Ray Rice isn't the only Raven making headlines Sunday night.

The organization announced that outside linebacker Terrell Suggs and general manager Ozzie Newsome will meet with the media Monday at noon. The reason hasn't been disclosed at this time.

However, if you add two and two together, the most likely reason for this presser is that an extension has been reached between the two parties. Suggs was set to enter the final year of his contract, with the chance of being released this offseason.

With the Ravens preemptively announcing this press conference, you can be assured Suggs isn't heading anywhere else.

On top of that, getting a Suggs extension done now allows the Ravens to move on to other pressing matters, including what to do with other upcoming free agents such as tight end Dennis Pitta, Eugene Monroe and Arthur Jones.
