Report: Terrell Suggs unlikely to report to any team but Ravens
Terrell Suggs is going to cause some difficulties if any NFL team but one claims him on waivers, according to a report.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday that Suggs, who was surprisingly waived by the Cardinals on Friday, will strongly consider not reporting to any team that claims him unless it’s the Baltimore Ravens.
This presents a significant difficulty. The Ravens have the last waiver claim right now, meaning 31 other teams will have the chance to claim Suggs first. It remains to be seen if Suggs’ threat will be enough to scare away all 31 of them.
Suggs would be due roughly $350,000 from any claiming team, but the money is not a significant factor to him and he simply wants to return to Baltimore. Suggs must be claimed by 4 p.m. ET on Monday.
The Ravens didn’t retain Suggs as a free agent last offseason, and he didn’t seem to want to leave. With 5.5 sacks on the season, he can clearly still help a team, but he doesn’t want to help just any team. Whether those teams respect his issues — or one jumps in and claims him just to prevent him from landing with a Super Bowl contender in Baltimore — remains to be seen.
