Veteran WR Torrey Smith Announces Retirement


Wide receiver Torrey Smith announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday. Below is the announcement via the Uninterrupted:

Smith was selected in the second-round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Ravens. After completing his rookie contract, he signed with the 49ers on a five-year, $40 million pact. San Francisco released him two years into the deal.

Smith joined the Eagles last season but was traded to the Panthers for cornerback Daryl Worley. Smith was in the final year of a three-year, $15 million contract when the Panthers cut him coming out of the preseason.

Smith, 30, finishes with 319 receptions for 5,414 yards and 41 touchdowns over 119 games that spanned eight seasons.
