New England Patriots: Terrell Suggs

Brady: No Christmas card for Suggs

December, 18, 2013
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Ravens defensive end/outside linebacker Terrell Suggs and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady have something of a history with each other, as the two have exchanged words throughout the years (Suggs has had more to say than Brady, to be fair).

With Christmas just one week away, Brady was asked -- jokingly -- on Wednesday if he's already sent his Christmas card to Suggs' home in Baltimore.

"Probably not this year," he replied with a smile. "Maybe one of these years we'll get together for dinner or something."

While there's seemingly been no love lost between the pair of veterans, Brady shared high praise for Suggs as a player.

"He's a great player, he's always been a great player," Brady said. "He presents a lot of problems for an offensive line, an offense. He's big, he's rangy, he's powerful, he plays the runs and pass. It's really -- for a guy that size and how athletic he is, to play the way he does is amazing."

Sticking with the Christmas theme, Brady revealed where he does his holiday shopping this time of year.

" I'm probably keeping them in business," he said before quipping. "It's hard to find your wife something on"

Brady had a final one-liner during his press conference as he was addressing how the Ravens have accounted for the loss of longtime defensive standouts Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.

He highlighted veteran Daryl Smith as a key cog in replacing Lewis and also touched on their first-round pick, safety Matt Elam.

"Elam is [a] young player with all the skill and ability," he said. "He made some big plays for them, he's got some pretty key interceptions -- he made one last week.

"He's a really good player, they've got -- friggin' Baltimore," he continued lightheartedly. "They've always got a good defense."

Suggs not a fan of Brady's hair, 'attitude'

October, 1, 2013

It’s certainly not breaking news that there is no love lost between Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs and the New England Patriots, and particularly quarterback Tom Brady.

There’s a history of trash talk between the two (OK, mostly Suggs) that dates back to 2010.

So it comes as no surprise to learn Suggs was at it again in an interview with Lisa Salters for an “E:60” feature that airs at 7 p.m. ET Tuesday (see video above).

In the same interview in which he accused Roger Goodell of playing a role in last season’s Super Bowl blackout, he was asked by Salters what he thinks of Brady.

“I don’t think it’s appropriate for camera,” Suggs said. “I don’t like him. He don’t like me. I don’t like his hair. I don’t know. I don’t like his smug attitude. But then again he probably doesn’t like my a------ attitude. ... Everybody just seems to worship the guy, not me though.”
