February 21, 2020
Suggs made four assisted tackles across three playoff appearances with the Chiefs. He notched 40 tackles (24 solo), 6.5 sacks and four fumbles (one of which he recovered) in 15 combined regular-season games with the Chiefs and Cardinals.
ANALYSIS
Suggs spent the first 14 weeks of the 2019 regular season in Arizona, but he came to a mutual agreement to part ways with the team in the interest of making a postseason run. The veteran pass rusher got his wish in Kansas City, where he quickly carved out a rotational role and contributed to the team's Super Bowl victory over San Francisco. It remains to be seen whether the 37-year-old, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, intends to continue his storied NFL career.

Suggs' 16-year run with the Ravens was Hall of Fame-worthy. As he moves to the Arizona desert, he brings along 132.5 sacks (T-13 all-time) and 193 tackles for loss (first). His output has waned somewhat as he's marched through his mid-30s, but he put up 26 sacks while missing just one game over the past three seasons. With such a resume, Suggs is an excellent candidate to slot into the Cardinals' pass rush opposite Chandler Jones, who has tormented quarterbacks to the tune of 53.5 sacks over the past four years.
The 35-year-old Suggs is reaching ageless wonder territory coming off his seventh Pro Bowl season. He was a tad shaky in 2016, his first year back from a torn Achilles, but bounced back in 2017 with 11.0 sacks and four forced fumbles. His burst off the edge remains solid and his motor still runs as hot as it ever did. It's fair to bake some regression into his 2018 projection as there have only been five players to record more than 11.0 sacks in their age-36 season or later since 1982, when sacks became an official stat. It's also worth noting that this could be Suggs' last season in Baltimore as this is his final year of his deal and, again, is old for a pass rusher. Regardless, Suggs showed in 2017 that he can still produce at a high level and he should be a reliable source of sacks even if his tackle count dwindles as the Ravens monitor his snap count.
Although he seemingly has to fight through injuries every year and is entering his age-35 season, Suggs can still get to the quarterback. He racked up eight sacks in 15 games last season after suffering the second torn Achilles of his career in the 2015 season opener. The Ravens have accrued the edge depth to where Suggs doesn't play as many snaps as he did earlier in his career, but he still averaged 46.3 snaps per game last season. The addition of Tim Williams in the draft further takes the pressure off Suggs to be an every-down player, which should help keep Suggs fresh throughout the season. Suggs' days as a lock for double-digit sacks may be over given his age, injury history, and slightly diminished role, but a repeat of last year's eight-sack output is certainly still in the realm of possibility.
A potential Hall of Famer, the 33-year-old Suggs suffered a torn Achilles – the second of his career – during a Week 1 game in Denver, ending his 2015 season before it ever really started. He hopes to be available by Week 1, but even young players often need two years to regain full form after suffering the same injury. Suggs did have double-digit sacks in each of his last four seasons that weren't interrupted by an Achilles tear.
Suggs turns 33 in October, but he's coming off back-to-back seasons with double-digit sacks, and he's still one of the league's top run-defenders among 3-4 outside linebackers. While unlikely to provide huge numbers, he still has something left in the tank to offer the Ravens and IDP fantasy owners.
Suggs recorded 80 tackles and 10 sacks last season, but his performance fell off late in the year. He's an excellent run defender and still a capable pass rusher, but the former DPOY may fall short of double-digit sacks.
Suggs could be a force in 2013 if he makes a full recovery from the torn biceps that he suffered after returning from a torn Achilles' last year. It is a lot to come back from, but the recent addition of Elvis Dumervil to the Baltimore roster should help, as Suggs probably will not see as many double teams as he is used to in 2013.
Suggs is still (incorrectly) listed as a defensive end in some leagues, and in such arrangements he warrants consideration as a top-five player in the category – he routinely posts big numbers by defensive line standards. But when he’s classified as a linebacker, Suggs is considerably less appealing. He's a pretty good bet to make it to double-digit sacks in any given season, but with just one 80-tackle season in his eight-year career, Suggs' fantasy utility is generally limited to leagues that disproportionately reward sacks over tackles.
After being tagged the Ravens' franchise player before last season, Suggs severely underwhelmed. Suggs showed up to training camp overweight and went on to record a career-low 4.5 sacks. He took part in offseason activities this year and says he is committed to regaining his old form. If true, Suggs has the potential to be an elite pass rusher.
Suggs led the Ravens with eight sacks last season among his 68 tackles. The Ravens showed how much they appreciated the effort by locking Suggs up for six years and $63 million in July, the largest contract ever for a defensive player. Suggs is durable (101 straight starts and counting) and at 26 is entering the prime of his career. There's every reason to believe that Suggs will match or improve upon his 2008 production this season.
Suggs had his worst sack total of his career in 2007 (5), but he did manage a career high with 80 tackles. The Ravens thought enough of Suggs to throw the franchise-tag on him, so expect him to have another quality season and bounce back with a few more sacks.
Suggs has been remarkably consistent the past three years. His total tackles have ranged from 60 to 69 and his sack count has hiccupped between eight and 10.5. His solo tackle numbers have been even more scary: 45, 46 and 46. What's more, he's finished the last two seasons strong, including 6.5 sacks in the last seven games of 2006. He's even done it regardless of whether Baltimore lines up in a 3-4 or 4-3 alignment. Either way, Suggs puts his first step, explosiveness and closing ability to work. In addition to the solid tackle numbers and strong sack tally, Suggs is athletic enough to do well with the little extras, like 14 fumbles forced in his four-year career and three interceptions. The final happy fact about the disruptive force that is Terrell Suggs: he's never missed a game in his career.
Boy was it depressing when Suggs made 12 sacks in his rookie year but just 19 solo tackles. One of the NFL’s most exciting defensive talents was useless in the fantasy realm in any tackle-based system. What’s more, as an outside linebacker in Baltimore’s 3-4 defense, he was listed only at linebacker in more restrictive leagues. His stats might not have been good as a lineman but they were doubly disappointing at linebacker. Both problems are now solved. He registered 45 solos in 2004 in his sophomore campaign and another 46 last year. With Baltimore switching to a 4-3 this season, there’s no question Suggs will be available in every league at lineman, where he’s one of the best. The consistent high tackle numbers mean that even when he doesn’t hit double-digits in sacks, he’s still hanging around in the top 10. Converting to a three-point stance likely means more sacks than his career-low eight last season, but also less time in coverage. The tackles might dip, and the picks will become scarce. Perhaps being listed as a lineman in a 3-4 was the best of both worlds, but with his speed and solid technique, we’re expecting the sack increase to make up the difference. Given more chances at quarterbacks, he’ll vie for the sack crown.
Technically, Suggs is a linebacker, playing the pass-rushing outside position in Baltimore’s 3-4, but in some leagues he may be listed as a lineman. Lucky you if that’s the case your league, since his numbers are average for a linebacker but fantastic for a lineman. After a rookie season of just 19 solo tackles, but 12 sacks, a pick and six forced fumbles, he stepped up in the tackle arena big time for 2004. It’s a graduation we’re exceedingly pleased to see Suggs make since it makes one of the best NFL talents now fantasy viable as well. So long as the tackle numbers stay up, Suggs can be an incredible asset.
If your league classifies Suggs as a lineman, you’ve got to give him a look. Twelve sacks as a rookie in 2003 are impressive. Just 19 solo tackles are not. A sack specialist, Suggs didn’t see many first and second downs and was behind Adalius Thomas most of the year in a rushing OLB role in Baltimore’s 3-4. Six forced fumbles, an interception and three passes defended filled in for the lack of tackles. Given just 30 solo tackles, Suggs would jump into the top 15 (he’d still be nowhere near contention among linebackers), so look out for how he and Thomas will split time this year.
Suggs rolled up an NCAA-record 24 sacks in his final year at Arizona State, but his stock fell a bit when he ran slow 40-yard times over the past few months. The Ravens plan to use him as a pass-rushing outside linebacker in their 3-4 defense, even though Suggs was a defensive end at ASU. Playing next to Ray Lewis and opposite Peter Boulware should allow Suggs plenty of room to operate.
