The Baltimore Ravens have today announced that they have signed linebacker, Terrell Suggs to a four year contract extension.

Ravens general manager, Ozzie Newsome said at a press conference: "It's a four year extension for Terrell, it gives Terrell the opportunity to continue playing football in Baltimore."

Suggs holds the Ravens franchise record in sacks and has been with the team ever since he was drafted in 2003. 

The linebacker said he was grateful for the chance to retire as a Raven: "I just gotta thank you guys, I'm truly grateful. It's a first-class organization and I'm thankful for the chance to finish my career where it started at. I'm a Raven for life."

Suggs was an integral member of the Ravens defense that won Super Bowl 47 and was a leader of the team last year after losing veteran members Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.

The 31 year old linebacker was thought to be a cap-casualty this off season, expecting to receive almost $8 million this coming season. However, the Ravens and Suggs' representatives were able to make a deal work and he will now receive $12 million this season according to Ian Rapoport.

NFL reporter, Rapoport tweeted today: "Details available on the Terrell Suggs/Ravens deal: He’ll make $12M this year and $16M is guaranteed. Avgs $7M over 3 years until he’s 35"
