Torrey Smith says Patriots fans taunted him about his brother's death

Months after the death of his younger brother in a motorcycle accident, wide receiver Torrey Smith says New England Patriots fans taunted him through social media after the Ravens' AFC championship victory Sunday night.

The former Maryland wide receiver wrote this message on his verified Twitter account @TorreySmithWR: "Played a lot of games since my brothers death and I never received as many rude tweets after a win than Sunday...yet NE fans cry about class."

Tevin Jones died in September in Virginia the night before the Ravens' 31-30 regular-season win over the Patriots at M&T Bank Stadium.

Rejoining the team in Baltimore hours before kickoff after grieving with his family, an emotional Smith caught two touchdowns against the Patriots in an inspirational performance.

Smith is one of the most interactive Ravens players on Twitter, regularly talking with fans and other players.

Today, Smith posted a photograph of his white Super Bowl game jersey, which includes a Super Bowl XLVII logo and a patch that reads, 'Art,' to honor the late Ravens majority owner Art Modell, who died in September.
