Yesterday, Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome said that they plan to keep Terrell Suggs off the free agent market for the 2009 season. If you’re like us, you’ve got to be wondering what the Ravens are doing and how they’re going to do it.
I know. “Have faith in Ozzie.” Right? He’s never steered us wrong.
The Ravens cut Chris McAlister two days ago adding 8 million dollars in cap room. If the Ravens tag Suggs it will cost them $10.2 million (120% of his contract last season). The last player that they tagged twice signed a seven year deal the following season. He was one of the highest paid cornerbacks in the game, his name was Chris McAlister.
The Ravens did sign a one year $1 million deal with defensive lineman Dwan Edwards and an undiscolused deal with Brandon McKinney.
