told the club’s official website: “I’m tremendously happy. I plan on getting [Super Bowl] rings. For me it was never truly about being the highest paid corner.
“I knew I couldn’t be that on this team and be here just because of the talent already spread around. You have to pay other people, so I knew that going into it.”
Smith has recorded 140 tackles and 5 interceptions in his four years with the club.
