Professional career[edit]

Cleveland Browns[edit]

Suggs was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the 18th pick in the fourth round and 115th overall of the 2003 NFL Draft. He was unable to play a full season due to several injuries as well as the acquisition of Reuben Droughns. On Monday, August 14, 2006, Suggs was traded to the New York Jets for defensive back Derrick Strait, but the trade was voided when Suggs failed his physical, and subsequently returned to the Browns. He was then subsequently cut by the Browns.

Miami Dolphins[edit]

Suggs was claimed off waivers by the Miami Dolphins on September 3, 2006. He was released by the Dolphins on October 10, 2006.

Coaching career[edit]

Suggs is currently the quarterbacks coach for Division III Oberlin College. His coaching career began at Oberlin in 2008 as running backs coach.

In addition to coaching football at Oberlin College, in his spare time, Neal coaches football as well as track and field to aspiring athletes in North East Ohio.[1]
