Baltimore Ravens had no shot to bring back Terrell Suggs
Despite rumblings of a possible reunion between the Baltimore Ravens and Terrell Suggs, the reality is that there was never really a good shot for it.
Fanservice is amazing. Marvel Studios has perfected the art through their movies and sports team find ways to do the same thing through classic uniforms, etc. Baltimore Ravens fans were hoping that the organization could give them some of this by picking up former-Raven and future Hall of Famer Terrell Suggs through waivers. Unfortunately, it simply wasn’t meant to be.

Suggs was claimed off waivers Monday, December 16th by the Kansas City Chiefs, putting an end to hopeful fans of a reunion.
Some fans may be wondering if it were at all possible for T-Sizzle to return to Charm City at all, regardless of the Chiefs’ acquisition of him. As it turns out, there were several other teams in on picking up Terrell Suggs, including the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, and New Orleans Saints
No one should be surprised by any of these teams taking an interest in acquiring Suggs. The 49ers have arguably the league’s best pass rush, but the unit has been hampered with injuries as of late. The Seahawks don’t have one star edge rusher and have instead by getting the job done through a committee of players. The Saints defense is a good one, but they still need bodies to keep their unit a championship-caliber one.
With this news, hopefully Ravens Flock can have some closure that the team never had a realistic shot to bring Terrell Suggs back home. In the meantime, the team can instead focus on continuing to develop their youth and allow Matt Judon to remain the star off the edge.
The news is certainly a bummer, but the reality is that it was probably in the best interest for the Baltimore Ravens to not bring back Terrell Suggs. The team’s pass rush, while lackluster, has youth that needs to be developed and brining back Suggs could’ve restricted the snaps that youngsters like Tyus Bowser and Jaylon Ferguson are in need of. It sucks, but the NFL is a business.
