Sources — Terrell Suggs angling to be claimed by Ravens only

Though he is eligible to be claimed on waivers at 4 p.m. ET Monday, former Arizona Cardinals pass rusher Terrell Suggs will strongly consider not reporting to his new claiming team if it is anyone other than the Baltimore Ravens, league sources say.

Any team that claims Suggs will owe him just over $350,000 for the final two weeks of the regular season. But Suggs doesn’t care about that money, he cares about returning to Baltimore, which is his overwhelming preference.

With a 12-2 record, the Ravens have the NFL’s lowest waiver claim, meaning every team will have the chance to claim Suggs before Baltimore. Knowing this, Suggs has told some people that he is unlikely to report anywhere other than Baltimore, wanting to finish his NFL career in the same city in which he started it.

The question is whether any contending teams that could use pass-rushing help — and many do — disregard the wishes of Suggs, whom Arizona released on Friday. The answer will come sometime Monday afternoon.
