Terrell Suggs Is Returning To Baltimore Ravens
Terrell Suggs is returning to the Baltimore Ravens.
Suggs, 37, was waived by the Arizona Cardinals on Friday.
The legendary linebacker is now up for grabs to any NFL team that may want to claim him – but there is a catch.
Though he is eligible to be claimed on waivers at 4 pm ET Monday, former Cardinals’ pass rusher Terrell Suggs will strongly consider not reporting to his new claiming team if it is anyone other than the Baltimore Ravens, per league sources.https://t.co/MuIrLAPdbv

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Suggs does not want to report to any team other than Baltimore.
The problem with that is where the Ravens are on the waiver claim list. Currently 31 other teams have a better shot of landing Suggs than they do.
Suggs would get approximately $350,000 from any team claiming him, but that does not seem to matter. He just wants to return to the team that helped turn him into a legend.
It probably helps that Baltimore also looks like it has its best shot at a championship in years.
Thus far this year Suggs has recorded 5.5 sacks, so clearly he could be of assistance to any NFL defense that adds him.
Will that defense ultimately be Baltimore’s?
We’ll find out for sure within the next few days.
