Ravens' Suggs said lockout helped him

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs says the lockout helped him have a strong season in 2011.

Suggs told WHB Radio in Kansas City, "Last year, to be totally honest with you, I had the time of my life during the lockout and wasn’t in a hurry to get back to work. I think that’s why, in total, I ended up having the season that I did. A lot of guys ended up pushing themselves too hard and ended up getting hurt trying to get ready for mini-camps and OTAs. Fortunately we didn’t have that burden on our shoulders and that’s why I think I had a great year."

Suggs said he enjoyed his off time and concentrated on a movie-making career he has started on the side.

While coaches probably wouldn't embrace the idea of important off-season work being lost being a good thing, the Ravens are certainly good with the results Suggs turned in last season with 14 sacks, seven forced fumbles and two interceptions.
