Baltimore Ravens Legend OLB Terrell Suggs will be inducted into the organization's Ring of Honor, presented by Meritage Jewelers, during halftime of the Oct. 22 game vs. the Detroit Lions.
A seven-time Pro Bowler and the 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Suggs played 16 seasons (2003-18) for Baltimore, producing franchise records in sacks (132.5) and forced fumbles (37).
Seeing action in 229 regular season games and 18 postseason contests as a Raven, Suggs was a member of Baltimore's 2012 Super Bowl XLVII-winning team. Tabbed by Ozzie Newsome as a 2003 first-round draft pick (10th overall), Suggs also registered 941 tackles as a Raven, ranking second only behind LB Ray Lewis (2,643).
Following his time in Charm City, Suggs played one more season (2019), splitting time with the Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs. With the Chiefs, he captured his second-career Super Bowl title.
During his 17-year NFL career, Suggs tallied 139 sacks, which rank eighth most in league history. He also posted 12.5 sacks in the playoffs, producing a mark that ranks fourth in all-time postseason history.
Stated Newsome (the Ravens' former general manager and current executive vice president) to Suggs in a video announcing the Ring of Honor induction:
"You were a prime example of what it means to 'Play Like a Raven.' For 16 seasons, it was a joy watching you perform in the purple and black. Through your leadership, dedication and dominance, you helped elevate our standard."
