Smith, 34, was selected by Baltimore in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He went on to become a mainstay in their secondary over the next decade-plus, making 128 total appearances for them and winning Super Bowl XLVII as a Raven in 2013.
Smith had also grown into a respected veteran leader for Baltimore and now will officially retire with them in poetic fashion.
