Last year Ndamukong Suh signed with the Los Angeles Rams and elevated them into a Super Bowl caliber team. Now Suh will hit the open market and and there’s no doubt he’s one of the top free agents available. We don’t know whether or not he’ll return to Los Angeles but there’s been rumors flying around that the Eagles, Browns, Broncos, Vikings, and Seahawks are going to put bids in on the veteran defensive lineman.
It’s still too early to tell which of those organizations is the favorite but Philadelphia and Seattle were the only two playoff teams. We know Suh wants to play for a winner and those could be his preferred options. Another interesting fit would be the Cleveland Browns because they’re on the rise. John Dorsey just traded for Olivier Vernon and Suh would be another huge upgrade for that organization. Between Myles Garrett, Ndamukong Suh, and Olivier Vernon those guys could probably help the Browns win the AFC North. Then there’s the Vikings and Suh was recently spotted in Minnesota and while he claimed he was visiting his girlfriend’s parents you just never know. Mike Zimmer could use his defensive expertise to unleash Suh in a division that includes one his former teams (Detroit Lions). At this point it’s hard to pinpoint what his next move will be but Suh needs to play better in the regular season if he wants to earn the big bucks. After having less than 5 sacks in back to back years it’s a stretch that he’ll earn the $14M he got from Los Angeles. Therefore Suh has a lot of money riding on the line in 2019 and you have to remember time is winding down on his career. At 32 years old most of his NFL days are behind him and people need to see that he can still play at a high level.
