The Ravens and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs have finalized a new four-year contract extension, G.M. Ozzie Newsome announced Monday.

The 31-year-old Suggs notched 80 tackles and 10 sacks in 2013. He has played his entire career for Baltimore.

Newsome said the Ravens, just as the franchise indicated at season’s end, wanted to pursue contract extensions with an eye on creating salary-cap space.

“What it does, it just allows us to have the opportunity to pursue some of our own guys but also be prepared when free agency opens up March 11, if there’s players that are attractive to us, then we can pursue them,” Newsome said.

Newsome also noted that offseason film study reminded gave him a “new appreciation” of how Suggs gives opposing offenses trouble.

Suggs, who’s entering his 12th NFL season, indicated that he would like to finish his career with Baltimore, with whom he debuted at age 20 in 2003.

“Sizzle will be a Raven for life,” Suggs said.

    Being a Minnesota Vikings fan is something you’re born into.

    Sort of like being an heir for a King of a great country.

    Except Viking fans are way more intelligent, classy and good looking.

    Precisely the way it should be. So much for cap hell for the Ravens.

    “Sizzle will be a Raven for life,” Suggs said.

    At which point Ozzie Newsome breathed a heavy sigh, put his head in his hands, and silently wept.

    … I don’t get it. Why is the man who signed Suggs to a contract extension weeping? Was that an attempt at humor? Is he sad that Suggs spoke in third person? Is he upset he signed him? Come on hoss, help fill in every other person who read that and was confused…

    Yeah, I didn’t know what to say but I knew I had to say something. It was both referring to himself in the third person and calling himself “Sizzle.” I just imagined an old school guy like Newsome reacting to what his life has become having to give millions of dollars to a guy who talks like that. Sorry about the confusion.

    Hey, they can’t all be gems.

    You simply are a immature hater, or uneducated about the game of football if you suggest that this move isnt a SLAM DUNK! My Beautiful City is so lucky to have Ozzie at the helm, and to have guys like Suggs who put his team first and legacy second. He’s a breath of fresh air and glad to see him stay in Bmore where he belongs. It would be a travesty to see him go to Arizona like Heap did, just to embarrass himself with a bunch of desert dwelling losers. I mean, 11-5 and you dont make the playoffs? i dont blame the system, i blame the team, should of won 12 fool! lol
