49ers sign Torrey Smith to five-year deal

In what’s probably the first good news of the offseason, the 49ers have signed former Ravens wideout Torrey Smith to a five-year, $40M deal including $22M in guaranteed money, according to Adam Schefter.

While this signing has been rumored to be on the horizon for days, the opening of the 2015 league year made the move official. The 49ers now have a likely replacement for Michael Crabtree, as well as a legitimate deep threat at the wide receiver position.

In four seasons with Baltimore, Smith caught 213 passes for 3,591 yards and 30 touchdowns, 11 of which came in 2014.

Smith will rejoin his former Ravens teammate Anquan Boldin in Santa Clara, and the two should complement each other quite nicely. In their two seasons together, Smith and Boldin combined for 3,504 yards and 22 touchdowns.
