Steve Smith Sr., the NFL’s favorite little asshole, is setting sail
after a 16-year career with the Carolina Panthers and Baltimore Ravens.
The 37-year-old, 5′ 9″ receiver announced yesterday that the Ravens’ final game of the season this Sunday against the Bengals would be his last. Smith will be remembered as a fiery player who overcame his small stature by talking big and playing bigger. When he wasn’t throwing shade at other players
or tweeting about touching his wife’s boob
, Smith could be found on the football field building a Hall of Fame career. Get a load of these career milestones:
14,697 receiving yards (7th all-time)
1,028 career receptions (12th all-time) *One of just 14 receivers with 1,000+ receptions
81 touchdowns receptions
5x Pro Bowl selections
First receiver since 1992 to win “Triple Crown” (lead league in receptions, yards, and touchdowns – 2005)
Love him or hate him, you can count on Smith getting a gold jacket after he retires.
We’ll just leave some of our favorite Steve Smith quotes right here:
“It sounds like he needs to wear some condoms.” – on Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who has four kids with three different women.
“I look in the eyes of all my victims before I take their lunch money.”
“I’m 35 years old, and I ran around them boys like they were school-yard kids.”
“Put your goggles on ‘cause there’s going to be blood and guts everywhere.”
