Ravens best free agent tourney: Third round of Terrell Suggs Region

New, comments

The Elite 8 of the free-agent tourney is now here.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

In the second round of the Ravens best free agent tournament, it paid to be a No. 3 seed. In three of the four regions, a No. 3 won.

In the Terrell Suggs Region that was the case, with No. 3 Tony Siragusa beating No. 2 Steve Smith with 77 percent of the vote. I'd be willing to guess that  Siragusa's major contributions to a Super Bowl title gave him the edge over Smith, who may have been over-seeded based on recent memory.

No. 1 Derrick Mason handled No. 4 Bernard Pollard easily as well.

Only eight players remain as we're now in the Elite 8 round. Here's how the Terrell Suggs bracket has shaped out leading to the region championship:

Suggs Round 3

About the matchup:

No. 1 Derrick Mason vs. No. 3 Tony Siragusa

Mason signed with the Ravens in 2006 after beginning his career with the Titans. He went on to become the Ravens' most prolific receiver with 5,777 yards and 29 touchdowns. Mason was a safety net for Joe Flacco, helping the then-young quarterback on early in his career. He retired as a Raven instead of as a Titan.

Siragusa signed with the Ravens in 1997 and endured three long and tough seasons before the dominating defense of 2000 emerged. Siragusa played a major role for that Super Bowl team inside on the defensive front. Siragusa spent five seasons with the Ravens before retiring.
