    Default Terrell Suggs

    So I know a lot of us want to get Suggs in FA. I read this on ESPN's rumor page, and it makes it sound like he may not leave the Ravens. He almost sounds as if he would take a pay cut (or at least take much less than he could make elsewhere) to stay there. Here is the article:

    Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs wants to stay with the team, and he also wants the other two potential free agent linebackers, Ray Lewis and Bart Scott, to be retained as well. The solution reported by the Baltimore Sun is for all three to give a "hometown discount".
    Over the weekend, Suggs told Sirius NFL Radio that he was confident he'd be able to reach a new deal with the team, saying, "If they treat me fair, then it shouldn't be a problem. I have all the faith in the world that they'll do that. I think they'll address all three of us with what they see as fair. I think if all three of us can come in the middle and form an agreement, then we shouldn't have a problem."

    Suggs also said during the interview that it'd be strange to play without the teammates with whom he's lined up for so long: "To line up and see somebody [different] behind me in my case, or lining up seeing somebody different in Bart's case, line up with somebody next to you and it's not one of the greatest defensive players of all time, it's going to be kind of weird. Like I told Bart, he's been like a big brother since I got there. This was his seventh year [and] my sixth. It's been me, him and Adalius Thomas from Day One. We've already seen one of our other brothers walk. We really don't want to see too many more of us walk away from the city of Baltimore."

    In the press conference following the Ravens' loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the AFC Championship game, when asked about playing somewhere aside from Baltimore, Lewis said, "That's one side of my career I don't deal with, because I don't do that. I play the game for the love of the game, I don't get caught up in the business side of all of that stuff." Previous rumors have listed the Dallas Cowboys as a possible destination for Lewis should he not re-sign with Baltimore.
    I hope this isnt true, because it would mean we couldnt get him and have to probably go for someone in the draft or maybe Peppers. I think peppers is a bit older for my taste, though.

    Is that really what he said? I think it would make sense for him to still play DE in a 3-4. His size would be great at that. But we'll see when he ends up. I'll say that he goes to a team to play DE in a 4-3 defense.

    Yeah.

    basically he saw the seasons Ware and James Harrison had in the 3-4 OLB role and wants to do the same now. He definitely wouldn't want to be a 3-4 DE. Those guys don't get the big sack totals or the glory. They do the dirty work, but the OLBs are the ones who fill up the stat sheet.

    he really is a perfect 4-3 DE. Not sure why a top 2 or 3 DE would want to change positions...
