Steve Smith brings completely different things to Ravens says Anquan Boldin

The Baltimore Ravens bolstered their wide receiver group adding Carolina Panthers veteran Steve Smith. A lot of fans were quick to say Smith was filling a void created by Anquan Boldin when he left the team, but Boldin says that isn’t necessarily the case.

“We’re two different players,” Boldin said, via the Ravens’ website. “I think he’ll tell you that as well. We bring two completely differently things to the table. I think the thing that both of us do have is we want to win, bottom line, and we’ll do whatever it takes to do that.”

Smith also downplayed the comparison when he met with the media.

We play similar games; we want to win and we go all-out,” Smith said of Boldin. “But we’re also individuals, and so I’m not here to replace anyone. I’m here to be myself.

“I’m Steve Smith, and what I bring to the table as a Baltimore Raven, I have to earn that, and my time on the field will display what I bring to the table.”
