Description: Steve Smith is now a member of the Ravens. He signed a three-year, $11 million contract with Baltimore on Friday, one day after being released by the Panthers.
Insight: Smith had just 745 yards and four scores on 64 catches (11.6 ypc) in 15 games last season and enters a passing offense that isn't very prolific. He'll serve as the third option for QB Joe Flacco behind Torrey Smith and Dennis Pitta.

Description: The Panthers officially released their longtime No. 1 wideout Steve Smith on Thursday.
Insight: The 34-year-old's career was revitalized when Carolina drafted QB Cam Newton and he put up 2,568 yards and 11 touchdowns on 152 catches in 2011-12, but he had just 745 yards and four scores on 64 catches (11.6 ypc) in 15 games last season. The Ravens are the favorite to land the veteran, but he's unlikely to carry much fantasy value as a third option behind Torrey Smith and Dennis Pitta. As we just saw for years in Houston, new Ravens offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak's offense heavily features the tight end and No. 1 receiver but not the No. 2 wideout.

Insight: Carolina is trying to trade him, though that could be difficult given Smith's age (34) and his $7 million salary. We're guessing he'll be cut sometime in the next few days. When that happens, look for the Buccaneers and Raiders to be among the teams interested.

Insight: It appears Smith's 14-year tenure in Carolina may be coming to an end. If teams are hesitant to trade for Smith, there's a good chance the Panthers will wind up cutting him. Smith is only a year removed from a 1,000-yard season and could make an immediate impact if he finds the right situation.

Description: Carolina wideout Steve Smith (knee) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers, according to profootballtalk.com.
Insight: Smith missed Week 17 after spraining his PCL the week before. He suffered a setback in practice Thursday and will probably be used as a decoy Sunday. Greg Olsen, Brandon LaFell and Ted Ginn will have to step up.

Description: Carolina wideout Steve Smith suffered a setback at practice on Thursday. Smith returned to practice Wednesday after missing Week 17 with a sprained PCL. SOURCE: Jonathan Jones, Charlotte Observer
Insight: Smith said he felt about 57 percent after saying Wednesday that he was at 71 percent. If he does play against the Niners this weekend, he'll probably be used as a decoy. Expect Greg Olsen and Brandon LaFell to be Cam Newton's primary receivers on Sunday.

Description: Panthers receiver Steve Smith is expected to practice on a limited basis Wednesday, according to profootballtalk.com.
Insight: Smith sat out Week 17 with a sprained PCL, but he has vowed to play in the divisional round against the 49ers. Smith finished the season with just 745 yards and four touchdowns on 64 catches in 15 games, but he's still the Panthers' best receiving option even at age 34.
 
1/6/2014 12:09:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Steve Smith did not play in Week 17 due to a sprained PCL in his left knee and is questionable for Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff against San Francisco.
Insight: Coach Ron Rivera hopes to have Smith back at practice this week. Smith finished the season with just 745 yards and four touchdowns on 64 catches in 15 games, but he's still the Pathers' best receiving option even at age 34.
 
12/27/2013 1:30:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Steve Smith will not play in Week 17 due to a sprained PCL, according to Steve Reed of the Associated Press.
Insight: Smith will finish the season with just 745 yards and four touchdowns on 64 catches (11.6 ypc) in 15 games. The Panthers had difficulty moving the ball through the air in Week 16 after Smith went down, but the Falcons' defense has been horrible this season. Carolina can lock down a first-round bye with a win against Atlanta, giving Smith a chance to have three weeks off to heal before returning.

12/22/2013 2:21:00 PM
Description: Carolina wideout Steve Smith is officially out for the rest of the game against the Saints on Sunday.

12/22/2013 2:11:00 PM
Description: Carolina wideout Steve Smith returned to Sunday's game for one play before limping off and going straight back to the locker room, according to Jeff Darlington of NFL.com.
Insight: Smith suffered a non-contact left knee injury in the first quarter when Cam Newton overthrew him on a slant. He's probably done for the day after attempting to return in the second.

10/24/2013 2:22:00 PM
Description: Panthers receiver Steve Smith was added to the injury report after missing a couple of days worth of practice and only being a limited participant in Wednesday's practice but he is expected to play Thursday against Tampa Bay.
Insight: What's more concerning is a 10.5 ypr average, the lowest of his career except for the 2004 season when he played just one game. He's no better than an RB2 these days, but with all the teams on bye in Week 8 he's worthy of a start.

Description: Panthers receiver Steve Smith caught five balls for 69 yards and a touchdown in Week 7 against the Rams.
Insight: Smith has a career average of 14.7 yards per reception, but he's not making big plays this season. He's averaging 10.5 ypc this year, and his 19-yard catch Sunday tied a season high.
 
12/9/2012 6:31:00 PM
Description: Panthers wideout Steve Smith reached 100 yards for the second straight game Sunday after doing it once in the previous nine.
Insight: Smith only has two scores this season but at least he's back to being a starting quality fantasy receiver. He finished with 109 yards on seven receptions Sunday against the Falcons.
 
12/2/2012 6:58:00 PM
Description: Panthers wideout Steve Smith captured a season-high 120 receiving yards Sunday in a loss to Kansas City.
