Terrell Raymonn Suggs NFL 2014 Statistics Few players scare quarterbacks opponents like Terrell Raymonn Suggs certainly one of the greatest pass-rushers in NFL history. The versatility makes the shirt 55 a powerful weapon in QB pressure opponent, he is full both starting the snap with his hand on the ground (DE) as in formations blitz (OLB). In only three of the ten years as a professional he did not compute at least eight sacks in a season.

Talent that was shown already in his college career, Suggs broke several NCAA records in the years defended Arizona State. In three seasons there, he tallied 163 tackles, 14 sacks and 44 forced fumble, only 22 of them in 2002. Despite his young age, the numbers caught the attention of NFL teams. With just twenty, Suggs was the second youngest player defending league history to be drafted, selected by the Baltimore Ravens with the 10th overall pick in the 2003 Draft.

Even without being outright holder, the 55 shirt was spectacular in his rookie season. He won the award for defensive freshman of the year 2003, starting just one of 16 games the Ravens as a starter. The twelve sacks in his first year in the NFL was a premise of what would follow. Already as a starter in 2004, he was selected to the Pro Bowl for the first of six times in his career.

The versatility Suggs became dormant with the arrival of Rex Ryan as defensive coordinator in 2005. Terrell Ryan moved to the position of defensive end when the team varied the tactical formation of 3-4 to 4-3. The shirt 55 was exceptional in both functions, confusing the opposing offensive lines. He was instrumental in the 13-3 2006 campaign, stopped only by the Divisional Round Indianapolis Colts, the team that would be the champion of the Super Bowl that year.

After a disappointing 2007, coach John Harbaugh took the Ravens to the promise of raising the franchise again, it was exactly what he did. Beside the young QB Joe Flacco, Harbaugh gave a new face to the team from Baltimore. In the first five years under his leadership, the team reached the playoffs.

Suggs was instrumental in this process, an important part of the defense of Ravens alongside spectacular names like Ray Lewis and Ed Reed to. From 2008 to 2011, the 55 shirt tallied 37.5 sacks and 12 forced fumbles. This provided that Suggs had the worst performance of his career in 2009: overweight, missed the first three games of his career due to injury, had only 4.5 sacks all season. In 2011, he won the award for best defensive player in the NFL, had an incredible 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles.

Despite the award, was the year 2012 that has marked the career of Terrell Suggs, it was total hell to paradise in a few months. 55 The shirt tore the Achilles tendon in May of that year, which in theory would take the whole season. None of that. He was the player who recovered from this serious injury faster in league history, was already on the field on October 21 against the Houston Texans.

Slowly he was gaining pace, was fit to compete in the playoffs that year. Suggs was instrumental in the postseason, especially in the win against the Denver Broncos in the Divisional Round. For those not in theory would play, he was crowned with the title of Super Bowl champion 2012, after winning the San Francisco 49ers in the grand final. Was the recognition that was missing for the great player he is.

Was regular in 2013, one of the main highlights of the median year of the Baltimore Ravens. With 10 sacks and 45 tackles, he was selected to the sixth Pro Bowl career. The expectation is that these numbers improve for next season, by far reinforcements arrived to enhance the pass-rush team. He will have Chris Canty (ex-Giants) as DE, and Elvis Dumervil (ex-Broncos) at the other end. Not to mention the arrival of freshman CJ Mosley in the core of LBs this line.
