Man, I’m just tryin to eat some dinner here, but the contract news just keeps rollin’ in.
We just told you about B-Rob, and now NFL.com is reporting that the Ravens have indeed placed the franchise tag on T-Sizzle for the 2nd consecutive season.
I was hoping it wouldn’t come to this, but I guess the two sides just couldn’t get close on a long-term extension. The bad news is that this pretty much assures that Suggs will be absent from all off-season workouts and from training camp.
The good news is that the Ravens get to hang on to him for another season, and that they can now turn their attention to the other crucial free agents; namely, Ray Lewis and Jason Brown.
Brown SHOULD be priorty number 1. I’d bet money though, that of the two, we hear about Lewis signing first.
Now, I could have sworn that last year when Suggs was franchised, we heard something about there being a stipulation in place that he did not have to accept the tag again. Maybe it was in place, but he just decided he *wanted* to accept the tag?
More details to come.
