Terrell Suggs released by Cardinals
Terrell Suggs played for a team other than the Baltimore Ravens for the first time in his career this season, but he will not finish out the year with that team.
Arizona Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury announced on Friday that the team is releasing Suggs, which means he will go on waivers until Monday. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that it is unclear if Suggs wants to continue playing.
A late-season roster surprise: Cardinals are releasing veteran pass-rusher Terrell Suggs today, per source. The 37-year-old Suggs now will go on waivers.
It’s also uncertain whether the seven-time Pro-Bowl OLB will want to continue playing. But he will be on waivers till Monday.

Suggs, 37, had 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in 13 games with Arizona. He could make for an intriguing pickup for a team that is heading to the playoffs, and he is certainly plenty familiar with the Ravens. He signed a two-year, $10 million contract with the Cardinals prior to the season, so any team that claimed him would have to absorb that.
It’s unclear if Baltimore would want Suggs back or if he would want to return, but he had an emotional farewell message for the team when he left last offseason. The pass-rusher had 132.5 career sacks and seven Pro Bowl appearances during his time with the Ravens and helped them win a Super Bowl.
