The most famous student of Ball So Hard University strutted in front of a throng of reporters Wednesday. And naturally, he wore a black Ball So Hard University T-shirt as he explained where his school spirit came from. "A lot of guys on this team attended Ball So Hard University, including myself," Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said. "The dean of students and president of the school is actually Shawn Carter," better known as Jay-Z. Suggs created an internet sensation before Sunday night's 23-20 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers when he said his alma mater was “Ball So Hard University” as the Ravens defense was introduced in a NBC graphic.

By now, I'd expect that Ray Rice has spoken to either general manager Ozzie Newsome or head coach John Harbaugh and given his side of the story or at least apologized for the negative attention his recent arrest caused the organization . Still, Newsome's admission yesterday that he had yet to speak with Rice was extremely surprising, if not telling. I'm not trying to pile on Rice, who was arrested along with his fiancée over the weekend at a casino after the two were involved in a physical altercation, according to Atlantic City police.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh made his first public comments this afternoon about Terrell Suggs' injury. Harbaugh was among those who gathered today at the Fallen Heroes Memorial at Dulaney Valley Memorial Gardens. Harbaugh's quotes are courtesy of WJZ-TV: INITIAL THOUGHTS ON THE INJURY Harbaugh: "He will be okay, Terrell Suggs will be fine. He will be back. He will go to work on that rehab like no other. He will continue to be a huge part of what we are doing, continue to be a leader and then the young guys will step up. They will step forward, and you are a football team first, you are a team, team is not one guy. " HIS REACTION WHEN TERRELL CALLED HIM Harbaugh: "My heart went out to Terrell because he was so down about it,  it was so hard for him to actually spit out what had happened.

As speculation swirled after the 2013 season about whether Terrell Suggs was nearing the end of his run with the Ravens, the team's top decision-makers felt the rush linebacker, who was the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year in 2011, still had a few more productive years left to give them. They backed up that talk on Monday, signing Suggs to a contract extension that could keep him in Baltimore through 2018 . But now that there is the expectation that Suggs, who will turn 32 during the 2014 season, will “be a Raven for life,” what should the Ravens expect to get from him over the life of the contract?

Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs spoke about the injury to his Achilles tendon and his expectations as to when he'll be able to return. On the nature of the injury: "I've already been to see two different doctors. One says it is a partial tear, one says it is a full tear. I don't know what the hell is going on. I've been in contact with the Ravens, and there will be a procedure done Tuesday to correct the problem. " On how he suffered the injury: "The injury did not occur while I was playing basketball.

Several Ravens players like quarterback Joe Flacco, right guard Marshal Yanda and strong safety Bernard Pollard spoke glowingly Wednesday of re-acquainting themselves with San Diego Chargers outside linebacker Jarret Johnson, who spent his first nine seasons in Baltimore before signing with San Diego on March 17 as a free agent. But no player arguably misses Johnson more than outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, who, like Johnson, was drafted by the Ravens in 2003. Suggs, the rambunctious pass rusher, and Johnson, the cerebral run stopper, made an odd couple, but they were the closest of friends in the locker room.

We all wrote the guy off. Me, the rest of the Baltimore media and a ton of Ravens fans, judging by the talk shows and message boards. No way would Terrell Suggs play against the Houston Texans, we all said. He's coming back too soon from that partially-torn Achilles tendon. He's only had three days of practice. There's a bye week coming up. What's the point of him rushing back? We all said that, in one way or the other, all week long. Shows what we know. I still don't know why he was out there, but Suggs had himself some day in that debacle against the Texans.

Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs proved again on Sunday that it's a risky business betting against a special player when he sets his mind to something. He said months ago that he would return earlier than prescribed from Achilles tendon surgery, and he did just that against the Houston Texans. It's still fair to debate whether returning before the bye week was the smartest thing to do on the heel (see what I did there) of such a serious injury, but Suggs did it and played surprisingly well under the circumstances.

Outside linebacker Terrell Suggs majorly impacted the Ravens defense after his improbably quick recovery from a torn right Achilles tendon. Now he is vowing to play through a torn right biceps at some point this season. The reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year tore a muscle late in the team's 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday. The Ravens feared the injury could be season-ending, but Suggs said Wednesday that he will be back at some point -- maybe as soon as this weekend -- and that shutting it down was not an option.

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.

Off the field, Ray Rice is among the Ravens' most visible players, from the running back's community outreach to his anti-bullying activities to a myriad of profitable endorsements. But an alleged domestic dispute this weekend between Rice and his fiancee at an Atlantic City casino could jeopardize much of that and tarnish the image that he has built during his six years in Baltimore. A charge that Rice struck Janay Palmer early Saturday morning will affect his many outside endeavors, said Howe Burch, a top executive with Baltimore-based TBC Advertising.

The Ravens reached an agreement on a contract extension with veteran rush linebacker Terrell Suggs on Sunday night that is expected to give the team additional salary-cap room, according to team sources. Suggs, 31, has verbally agreed to the deal, according to sources, and he's expected to sign the contract Monday morning. Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and Suggs will speak to reporters at a news conference at noon on Monday at the Under Armour Performance Center. Full details of Suggs' adjusted contract weren't available Sunday evening , but he was scheduled to make a $7.8 million base salary under the previous terms of his six-year, $62.5 million contract.

The line in the sand has to be drawn soon. For the Ravens to be successful in the offseason, a top priority is getting Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs to agree to a contract extension, freeing up some salary cap room to sign other players. Teams can begin negotiating with unrestricted free agents March 8. Free agency begins at 4 p.m. March 11. According to an NFL source, the two sides are making progress, and the assumption here is that a new deal is likely. Suggs has one year remaining on a six-year, $62.5 million contract worth $12.4 million this season.

The NFL Scouting Combine is still about two weeks away. Free agency won't begin in more than a month. The NFL draft won't take play for more than three months. There is seemingly never a quiet time in an NFL offseason, but at least for the next couple of weeks, the Ravens aren't dealing with any league-imposed deadlines or high-profile NFL showcases or events. However, they have plenty to do before the rush of offseason activities begins. Finalize the coaching staff : A couple of days after receiving the NFL's Salute to Service award, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh embarked on a trip overseas to visit the troops.

Before day two of the first annual NFL Pro Bowl Draft began tonight, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker took to his Twitter account to campaign for one of the game's captains, Deion Sanders, to take him with his first selection. Tucker had to wait a little longer than that, but he was ultimately drafted by Sanders' team, which will oppose fellow Hall of Famer Jerry Rice's squad Sunday night at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Tucker joins his other two Pro Bowl teammates - guard Marshal Yanda and rush linebacker Terrell Suggs - on Sanders' team, which is being captained by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt.

The Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night were featured on NFL Network's “Sound FX,” which gave viewers new audio and video of the Ravens' Harbaugh Bowl win from Thanksgiving night. This may come as a shock, but Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs noticed that the cameras were rolling. There were many entertaining highlights, but my favorite was Suggs going nuts about tight end Dennis Pitta, who moved the chains with a diving third-down catch on the team's game-deciding touchdown drive.

The Ravens could have a vacancy or two in their backfield whenever free agency begins. Backup running back Willis McGahee is expected to be released and fullback Le'Ron McClain is free to sign wherever he pleases. Might the Ravens turn to Terrell Suggs whenever Ray Rice needs a breather? In addition to being a stand-out sack machine in high school, Suggs was a pretty good running back. And somehow, we uncovered footage of him wreaking havoc on both sides of the ball in a high school playoff game in Arizona back in the day. He ran for more than 200 yards and had a pair of sacks.

As my colleague Peter Schmuck pointed out in a column earlier this week , you often have to read between the lines at the “State of the Ravens” address to learn more about the front office's offseason intentions. I'll attempt to do that below: General manager Ozzie Newsome offering the reminder that the organization is not afraid to let go of good football players when asked about rush linebacker Terrell Suggs ' status confirms what most people have long expected: It's going to be pretty much impossible for the Ravens to keep Suggs at his current contract , which carries with it a $12.4 million salary cap hit for the 2014 season.

The Ravens have maintained an expensive tradition of rewarding their top players with contracts that approach or exceed the gold standard as the highest in the NFL. Besides quarterback Joe Flacco's blockbuster $120.6 million contract signed in March that included $51 million guaranteed, the Ravens have reached deep into owner Steve Bisciotti's coffers to sign several other standout players to lucrative deals. That includes nose tackle Haloti Ngata's $61 million contract, with $35 million guaranteed; rush linebacker Terrell Suggs' $62.5 million contract, with $37.1 million guaranteed; and running back Ray Rice's $35 million deal, with $22 million guaranteed.
