“We’ve engaged in discussions with several of our players,” general manager Ozzie Newsome said, via the Baltimore Sun. “With the combine coming up, the majority of the agents will be there and we will be there. I’m sure we’ll have some more talks, but we’ve engaged in several conversations with several players.”
The Ravens new deal with Suggs lowered his salary-cap figure by about $4 million.
“You learn the business side of it, and it was like, ‘You might have to do something just so that we can create cap space and bring in more players for us to help us win,” Suggs said. “At the end of the day, that’s the most important thing is us winning.”
