Update: Terrell Suggs' new deal runs through 2018 according to a team source. The deal lowers 2014 cap from $12.4M to $7.8M.

The deal helps out both player and team. Baltimore gets some cap room and a friendly guarantee that is prorated over the length of the deal. Suggs will undoubtedly be able to wind up his career as a Raven. He should also be motivated by his mediocre 2013 performance, which bodes well for Baltimore in 2014. Expect the Ravens to now address Haloti Ngata's contract.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
