Details have emerged of the long-term extension signed by Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, which could keep Suggs in Baltimore for the entirety of his career. Suggs said at a Monday press conference, "I'm truly flattered and honored that I get to be Raven for life."

The four-year extension runs through the 2018 season, so over the next five years Suggs will receive $16 million in bonuses and guarantees up to $28 million.

With a cap number that was scheduled to be $12.6 million for the 2014 season -- the last year of his previous deal -- the Ravens had multiple motivations for the deal.

Mainly, they extended a core contributor and leader of their defense while also creating cap flexibility with the extension.
