Ravens outside linebacker and rabble-rouser Terrell Suggs has built his Pro Bowl reputation on harassing quarterbacks, but this training camp, he has targeted Ravens backup quarterback Matt Schaub verbally more than he has in the pass rush.
Suggs' verbal jabs at Schaub continued Saturday, when the longest-tenured Raven laid into the backup quarterback after both good and bad plays. After Schaub threw a downfield pass out of bounds, Suggs began hurling shots Schaub's way.
"Everything up until the throw looked really good," he yelled at Schaub, who looked away and didn't respond.
Then, later in practice, Schaub completed a touchdown pass to undrafted rookie DeAndre Carter, with safety Will Hill in coverage. Suggs did his best to comfort Hill.
"It's OK, Will," Suggs called out. "A broken clock is right twice a day."
These weren't Suggs' first barbs at the former Houston Texans quarterback. Last weekend, a string of incompletions led Suggs to remind Schaub: "Your guys are the guys in purple."
There were several other opportunities later in practice Saturday for Suggs to continue his onslaught, but considering Suggs took his cleats off with about an hour left in practice, he might have checked out and missed those chances.
But with each passing day, Suggs' thoughts on his backup quarterback are becoming better known.
