In case you missed it in today's Baltimore Sun, Justin Fenton reported that the $70 million lawsuit filed against Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs by the mother of his children was dismissed this week in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
An attorney for the player told Fenton that the couple is trying to reconcile.
Records show that on Thursday the lawsuit was "voluntarily dismissed in its entirety," and the same day, Candace Williams also petitioned a District Court judge to rescind a court order against Suggs that required him to stay away from her.
"The two of them are trying to work on their relationship," said Lynn Hoffman, an attorney for Suggs. "They were hugging in the [court] hallway. They could be sitting side-by-side right now with their kids."
Maybe this is a new beginning for Suggs. After coming into training camp out of shape and struggling through injuries (he missed his first game as a Raven this season), Suggs could use one.
In the first year of a $62.5 million contract that made him the highest-paid linebacker in the game, Suggs had just 4.5 sacks and was a non-factor most of the season. He told Coach John Harbaugh after the season that he would be staying in Baltimore in the offseason to concentrate on getting in shape and working out at The Castle.
Hoffman told Fenton that "he's obviously happy that this is all behind him, and he can move on now with his kids."
