The Baltimore Ravens are looking to add a new wide receiver, and Torrey Smith knows what kind of receiver they need.

From the Ravens’ website:

"Top target Torrey Smithis excited about the idea of adding another pass catcher to the mix, and identified a “move-the-chains guy” as the type of receiver the Ravens are missing.“That’s probably someone that we need on a consistent basis,” Smith said during a community event Thursday at Dickey Hill Elementary and Middle School. “Another weapon like that is just another person that Joe [Flacco] can rely on.”"

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said he knows the type of receiver he wants, though he hasn’t given any details like Smith.

“We will try to acquire – I already know this and I won’t share it with you – I think we’ve identified the type of receiver that we want,” Newsome said.

Smith isn’t worried about the Ravens adding another receiver and says “the more, the merrier.”

“The more, the merrier,” Smith said. “The more help you can have, no matter what position it is, that’s only going to make us stronger as a unit. Whoever we bring in, whether it’s a free agent or a rookie, we’ll welcome him with open arms.”
