Baltimore Ravens: Life Will Sugg Without You, Terrell

Terrell Suggs  will play in Baltimore in 2019, as a member of the Arizona Cardinals.

Suggs, who was originally drafted No.10 overall in the 2003 NFL draft will be employed by a team other than the Baltimore Ravens for the first time in his professional career.

The dynamic edge rusher is returning his home state of Arizona where he played high school and college football to join the Arizona Cardinals.

Over his time in Baltimore, Suggs recorded 132.5 sacks including seven different seasons with double digits.

In his 229 career games, he forced 33 fumbles including seven in 2011. In that 2011 season, Suggs was named as defensive player of the year and made his lone All-Pro team.

Suggs will be horribly missed in Baltimore as, for the first time in Ravens history, the Ravens will be without Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, and now Suggs.

Suggs was a dynamic pass rusher. In six separate games, Suggs recorded three sacks, including three in a 2010 playoff game against Pittsburgh.

While some players were more effective than Suggs throughout their careers, very few could match the intensity with which sucks play on a down-to-down basis.

In the aftermath of Ray Lewis retiring, Suggs took up the mantle as the quintessential Ravens.

In his final season in Baltimore, Suggs was looked to as motivation for excellence in his defensive teammates, his offensive teammates, the fans, and the entire city of Baltimore as the Ravens push to make the playoffs.

In the last six seasons, Suggs epitomized Baltimore in his relentless work ethic and ability to improve and adapt to a new game.

Even into his final season, Suggs was a catalyst for the Ravens defense. He recorded seven sacks and had a defensive touchdown against Oakland.

While his sack numbers were the lowest of his career, Suggs played a vital role in helping the Ravens back to the playoffs for the first time since 2014.

Even as age begins to catch up with him, Suggs proved to be a reliable pass rusher in certain circumstances. Thus, he should be a menace on third down for the Cardinals.

In the history of the NFL, only 12 men can say they sacked the quarterback more times than Terrell Suggs.

Eight are in the Hall of Fame, where Suggs will almost certainly join after his career has its final appearance.

With the recent retirement of Julius Peppers, Terrell Suggs is the active leader in sacks. Currently, he is the only active member of the 100 sack club.

The man known affectionately as T-Sizzle will be welcomed with open arms if he were to eventually come back on a one-day contract to retire as a Raven.

Suggs has etched his name alongside other Baltimore legends, and fans across Baltimore will be waiting for the day that his number 55 jersey is plastered around M&T Bank Stadium with the likes of Lewis, Reed and Peter Boulware.
