Baltimore Ravens’ Terrell Suggs To Be A Cap Casualty In 2014?
One of the hottest topics to come from yesterday’s “State of the Ravens” presser was the imminent future of veteran LB Terrell Suggs. With Ray Lewis retiring this past year, Suggs is now the longest-tenured Baltimore Ravens player on the roster.
Suggs is a six-time Pro Bowl selection with 94.5 career sacks. Besides being the one of the best pass rushers the franchise has ever had, he is also known for being quite a colorful character. The question remains, however: with the second-highest cap hit on the team in 2014 ($12.4 million), are Suggs’ best years behind him? He did have 10 sacks this past season, but only two of those came in the second half.
GM Ozzie Newsome praised Suggs at the press conference, but also said he wouldn’t be afraid to let him walk if he is not willing to play ball. By cutting Suggs, the Ravens would free up around $8 million in cap space, which would be huge for a team that has cap issues from year to year. The biggest win-win for both parties would be an extension. By extending Suggs, it would likely keep him in Baltimore for the rest of his career and give the Ravens more cap flexibility.
My gut tells me that Suggs will put his ego aside and work on an extension with Newsome. Suggs has made his made his money already and loves being in Baltimore. I’m sure he would rather travel the path of Lewis than his former teammate Ed Reed. We’ll see what happens in the next couple of months.
