First Published Feb 17 2014 04:59 pm • Last Updated Feb 25 2014 04:39 pm

NFL • Terrell Suggs has signed a four-year extension with Baltimore that saves the Ravens salary cap room and puts the linebacker in position to finish his career in Baltimore. The 31-year-old Suggs signed a six-year deal in 2009 that expired after the 2014 season. Now he’s signed through 2018.

At a news conference Monday to announce the extension, Suggs said, "Sizzle will be a Raven for life."

Suggs earned his sixth Pro Bowl invite in 2013. The 11-year veteran is the franchise leader with 94½ sacks.

Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome said Monday that he’s waiting to get all the details before deciding what action to take, if any.

• The Chicago Bears have agreed to a one-year contract with defensive end Austen Lane. The 6-foot-6 Lane appeared in two games with Detroit last season after playing for Jacksonville from 2010 to 2012.

Injury sidelines pole vault champ

track and field • New indoor pole vault world record holder Renaud Lavillenie will not defend his title in the world championships next month because of a foot injury. Soon after breaking Sergei Bubka’s 21-year-old record in Donetsk, Ukraine, on Saturday with 6.16 meters, Lavillenie botched an attempt at 6.21 and needed 16 stitches in his left foot. He said on Monday, "It’s not worth taking the slightest risk for the future."
