The Ravens will have a new General Manager next year, and they just drafted a first-round quarterback.
But they also still have a solid core of veteran leaders, and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs says he thinks that will remain the case for the near future.
Suggs turned 35 last year, but had 11.0 sacks and made the Pro Bowl for the first time since 2013. But it’s hard to not think about the future of the team, with G.M. Ozzie Newsome handing the reins to longtime assistant Eric DeCosta, and the team using a first-round pick on quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Suggs himself is in the final year of his contract, leading to natural questions about his future. He made his feelings clear.
“I don’t plan on going nowhere,” he added, saying he planned on playing several more years and doing it in a Ravens uniform.
The Seahawks have six of nine picks under contract. They signed offensive tackle Jamarco Jones, a fifth-round pick, and quarterback Alex McGough, a seventh-rounder, on Tuesday.
Washington hires new COO, increasing speculation that team president could be on the way out
The top of the organization in Washington is getting a little crowded.
Owner Daniel Snyder has added league office executive Brian LaFemina as COO and President of Business Operations. In that role, LaFemina will oversee all club business operations and report directly to Snyder.
“We’re in the middle of a hell of a run, obviously,” coach Steve Kerr said.
