Terrell Suggs’ 15th season ended much like his 13th and 14th – a trip home rather than a berth in the AFC playoffs. But in the immediate aftermath of Sunday evening’s 31-27 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Ravens outside linebacker said retirement is not in his immediate future. “I plan on playing football for a few more years,” he said in the locker room underneath M&T Bank Stadium. “Do you think I should quit?” When a reporter replied, “No,” Suggs continued, “Alright. My body isn’t what is hurting right now. I plan on playing football next year and years to come.” At 35, Suggs is the third-oldest player on the roster, trailing 37-year-old tight end Benjamin Watson and 35-year-old punter Sam Koch. But for the ninth time, he finished a season leading the defense in sacks, compiling 11 in 2017 and raising his franchise-leading total to 125½. He also led the team in forced fumbles with four.
