Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs told The Baltimore Sun today that he’s close to remaining with the team and locking up a new deal.

According to the story, the deadline to reach a new contract with players who have received the franchise tag is July 15 and if no deal is made, Suggs would play under the franchise tag for another year, earning $10.2 million this year.

“We are close to an agreement. We just have a few little things to work out,” Suggs told The Baltimore Sun. “I don’t want to go into great detail, but it’s things like the years of the agreement and incentives, but the basic framework has been done.”
