The relationship that has persisted for over a decade was in danger of coming to an end. However, the more the Ravens and Terrell Suggs pondered their options this offseason, they kept coming back to the same conclusion. Suggs and the Ravens still needed each other. The Ravens couldn't afford to lose another team leader and defensive standout. Suggs, 31, would have options either way, but none of them appealed to him more than his current situation. The official compromise came Monday in the form of a four-year, $28.5 million contract extension that gave both sides exactly what they wanted and checked off one of the major items on the Ravens' offseason to-do list.

I think he'll be around for a while, much to the consternation of some of the better competitors.

At this month's BET Awards, the Viewers' Choice award seemed like a battle of front-runners. Nominees Beyonce, Jay-Z and Kanye West were seated in the front row, a skip away from the podium.

Mindless Behavior, the Los Angeles boy band of Prodigy, Princeton, Ray Ray and Roc Royal, bounced up to the stage to accept the night's only award decided on by fans. After catching his breath, Princeton ended his speech with a declaration.

I am a proud Baltimore native and have been a Ravens fan since the football team moved here in 1996. I am also a pastor and an advocate against domestic violence and rape culture. The behavior of running back Ray Rice, who was accused of knocking out his then fiancee (now wife) during an altercation in Atlantic City, has embarrassed me enough to question being a Ravens fan. The pathetic punishment from the NFL — a two game suspension — has made me question my continued support for the league.

ESPN personality, Terps athletics supporter and noted fan base evaluator Scott Van Pelt was in College Park on Saturday for Maryland's 27-26 win over Virginia .

Starting at the 35:30 mark of Monday's “SVP and Russillo” broadcast, you can hear his rant on what it means to be a fan, and why Saturday's 41,077 attendance figure was such a disappointment.

In some ways, the Browns were asking for this when they went with such a young roster. By this, I mean losing. By this, I mean agitation. By this, I mean asking a beaten-down, impatient fan base to just wait because going young is the best way to build a team. It is the wisest road, assuming the young players have talent.
