BALTIMORE (WJZ) — For the first time in almost a year, the media heard from linebacker Terrell Suggs. Suggs met with the press for his first conference since he tore his Achilles last season.

Suggs is extremely confident in his return and his team this coming season. “We’re more motivated than anything,” he said.

He’s currently on the pup list but he’s made it clear that he is itching to return to the field soon. “I got a lot of promises to keep, many miles before I can sleep. I love football, I love the locker room, I love my teammates… I feel good, it ain’t gonna be long before you all see 55 out there practicing.”
