Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs didn't hold back on anything, in a solid profile by Bleacher Report's Tyler Dunne, where the 36-year-old future Hall of Famer admits he's in the "third act" of his career as he heads into his 16th season. 

Never a fan of Roger Goodell, he seems to have softened his stance on the recently renewed NFL commissioner but still isn't a fan of him, or his salary.

I would definitely change the commissioner. This guy gets paid more than any coach, any player. I would definitely change everything about that. I just don't agree with it. It's my personal stance on it. Before I thought he was just a dictator who showed his favoritism. They've stripped some of the things that he's done, but I don't know. I'm just not a fan of the commissioner.

A portion of the piece that could give readers pause is Sugg's indifference to all things concussion-related, falling back onto an old-school mentality.

Other opposing players aside, he's been knocked out by his teammates but seems more perturbed by the hike in official concussion counts and what he perceives as an overreaction Goodell to the concussion crisis. 

Then, there's the worrisome passage by Dunne - "Suggs admits to forgetting "little s--t" but says he can still remember plays so, hell, that's good enough for him."
