Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs has taken several subtle digs at New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throughout the season, but he has been on his best behavior this week.
In a news conference with the media in Owings Mills today, Suggs said that he has moved on from any perceived fued with Brady.
"I guess the genesis of that was the incident in ’09, when I almost hit him below the waist," Suggs said. "That’s when it all started, but you grow and mature. As you all can clearly see, I’m not the same guy that I was in ’09. I’m definitely 20 pounds lighter. We had a lot going on, that defense. I’m pretty much over it. I respect him. Like I said before, when it’s all said and done, they are going to speak on three quarterbacks:Johnny [Unitas], Peyton [Manning] and him."
Suggs even declined to take any jabs at Brady's role as a spokesperson for UGG boots.
"I heard they are really comfortable," Suggs said. "I’ll take some. I’ll send him some Ball So Hard gear.”
Running back Ray Rice and Quarterback Joe Flacco followed Suggs to the podium and they were both wearing "Ball So Hard University" T-shirts that the linebacker has provided for his teammates.
