The Ravens made a big deal about Terrell Suggs being a part of their offseason workout program from March until the start of voluntary minicamps.
Since then, however, Suggs has been nowhere to be found at Ravens headquarters.
The three-time Pro Bowl linebacker had pledged to work harder this offseason after a sub-par 2009 season, and being part of the team's workouts was supposed to be a major step towards getting him back to his peak form.
And Suggs might still be working hard, he just isn't doing so at Ravens minicamps.
After appearing in the team's mandatory minicamp, Suggs did not show for any of the team's voluntary OTAs, something which has not gone unnoticed by the coaches.
"We're not with him, so I can't vouch for anything he's doing or not doing," head coach John Harbaugh said today. "I think Terrell's got a good heart. I think he's a hard worker. I think he's very motivated to having a great season."
Harbaugh opted not to criticize Suggs for his absence at the voluntary minicamps, but the team can't be thrilled with the fact that their $63 million man has chosen to sit out on offseason drills.
Suggs said during the mandatory minicamp that he was down to around 270 pounds and hoped to play at 260 this season.
Because of his absence, it's anyone's guess what type of shape Suggs will be in when training camp rolls around in late-July.
"Him not being here through the OTAs...we'll just have to see," Harbaugh said. "We'll just have to see how he comes back to training camp and how he does. But I would expect a very motivated Terrell Suggs in training camp."
