Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome and outside linebacker Terrell Suggs met with the media to discuss a four-year extension the two parties agreed to.

The deal will reportedly lower his over-$12 million cap figure for 2014 considerably and essentially allow Suggs to finish his career with the organization that drafted him.

Baltimore Beatdown's Kris Jones is on site and tweeting away. Here's a roundup of today's presser:
