Player of Year honor not on Suggs' radar

Based on a 2011 campaign of a career-high 13 sacks, six forced fumbles and two interceptions, Terrell Suggs has been regarded as one of the top candidates to be named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

But the Ravens outside linebacker said that achievement is the last thing he is worrying about.

“I just ask myself how many Defensive Players of the Year – with the exception of [Green Bay Packers cornerback] Charles Woodson – have Super Bowl rings,” Suggs said Wednesday. “It definitely would be an honor, but I am in it for the overall No. 1 goal. At the end of the year, we’ll see where we all land. To add that along with some hardware, I think that’d be great. But if you ask me between the two, I would rather take the hardware [Lombardi Trophy].”
