Texans practice squad pass rusher Steven Means provides speed on scout team
Houston Chronicle - over 1 year
Joining the Texans’ practice squad meant a new locker room for former Baltimore Ravens and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Steven Means and another adjustment to different surroundings. For Means, the third time proved to be the right fit after previous workouts for the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles without a contract offer. “I’m definitely excited,” Means said. “I feel blessed. This is another situation like the Ravens and the Buccaneers. In Tampa, I was with Gerald McCoy. With the Ravens, I was with two of the greatest linebackers with Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervil. Now, I’m with one of the greatest defensive players to ever play in J.J. Watt.” At 6-3 and 263 pounds, Means projects to be an outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. Having played in 11 games for the Buccaneers in 2012 and 2013, Means has six career tackles since being drafted in the fifth round in 2012. At the University of Buffalo, Means had 185 career tackles, 29.5 for losses, 18.5 sacks, three f ...

Steelers Edge Ravens 19-16 For 2nd Straight Win
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
PITTSBURGH -- PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Shaun Suisham stood in a euphoric locker room, game ball tucked firmly under his left arm and his team's once calamitous season inching its way back toward respectability. Not a bad day for a guy who insists he's just doing his job. Suisham's 42-yard field goal, his fourth of the day, lifted Steelers to a 19-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Seemingly out of it after stumbling through a winless September, Pittsburgh (2-4) has won two straight. "That's what we're supposed to do," Suisham said. "Hopefully we can start stacking wins here." Ben Roethlisberger completed 17 of 23 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown. He also hit Antonio Brown twice on Pittsburgh's final drive, putting Suisham well within range to win it. "We count on him to make it every time," Roethlisberger said. Why wouldn't he? Suisham is a perfect 14 of 14 this season. He drilled four field goals in last week's victory over the New York Je ...

Ball So Hard University Alum 'Hacksaw' Is Better Known As Terrell Suggs (VIDEO)
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
You may know him as "Terrell Suggs" but the Baltimore Ravens' veteran linebacker, apparently, matriculated at Ball So Hard University under the name "Hacksaw." This alias and alma mater were mentioned during the recorded player introductions played during the first quarter of the NFL opener between the Hacksaw's Ravens and the Denver Broncos on NBC. Longtime fans of Suggs -- or Hacksaw or Sizzle -- will know this isn't the first time that he's dropped a reference to Ball So Hard University. "A lot of guys on this team attended Ball So Hard University, including myself," Suggs told The Baltimore Sun after a similar reference in 2011. "The dean of students and president of the school is actually Shawn Carter." As indicated by the stature of Carter -- who you may know as Jay Z -- at BSHU, Suggs picked up the phrase from the song "Ni**as in Paris" off the "Watch The Throne" album.

REPORT: Browns Reel In Star Linebacker From Ravens
Huffington Post Sports - almost 4 years
CLEVELAND (AP) — Paul Kruger rushed his way to a Super Bowl win, and on to a huge payday. Baltimore's sacks leader last season agreed to terms Tuesday on a five-year, $40 million contract with the Cleveland Browns, who with their first move in free agency added a proven pass rusher and weakened the defending NFL champions. The 27-year-old linebacker will sign his deal on Wednesday before he's introduced at the team's training complex in suburban Berea. The Browns officially announced the agreement with Kruger on Tuesday night, a few hours after it was reported by The Associated Press and other media outlets. ESPN was the first to report Kruger was leaving the Ravens to join the Browns. "We are very excited about the addition of Paul Kruger to our team," new Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said in a release. "He is a talented linebacker who is going to make an immediate impact on our defense. When you put on the film you see physical ...

    Hours later, an MRI revealed that his achilles was torn, which prematurely ended his 2015 season.
    More Details Hide Details Key In December 2003, Suggs was charged with Felony Aggravated Assault stemming from a March 2003 incident in Arizona. Reports accused Suggs of assaulting a man with a reinforced rod and attacking another man in the parking lot of Phoenix Municipal Stadium after a basketball tournament. Suggs' brother was accused of hitting a man with a baseball bat in the same altercation. His accuser Jeryme Cook stated that the fight began with words exchanged between Cook and Rico Suggs, the football player’s cousin, but they went their separate ways. Reports stated that Terrell Suggs later showed up courtside of a game that Cook and his friends Anthony Henrie and Casey Cothern were watching. Allegedly, Terrell Suggs held a baseball bat to his shoulder, and was with Rico Suggs, brother Donald Suggs and two other men. Cook stated that after exchanging words with Suggs he and his friends walked away, but the Suggs group kept following them around the tournament grounds and eventually to the parking lot, where Cook said he figured he was going to have to fight Rico Suggs. Cook stated that at one point Terrell Suggs handed his kid brother the baseball bat and said, "If anyone jumps in you swing the bat to kill, not to hurt". A witness stated that Donald Suggs then stuck the bat close to Cook’s face. Cook said he swatted the bat away with his hand, turned to calm Henrie, and then saw Terrell Suggs take a swing that broke his nose and cheekbone.
