Terrell Suggs Up for ESPY as Best NFL Player

The ESPY for Best NFL Player may be going home to a Raven in 2012, as the Baltimore Sun reports that Terrell Suggs is up for the award.

Terrell Suggs may miss part, or possibly all, of the 2012 NFLseason with a torn Achilles tendon, but the praise for his play in 2011 continues to roll in.

The Ravens defensive end has been nominated for the ESPY for Best NFL Player. He joins Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Saints quarterback Drew Brees, Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson and Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on the ballot.

The winner will be revealed July 11 during the 20th ESPYS. The Arizona State product had 14 sacks a season ago and was named AP Defensive Player of the Year for his efforts. He started all 16 games for Baltimore, racking up 70 tackles, two interceptions and seven forced fumbles, a defensive player has never won the ESPY for Best NFL Player.
