John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports Baltimore Ravens DL Terrell Suggs has agreed to a six-year, $63 million deal with the team, according to a source. Suggs will receive signing bonus and option bonus money that will total $33.1 million in 2009 and 2010, according to a source. Over the first two years of the contract, Suggs will make $40 million. Over the first three years, he will earn $43.4 million. Over the first four years, Suggs will make $48.3 million.
It'll be interesting to see what this means for getting Willis signed to a long-term deal. Although the positions are different, you gotta believe that this contract will be discussed during the negotiations.

Suggs is younger then Peppers so this probably won't help him land a long term deal.
Peppers signed his tender though?
Yup. Now he's guaranteed something like 16 or 17 million next season.
