Suggs and Ravens Still Far Apart on a Deal

As the Ravens come back from their bye week and now find themselves one full game back of the Steelers in the AFC North, the team is also trying to plan for the future, and that future could very well be without LB/DE Terrell Suggs.  The team continues to negotiate with Suggs, but the Baltimore Sun today is reporting that the sides are still very far apart on a long-term deal.

The paper is reporting that the team would like to pay Suggs about $8 million per season, which includes the signing bonus over the life of the contract. Suggs wants a deal in the $9 million to $10 million range.  Right now Suggs is going to find it hard to have any leverage in the deal due to the fact that he has not had that great of a 2007 with just a pair of sacks.  Likely the talks will continue, and at some point it will be up to Suggs if he wants to come down and accept a deal to stay in B-More.
