Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith believes that there is no pressure on the team to defend the Super Bowl title.

Torrey Smith has insisted that there is no pressure on the Baltimore Ravens heading into the 2013 NFL season.

The NFC North side go into the season as the reigning Super Bowl champions knowing that no team has won back-to-back titles since 2004.

The wide receiver told NFL Total Access: "I feel like there's no pressure at all, because nobody expected us to be there in the first place, so the defending title thing is kind of overblown.

"We're trying to get number two and for us to get number two, we gotta worry about Tampa Bay in our first pre-season game, before that, the 25th [of July] when we come back, our practice, whatever [coach John] Harbaugh has in store for us. We're grinding, getting ready for that."

The Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl in February.
