Report: Terrell Suggs expected to leave Ravens for Cardinals

Terrell Suggs has reportedly played his final game in a Baltimore Ravens uniform.

The seven-time Pro Bowl pass rusher and 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year is leaving the team in free agency and is expected to sign with the Arizona Cardinals, NFL Network reports.

End of an era in Baltimore

Suggs was named Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2003 with Baltimore, where he has played his entire 16-year career, winning a Super Bowl after the 2012 season.

It marks a homecoming of sorts for Suggs, who played college football at Arizona State. It also marks the end of an era in Baltimore, where Suggs was the last prominent player remaining from the dominant Ravens defenses that also featured Hall of Famers Ed Reed and Ray Lewis.
