The 7-year-old boy tortured by the reality of NFL free agency and his father's harsh presentation of Smith Smith's release from the organization got a great surprise this morning. Now a member of the Ravens, Smith crashed the family's appearance on Good Morning America, where he gave the boy, Gavin, a Ravens jersey and a big hug.
