OLB Suggs

Terrell Suggs is another player who has had the taste of victory. In fact, he was a member of the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs in 2019. While he is less versatile than Bradham, he does have his own value to add to the Rams’ roster. After all, the Rams are eager to fast-track rookie outside linebacker Terrell Lewis. While he’ll like rotate behind starters Leonard Floyd and Samson Ebukam, he would benefit greatly by working with a veteran player like Suggs.

Suggs is the old-school outside linebacker who is large enough to put a hand in the dirt for a three-point stance, but powerful enough to get the job done from the two-point stance.  At 6-foot-3 and 265-pounds, he is a very powerful man. He’s needed that power to remain in the NFL over his 17-season career.

Sack of Suggs

Terrell Suggs can still get to the quarterback. In fact, he has only recorded less than five quarterback sacks three times in his long career, and not since playing just one game for the Baltimore Ravens in 2015. While he tends to exclusively get after the quarterback, he boasts seven career interceptions. The last year for picking off a pass was 2011 when he intercepted two passes. He also recorded 20 tackles for a loss (TFLs) in that season.

Suggs is a quality veteran to have in the rotation. He can still play a healthy number of defensive snaps, and whenever he is on the field, he is capable of a sack, a tackle for a loss, or a tackle for no gain. All the while, he is demonstrating how to play the positions the right way to the young Rams defenders.  Suggs is more than an investment in today. He would pay dividends for years to come.
