    Ravens notified of trade request by Troy Smith


    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on December 28, 2009 2:09 PM ET

    Ravens quarterback Troy Smith seems like a thoughtful, talented young player that could have a long career in the NFL. But he could work on his timing.

    Earlier this month, Smith gained attention for his dance steps after his touchdown gave the Ravens a 48-3 lead over Detroit.

    Now his agent Ralph Cindrich is making it known through his Twitter account that Smith has notified the Ravens that he wants a trade, just six days before the Ravens try to clinch a playoff spot.

    "Ravens QB Troy Smith, Ohio State alum, native + Heisman winner wants playing time. Ravens notified. Will seek trade after play offs, SB run," Cindrich writes.

    Smith has shown promise when given the chance to play and was likely to open the 2008 as the Ravens starter over Joe Flacco if not for being sidelined by a rare form of tonsillitis.

    It's unclear what kind of market Smith would generate and if the Ravens would be motivated to trade a backup quarterback they trust.

    i've liked Troy since OSU, and i would like to see him go somewhere else and succeed because he's a talented player. but this is just terrible timingTroy. come on man, your team is in the middle of a playoff push.

    and he has no trade value.. how many teams have really seen him play?

    Is Troy Smith even good enough to request a trade? [​IMG]

    It's like a backup kicker asking to be traded kinda. There should be rules against things like that.

    Read it on espn.com today. Said that a possible reason that the agent threw out "OSU alum and native" was to try and get some attention from theBrowns. Take it for what it's worth.

    I honestly think he would do decent at least as a starter.

    I would be sick if the Browns picked him up. Nobody deserves that.

    People forget he was the starter before he got sick and Flacco got in by default. Troy has shown some flashes in limited playtime IMO.

    Have you seen the QB's around the league? Plenty of teams need a QB.

    Not to mention, I don't feel Troy got a legit shot at being a starter for the Ravens....they were too infatuated with Boller
    when he got there.

    [​IMG] @ Troy Smith requesting a trade.

    Dude should demand a trade to a CFL team...thats the only league where he has a shot of becoming a starting QB.
