Former Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith is signing a five-year, $40 million contract with the San Francisco 49ers, according to league sources. The deal includes $22 million guaranteed.

The Baltimore Sun reported Smith's impending departure on Sunday and sources said a contract with the 49ers was a "done deal," barring any unforeseen snags.

Nothing went awry, and Smith will now join former Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin with the 49ers. Boldin played a role in recruiting Smith to the 49ers, according to a source. Smith also has a connection to 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, a fellow former Maryland football standout.

The Ravens never came close to a deal with Smith in contract negotiations last year and were unable to compete financially to hold onto him.

Selected in the second round of the NFL draft in 2011, Smith hasn't made a Pro Bowl. He got off to a slow start last season and finished with 49 receptions for 767 yards and a career-high 11 touchdowns as Steve Smith emerged as the Ravens' top wide receiver.

Smith had 213 receptions for 3,591 yards, 30 touchdowns and averaged 16.9 yards per catch in his four years with the Ravens.
