Suggs was drafted 10th overall. Boller, who's competing with Chris Redman for the starting quarterback position, was drafted 19th overall after the Ravens traded this year's second-round pick and next year's first-round pick to the New England Patriots.
Last season, the 10th overall pick was offensive tackle Levi Jones. He received a signing bonus of $4.05 million on a five-year contract worth $8.475 million from the Cincinnati Bengals. Wide receiver Ashley Lelie, the 19th overall selection, received a signing bonus of $3.3 million on a five-year deal for $6.7 million.
Traditionally, though, quarterbacks receive far more lucrative contracts that include incentive clauses based heavily on playing time.
Because the Ravens don't report to McDaniel College until July 27, they have more time than several clubs to negotiate.
"We don't have to worry about waiting," Newsome said. "We're ready because we feel we do fair deals. Whether the deals are done in front of us, it doesn't matter."
"I think it could be done as soon as Friday," France said.
NOTE: Newsome said he's scheduled to meet with veteran defensive end Michael McCrary in the next three or four days before the club makes an announcement regarding his status next week.
