ESPN's Adam Schefter confirmed the report of former National Football League receiver Steve Smith.

Smith was released by the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday after two frustrating seasons.

So we look at other potential options for the Ravens, and one that really stands out is recently-released wide receiverTorrey Smith, whom the Ravens drafted in 2011 out of the University of Maryland.

Now the real question is...would you want to see #82 back in Baltimore?

Smith still has the ability to stretch the field as an "X" receiver.

Smith's best season came in 2013 when he caught 65 balls for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns for the Ravens. Smith never had less than 767 receiving yards, 92 targets, and 49 receptions. He's unlikely to draw another big deal after two bad seasons.

Arsene Wenger denies falling out with Alexis Sanchez
Sanchez though, whose contract expires in June 2018, will not be allowed to dictate his future, according to Wenger. However, Wenger explained his decision as a purely tactical one and claimed he did not regret his selection.

He signed with the San Francisco 49ers in March 2015.

Referring to members of the Ravens as "family", Smith still keeps in contact with many in the organization and has lunch with Joe Flacco. Smith's salary for next year is likely the reason the 49ers did not move Smith via trade. The Cleveland Browns, New York Giants, and Tennessee Titans also could be in the market for wideout help.

There are reports that the Niners are looking for a Smith replacement and some of the names include free agents Alshon Jeffery, Pierre Garcon and Terrelle Pryor.

Regardless of where he ends up, Smith is a home-run threat with tremendous speed.

It certainly wouldn't be a surprise for Smith to have a resurgent season in 2017.
