Owings Mills, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - The Baltimore Ravens re-signed linebacker Daryl Smith to a four-year contract on Friday.

The deal is worth $16.1 million, according to reports.

Smith had a career year in 2013 with 123 tackles, five sacks, three interceptions, two forced fumbles and 18 pass breakups. It was his first year with the Ravens.

"There are a lot of smiles around the building today after we got a commitment from Daryl Smith to stay a Raven," Baltimore general manager Ozzie Newsome said. "He fills a need for us at a high level."

The 32-year-old Smith spent the first nine years of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars, who selected him in the second round of the 2004 draft.

Smith has 801 tackles, 26 1/2 sacks, 54 pass breakups, nine interceptions, 11 forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries in 142 career games with the Jaguars and Ravens.

The Ravens also re-signed safety Jeromy Miles to a one-year contract. He spent most of his time on special teams last years.
