|Ravens give Terrell Suggs contract extension |
|by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(2/18/14) The Ravens signed linebacker Terrell Suggs to a contract extension, reports the Baltimore Sun. The deal is worth four years and $28.5 million.
"It's just really a great day for me, and I'm truly flattered," said Suggs on Monday. "I'm honored that I get to be a Raven for life."
The new contract, which extends through 2018, includes an $11 million signing bonus and $16 million in guaranteed money. It also cut Suggs' salary cap figure to $7.8 million, down from the original figure of $12.4 million under his previous six-year, $62.5 million deal, which was set to expire following the 2014 season.
|Report: 40 percent chance Ravens cut Terrell Suggs |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(2/9/14) Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, 31, counts $12.4 million against the salary cap in 2014, and NFL.com estimates there's a 40 percent chance he'll be released. Suggs had nine sacks and 60 tackles in the first half of last season before fading badly down the stretch.
He had one sack and 20 tackles in the last eight games.
|James Ihedigbo: Terrell Suggs might be fit in Cleveland |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/31/14) Ravens safety James Ihedigbo has speculated that teammate Terrell Suggs could reunite with fellow outside linebacker Paul Kruger with the Browns next season.
Suggs' contract expires after next season. He is due to earn $7.8 million in 2014 and would represent a $12.4 million cap hit for his team. His performance down the stretch this season is a concern, leading to speculation that he could be cut to save the team money.
Ihedigbo believes defensive-minded Browns coach Mike Pettine, who served as a Ravens defensive coach from 2002 to 2008, will seek to snap up Suggs.
"You gotta think Mike Pettine got the head-coaching job in Cleveland," he told the team website "Are they going to come in and try to get Terrell Suggs, and put him right opposite Paul Kruger like he was before?"
The Browns are still looking to ramp up their outside pass rush. Kruger and rookie Barkevious Mingo proved disappointing in 2013. But Suggs also struggled, managing just two sacks in the last eight games after posting eight in the first eight games.
|Ravens could allow Terrell Suggs test free agency |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/8/14) Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, who has led the Ravens in sacks in each of his last three healthy seasons, could be allowed to walk in free agency, the Baltimore Sun has speculated.
General manager Ozzie Newsome gave that indication on Thursday when asked about Suggs when he said he's not afraid to let good players leave and that he will do what's best for his future Ravens teams.

|Could it be that Terrell Suggs is slowing down? The Ravens don't think so -- they gave him a contract extension with $11 million guaranteed in February. And the stats suggest he's still productive as he posted 10 sacks and tied a career-high with 80 total tackles last season. Where Suggs loses out in Fantasy is in not having enough tackles. Linebackers like Dannell Ellerbe, Kevin Burnett and Erin Henderson all wound up scoring more Fantasy points than Suggs in leagues where tackles count. It's unfair, but that's how Fantasy works sometimes. We have no problem touting Suggs as a No. 3 Fantasy linebacker in leagues that reward tackles and a solid No. 2 option in leagues that don't. Expect him to get taken just after the halfway point in drafts.
