Ihedigbo will be re-united with defensive coordinator Terry Austin. He is expected to replace Louis Delmas. Ihedigbo, 30, registered a career-high 101 tackles, three interceptions and two forced fumbles.
Ihedigbo, 30, set career highs with 100 tackles, 11 passes defensed, three interceptions and two fumble recoveries last year. The paper says Ihedigbo is already creating a buzz one month before free agency.
Suggs' contract expires after next season. He is due to earn $7.8 million in 2014 and would represent a $12.4 million cap hit for his team. His performance down the stretch this season is a concern, leading to speculation that he could be cut to save the team money.
Ihedigbo believes defensive-minded Browns coach Mike Pettine, who served as a Ravens defensive coach from 2002 to 2008, will seek to snap up Suggs.
"You gotta think Mike Pettine got the head-coaching job in Cleveland," he told the team website "Are they going to come in and try to get Terrell Suggs, and put him right opposite Paul Kruger like he was before?"
The Browns are still looking to ramp up their outside pass rush. Kruger and rookie Barkevious Mingo proved disappointing in 2013. But Suggs also struggled, managing just two sacks in the last eight games after posting eight in the first eight games.
General manager Ozzie Newsome has prioritized the acquisition of a starting free safety this offseason. If he lands one, Matt Elam would then move from that position to strong safety, where he is more experienced and comfortable.
