    Suggs's ability to stop the srun and drop into coverage is really underrated. He doesn't get many sacks, but the guy gets a ton of pressure on QB's, good in coverage and great against the run and never missed a game since like 2003? So he is very reliable. He might not be good "stat" wise since he doesn't put up James Harrison type sacks, but he is worth 63 million to the Ravens defense. He does the little things that make him so good for them.

      Hm I always thought he'd make it back out to AZ somehow, but good for him. Can't underrate (or underpay apparently) elite rushbackers and Suggs has earned that title.

        Well when the absurdly overpaid contract is over he'll only be 33 so he could make his way out to AZ then!!!

        But anywho like him, glad to have him, but JESUS ******* CHRIST!!! I hope Ozzie hid some cap space somewhere because Ngata is gonna want Haynesworth money, and Gaither is gonna wanna be paid like a Top 5 LT which he will be considered after another dominant year. I feel like we're gonna lose one of those 2 guys and thats devastating.

          Suggs is now the highest paid LB in history and it just doesnt seem right to me. Like Shockey+Manning said, Ware will shatter that contract.

            and it's probably gonna be Gaither, seeing as how they easily let Jason Brown go. But, I think they'll find some way to keep em both. They know the true value of a pair of bookend franchise tackles and an elite massive DT, to keep blockers off there LB's. I just pray they won't lose 1.

              I'm very glad to have him locked up long-term. Although the price is a bit steep, you're going to have to expect to pay pass rushers a lot. Ware's deal is going to be ridiculous.

                  Its the highest paid today, but in 2 years it will be considered resonable. Ware is gonna cash ins soooooo much now.

                    So is Shawne Merriman. Suggs just screwed the rush backer market up, every single one of their values just jumped a little bit and A TON if you're an impact guy like Ware, Merriman (2010) or Woodley in 2011.

                    Now James Harrison's deal seems weak who "only" made 20 million guaranteed

                        I don't think it's very fair to say Suggs screwed things up. Consider Dwight Freeney and Jared Allen signed bigger deals, and as you say, Ware and Merriman will in all likelihood sign the biggest deals yet by the 2011 offseason (if there's no labor stopage).

                        Just the way the system and free agency proceeds, guys are getting bigger deals. Reggie Wayne signed a huge deal in 06 and now he's just about underpaid compared to some of the recent deals. It's how it is, a matter of escalation. The salary cap and floor increase, as does the revenue the league/teams make.

                        Now James Harrison's deal seems weak who "only" made 20 million guaranteed
                        I don't remember exactly, was Harrison really dealing from any position of strength? I want to say no, Pittsburgh did the unusual thing and rewarded him with some cash, when they normally let their outside rushers walk and just plug in the next guy.
                        Pugnacity, testosterone, truculence, and belligerence.

                          Glad Harrison got locked up before Suggs. Thats way to much money to give him. Suggs is a great player, but that kind of money is ridiculous.

                          I can only hope it keeps them from signing some of their other young talent.

                          Thanks to The Dynasty for the sig

                              If Suggs is worth that much to their defense, I wonder how much Ngata will get. He must be pretty happy right now.

                                I hope we can afford Ngata. I know Ozzie had Ngata and Gaither in mind when he made this deal w/ Suggs, I just hope we can sign Gaither and Ngata
