Terrell Suggs agreed to a six-year, $63 million deal with the Ravens Wednesday. The deal includes a $33.1M signing bonus.

I doubt the Ravens would have enough $$ to pay BMarsh even if they wanted to.
Here are my two favorite parts:

BALTIMORE -- Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs signed a six-year, $63 million contract Wednesday, making him the highest-paid linebacker in NFL history.
The contract, which assures him $38 million in guaranteed money, provides a long-term solution to Suggs' unsettled status as the team's franchise player.

"I am glad it is over. Now we can get back to football," Suggs said. "Getting this done took compromises on both ends. I wanted to stay in purple and black, the Ravens wanted to keep me in purple and black, and they stepped up and showed me that."

Huh? Let me get this straight: you just became the highest paid player at your position in history by a significant margin and you say that you had to "compromise." What exactly were you hoping to get?
