"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?
QFT. You hit the nail on the head. Some athletes say the stupidist stuff...
