It was a bitter and hard to watch defeat for the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday in Pittsburgh, as the team blew a 10-point fourth quarter lead in losing to the Steelers 31-27, ending the dreams of the postseason and a possible division title.
With the season now all but over minus one game against the Bengals Sunday in Cincinnati that will mean nothing, questions are going to start popping up more and more about veteran players and their future.
One player who stated all along that 2016 would be his last season is that of wide out Steve Smith Sr., who returned to the team after he was suffered a torn ACL last season, and told everyone he wanted to retire on his terms.
Another player who is getting long in the tooth is that of linebacker Terrell Suggs, who is set to wrap up his 14th NFL season Sunday in the final against the Bengals.
He’s the leader of the defense ever since Ray Lewis stepped away, and despite what some are thinking, Suggs says he will be back in 2017 for another run at a Super Bowl.
“I don’t know what you heard. … I was always planning to come back and doing this another year,” he said.
