Steve Smith already beating Adam Schefter to National Football League news

The 49ers have informed Smith of his release according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area.

After a successful stint with the Ravens, the 28-year-old receiver signed a five-year, $40 million contract with the 49ers. By releasing Smith, the 49ers will save $4.8 million on the cap.

On Monday afternoon, he tweeted that the San Francisco 49ers will release wide receiver Torrey Smith, allowing him to hit free agency when the "legal tampering" period opens Tuesday afternoon.

Now the real question is...would you want to see #82 back in Baltimore?

Among the 95 receivers with at least 45 targets last season, Smith ranked fifth-worst in Reception Net Expected Points per target.

Smith's best season came in 2013 when he caught 65 balls for 1,128 yards and four touchdowns for the Ravens.

Now, just months into his retirement, Smith Sr. has suddenly become a bona fide NFL Insider - already with two big scoops under his belt.

A reunion between Smith and quarterback Joe Flacco would be a attractive thing.

Smith had been linked to the Eagles before the National Football League trade deadline last season while the team desperately searched for wide receiver help. Last November, the Eagles were close to acquiring Smith via trade, but the deal never happened. Torrey Smith could end up being a decent discounted pickup for a team looking for a deep threat. The former second round pick caught 19 touchdown passes during his three years in College Park.
