The Los Angeles Rams continued a fruitful offseason Monday by agreeing to terms with free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh on a one-year contract. Suh also has a reputation for not being a team player. The Rams could use him along side Michael Brockers and the 2017 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, Aaron Donald.
The 6-foot-4, 305-pound Suh, a three-time first-team All-Pro selection, entered free agency after being released by the Miami Dolphins on March 14.
Former Dolphins' DT Ndamukong Suh reached agreement with Los Angeles Rams on a one-year, $14 million deal, per source. The Rams, Saints and Titans are the three teams he continues to consider, reports say, after the Jets bowed out.
Like most players similar to Suh with previous attitude issues, it's easy to understand why some Los Angeles fans are concerned over the signing. In that time, the defensive tackle recorded 15.5 sacks.More news: Toys 'R' Us liquidation sales kick off with last minute bargains
If Suh remains healthy in 2018, he figures to be a critical piece in the Rams' push to the playoffs after they won the NFC West previous year.
In his eight National Football League seasons, Suh has 51.5 sacks and 103 tackles for loss during the regular season despite getting double-teamed most of the time. The Saints did have an improved defense previous year, but Suh is a Top 5 defensive lineman, and to have a player like that hitting the free market, the team has to look at that.
Maccagnan left no doubt that he wanted Suh, 31, a former All-Pro who was cut recently by the Miami Dolphins. Suh has started all but two games over that stretch, and compiled 51½ career sacks.
