Former Husker DT Ndamukong Suh signs with Rams

While the New York Jets have taken themselves out of the running by rescinding their contract offer, Suh is still mulling over his other offers from the Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans Saints, and Tennessee Titans. He signed with the Los Angeles Rams the team announced Monday.

Suh was halfway through the $114 million, six-year deal he signed when he joined the Dolphins in 2015. He was scheduled to sit down with the Oakland Raiders the following day, but cancelled his visit. The Rams' franchise quarterback, Jared Goff, did the same.

Suh, 31, has frequently landed in disciplinary trouble during his eight seasons in the National Football League, which also included a five-year stint with the Detroit Lions.

The Jets made a one-year offer for the talented yet troubled defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh but pulled it when CEO Christopher Johnson expressed concern about the potential acquisition with general manager Mike Maccagnan.


The bold move to bring in Suh signals the Rams are in win-now mode, and not surprisingly Rams players, coaches and fans are overflowing with excitement over the news.

Under Phillips, Suh is expected to play nose tackle in 3-4 base sets. If football fans were surprised by how this team emerged out of nowhere during Sean McVay's first season as head coach, just imagine what could be in store for this team heading into 2018 when looking at all of these insane offseason moves.

Since then, they have built a star-studded defense to go along with a young, surging offense.

Is that a nice way of saying that Suh didn't want to do off-season workouts with the team or did Suh view the offer as too low?
