It was probably done because of the undeserved pro bowl appearance over wood's 11 sack season

Hey, look at it this way. It could've been worse. They could've given a 6-year, $63 million deal to Matt Cassel and been the laughingstock of the league.

Wait, somebody actually DID do that?

this makes Harrison's contract look like a huge bargain

Harrison is clearly better than Suggs in ALL aspects of the game
