Ea­gles re­port­edly want to trade for Tor­rey Smith

Baltimore Sun - - SPORTS -

For­mer Ravens wide re­ceiver Tor­rey Smith (Mary­land) is re­port­edly the sub­ject of trade talks between the San Fran­cisco 49ers and Philadel­phia Ea­gles. Adeal would pro­vide the Ea­gles with a le­git­i­mate deep threat for rookie quar­ter­back Car­son Wentz. Smith, 27, who re­ceived a five-year $40 mil­lion con­tract from San Fran­cisco be­fore last sea­son, had ca­reer lows of 33 re­cep­tions, 663 re­ceiv­ing yards and four touch­downs in 2015, and he’s on pace for lower num­bers this sea­son. With the 49ers on a bye this week, Smith will be at Dun­bar tonight for a panel con­ver­sa­tion on is­sues fac­ing young black males in cities.
