Multiple media outlets are reporting that Ravens backup QB Troy Smith has signed his tender as a restricted free agent. Smith, a former Heisman Trophy winner who was drafted in the fifth round of the 2007 NFL draft, will earn $1.101 million in 2010.
Smith, who earlier in the offseason indicated that he would prefer to change teams in order to get a shot at a starting job, has appeared in 14 games in his three-year NFL career. In four games last season, Smith completed 5-of-9 passes for 24 yards with one interception.
Smith will back up Ravens starting QB Joe Flacco.
