Former Baltimore Ravens receiver, Derrick Mason believes that quarterback Joe Flacco should move heaven and earth to get Steve Smith to sign for the Ravens.

In a series of tweets today Mason, who played for the Ravens between 2005 and 2010 said:

"Joe needs to be in Ozzie (Newsome, Ravens GM) office giving him every reason why SteveSmith needs to be a raven then he needs to reach out to SteveSmith and convince him why he should come to Baltimore! It's time to show your leadership Joe and demand your weapons!!"

Joe Flacco was given a six-year, $120 million contract in 2013 after he led the Ravens to a Super Bowl win but struggled last year without several key targets.

Anquan Boldin was traded to the San Francisco 49ers and tightend, Dennis Pitta missed large parts of the season with a hip injury.

However, Pitta was signed to an extension this offseason and with the hiring of offensive co-ordinator, Gary Kubiak, the Ravens offense could take off again.

Steve Smith was released by the Carolina Panthers after it became clear that the team were unwilling to pay Smith the salary he was due. The Baltimore Ravens have been viewed as a favourite to sign Smith but no agreement has been reached as of yet.

Only time will tell if Flacco will get another valuable target in Smith this offseason.
