Andy Reid assured Terrell Suggs he’d be a good fit in K.C.

The Chiefs plucked Terrell Suggs off the waiver wire on Monday despite reports that Suggs might not report to any team other than the Ravens after being dropped by the Cardinals last Friday.

Suggs has reported to the team and head coach Andy Reid said on Wednesday that there was a conversation between him and Suggs before that happened. Reid said “it wasn’t a recruiting-type situation” and Suggs shed some light on the big question he had for the coach.

“I asked coach ‘I just learned the hard way that a player like me just [doesn’t] fit in anywhere.’ He was like ‘Trust me, you’ll fit in here,'” Suggs said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN.com.

Suggs had 37 tackles, 5.5 sacks and four forced fumbles for Arizona. He expects to play for the Chiefs against the Bears on Sunday night, so it shouldn’t be long before we see how well the veteran pass rusher fits into his new team.

  1. Bold Statement: Suggs will outshine Khalil Mack on Sunday Night. T-Sizz can still play at high level, just not consistently anymore. Father time catches up with everyone. Rooting for you Sizz. Do your thang…

  2. If he didn’t fit in with Arizona and their scheme, then why did they sign him in the first place? Better yet, why cut the guy with 2 weeks left in the season when you aren’t making the playoffs. Their moves make zero sense.

  3. If you can’t “fit in” with a scrub defense like Arizona’s it might just be time to hang it up.

    Although KC’s D isn’t much better so who knows — maybe he can hang on a bit longer, playing at a sub-par level. Coach Andy seems okay with it.

  4. Honest not paying attention to the Cardinals question; why did they release him? He’s 37 and those are some pretty decent numbers for someone his age. Especially the 4 forced fumbles part.

  5. Pass the popcorn. He went from a pretender (Arizona) to a contender in Kansas City. I still give Arizona a lot of credit for breaking him off and giving him a chance to be with a team that is at least going to the playoffs. He will play his best ball now.

  6. Our defence has came together the last few weeks. Now we loose a important player to injury. I think it is smart to bring him in opposite of Frank Clark and rotate them.

  7. I only signed with KC cause the Ravens told me they would not claim me if I fell to them.

    I can understand they don’t want to mess with perfection.

    Shoulda stayed my butt in Charm City in the first place…

  8. What Suggs said here had everything to do with him coming on board.

    “It’s hard to turn down (playing with) the reigning MVP (Patrick Mahomes) and a playoff team and just the exciting things they’re doing, this atmosphere.”

    The Chiefs are so afraid of the Patriots that they are bringing in another pass rusher
    ———————————————————————————————-

    I mean, they just went into Foxborough in December and beat them in their own home not 10 days ago, sooo…. yeah, I can see how you’d think the Chiefs were scared of the Pats…

    Now beating the Ravens a third time is a different conversation.

  10. Well, since he gets to play alongside overnight pro bowl sensation Clark…..maybe he can find an old man gear?

    Is the Pro Bowl based off the size of contract signed?? That’s the only thing I can come up with as to why Frank Clark was named a starter.

  11. Not sure the Ravens would have viewed him as a roster upgrade. The last several years his performance late in the season dropped off.

    He can’t hurt, the Chiefs defense is terrible, start him at this point!

    28 points TOTAL given up over the last 3 games? That is less than 13 points per game, Einstein.

  13. Playing alongside the 2nd best interior lineman in the league in Chris Jones, and a top 10 DE in Clark. Suggs may get to show his old self just by just suiting up.

    KC is an ILB, OLB and one CB from being a very good defense. But they’re middle of the road with what they have despite shutting teams down over the last 4 weeks.

    Sizz is on the downside of his career.

    Sounds like a certain QB in NE

    Chiefs should hope they lose a close game to NE to avoid the embarrassment of getting blown off the field by the Ravens

  16. Don’t like the move but Sizz is still someone who want in that big game with you! KC may be able to handle the Ravens. Got a bad image of Sizz winning AFC Championship in Charm City with that UGLY red uniform on.

  17. ”Bold Statement: Suggs will outshine Khalil Mack on Sunday Night. T-Sizz can still play at high level, just not consistently anymore. Father time catches up with everyone. Rooting for you Sizz. Do your thang…“

    @@@@@@

    Because no one double teams Suggs.

  18. It’s hard to believe a guy can be removed from one roster and join another this late in the season AND not every team has a right to sign him. There should be different waiver rules once it is this late in the season and only playoff teams would want to pick a guy up like this.

  19. Well, it took a lot of time but our double agent has now been placed on a rival’s roster.
    Ehhhhhhxcellent

    No just kidding, but here’s hoping he totally blows for them.

  20. Suggs may get another playoff showdown against New England. It looks like New England and KC will get seeds 2 and 3 in some order. The 3 seed should beat a weak 6 seed (likely Pittsburgh or Tennesse) and then play the 2 seed in the Divisional round.

  21. I had no idea Sizzle was still alive, much less still an NFL player. But, sure, okay, we will take him for 5 games in KC. Why not?!

  22. Wasn’t he charged three times for assaulting his girlfriend? Sit him right beside Hill and Clark in the locker room – will fit in well…KC really sets the standard for character

  23. Great move by the Chiefs but what I’m the heck is Arizona doing? Maybe he wasnt the future there but what possible reason do they have to not let him play out the next two weeks and not renew his contract? They need that valuable roster spot to use while they’re sitting at home in two weeks or they That strapped for cash and can’t pay him the $350k left on the contract? Makes zero sense

  24. I don’t know how many plays he was on the field for but 5.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles seems like okay numbers if he wasn’t playing a lot. Sounds like in the right fit and scheme he still is useful. Lets hope he rides out on a high note. Even though I am not a Ravens fan, I would have secretly liked it if he came back for the rest of year.

    It’s cute that you think anyone is afraid of the Patriots offense at this point.

  28. Yet another crybaby NFL millionaire. If DIRECTV ever stops giving me the Sunday Ticket for free each year, I’m done with these clowns and the NFL. Cheers!

    ______________________________________________________

    Just pointing out this out to those who don’t really pay attention. The Chiefs are slowing creeping up to a top 10 defense. They are currently 11th in points allowed Over the last 5 weeks, they have been outstanding specially defending the pass, specifically to receivers.

    All Suggs needs to do is play 10 to 15 snaps as a rotational guy on passing situations. He is replacing a guy who has similar stats as him this year.

  30. At this point…Sizzle is the BEST player on KC’s pitiful defense!
    ————————————
    If you actually watched football you would know that the Chiefs D has quietly moved into the top-10 in points allowed this season.

    When did the Ravens become the chiefs rival? I know the Patrick Mahomes’ led chiefs are 2-0 vs the Lamar Jackson led ravens. That’s pretty much it. There’s no rivalry. As a chiefs fan, I can think of at least ten other teams that I hate more than the ravens. Just because they’re the one seed and we’re the three seed right now doesn’t mean we’re rivals lol. I see you trying to speak it into existence though lol
