Best Thing About Being A Baltimore Sports Fan
In a departure from previous years, Suggs stayed in Maryland during the offseason and bought in completely to the Ravens' strength and conditioning program headed by director of performance Steve Saunders. The result, as outgoing defensive coordinator Dean Pees said last summer, was that Suggs looked "25 years old again."
Opposing tackles would probably agree, as Suggs recorded a team-high 11 sacks, forced a team-high four fumbles, and was named to the Pro Bowl for the seventh time in his career. And he was not just a situational pass rusher; Suggs continued to play 80 to 90 percent of the defensive snaps for a defense that ranked 12th overall and recorded three shutouts, one shy of the franchise record.
Suggs has openly talked about being on the "back nine" of his career, but he proved this season that he still has a few good swings left.
