According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, some people within league circles are wondering if the Baltimore Ravens will end up releasing linebacker Terrell Suggs. Doing so with a post-June 1 designation would create $6.4 million in cap space, as of June 1.  If the Ravens cut him before June 1, his $6.4 million base salary would be offset by a $4.6 million bonus acceleration.  The good news under that scenario is that Suggs would be off the books come 2014. Still, the thought of dumping the 2011 NFL defensive player of the year seems like madness, at best.  Though he was drafted 10 years ago, he’ll be 30 until October 11.  But he missed much of the 2012 regular season with an Achilles tendon injury suffered while playing basketball in the offseason, and he had only two sacks in eight regular-season games. Even though this sounds crazy, Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome has made it clear that they won’t be restructuring any contracts this offseason to try to get under the cap.     Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })();
