"I truly believe you can never have too many horses in the stable," Smith said Thursday, via The Baltimore Sun. "You can never have too many fast cars in your garage."
Baltimore isn't the only city stocking the stable with new horses.
Let's take a look at the five most-improved offenses since the end of the 2013 season:
1. Washington Redskins
2. Baltimore Ravens
A disappointment coming off a Super Bowl victory and a bank-breaking contract, Joe Flacco spent the majority of last season throwing to washed-up veterans and slippery-mitted fringe roster players. Now he has the luxury not only of a healthy Dennis Pitta, but also a chain-mover who has been one of the best receivers of his generation and a second tight end for Gary Kubiak's offense. It also helps that left tackle Eugene Monroe will be protecting Flacco's blindside for the entire season.
3. New York Jets
Vick adds legitimacy to Marty Mornhinwig's offense. The QB's injury history is less of a concern with Geno Smith as a capable backup with potential. Don't be surprised if Decker produces the best statistical season by a Jets wide receiver since Laveranues Coles' glory days. Ford is an intriguing flier if he's finally over foot and knee injuries. I can't get this dominant 2010 performance out of my mind, when Ford racked up 306 all-purpose yards in an overtime victory -- followed up by 316 yards two weeks later.
4. Oakland Raiders
Baby steps. Greg Olson's offense still boasts no Pro-Bowl caliber players in the prime of their careers, but Schaub is a theoretical upgrade -- even if the expectations of Jones-Drew and coach Dennis Allen are downrightfanciful. The offensive line finally has been solidified, and Jones immediately becomes the Raiders' most-accomplished wide receiver in nearly a decade.
5. Indianapolis Colts
For fit and value, Nicks was one of our favorite signings of the past month. That's only a small reason for the Colts' placement on this list, though. The offense also is welcoming back No. 1 receiver Reggie Wayne, future Pro-Bowl tight endDwayne Allen, veteran running back Ahmad Bradshaw, young tailback Vick Ballard and starting guard Donald Thomas -- all of whom missed at least half of last season.
