    But there are reports he injured himself practicing for a conditioning test, not playing basketball.

    That's still not football related because he wasn't doing it supervised by the team or in the teams facility. Not that it really matters since they would never do that to Suggs. I don't even think they did that to Gaither who they clearly had an issue with.

    Yes, that's why I said "if" it happened while playing BBall.

    It will depend on what the truth of the matter actually is. If it was a conditioning test, then I would agree there is 0% chance they would NFI him.

    OTOH, if it turns out that it was BB - as first reported - then I think they may be more inclined to do so. But, in the end, I would expect them to decide against it.

    You would give up a 3rd round pick, for a player to solve a problem, that you'll only have for ONE YEAR? Lardarius Webb was a 3rd round pick, that we'll have for YEARS to come. Yanda was a 3rd round pick, so was Dickson. I don't understand the thought that Osi is worth that...

    Thank you for posting this. I wonder if they put him on NWI, if it would open room to get the Flacco and Rice contracts done.

    The only thing that makes sense is for Suggs to go on PUP. At week 6 they start evaluate. By week 9 they either activate him or put him on IR. Not a chance he goes on NFI. That would be a complete dick thing to do. The $1.7 million in salary cap spaced saved would not be worth the damaged reputation the Ravens would have if they went that route.

    Perhaps, NFI isn't as far fetched as many thought -
