BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Steve Smith Sr. could hit a rather large milestone in Dallas on Sunday.
The Ravens wide receiver is just three receptions shy of hitting 1,000 career receptions and would become the 14th player in NFL history to achieve that milestone.READ MORE: Baltimore Police Seek Missing 38-Year-Old Robin Muscolino Tony Evans Jr. Charged With Allegedly Shooting, Wounding Woman In August, Baltimore Police Say
Last week, Steve Smith Sr. passed Reggie Wayne for eighth all-time receiving in yards. Smith has now notched 14,349 yards.
Smith said to ESPN at the beginning of the season, “I may catch that [1,000th pass] in my uniform, get in my car and go home,” Smith said with a smile. “Straight from there, drive all the way from M&T Bank [Stadium] straight to Charlotte, one shot.”MORE NEWS: Two Shot In Separate Baltimore Shootings Saturday, Including Boy, 14
Smith not only led the Ravens in targets and receiving yards in Week 10, but his 13.7 air yards per target also topped the team. As the primary target of Joe Flacco this season, Smith earns the strongest projection against a solid Dallas secondary that has allowed the 11th-fewest yards per game to receivers this season.
