Ndamukong Suh was the best free agent left on the market, after being released on March 14 by the Dolphins. He has visited the Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints in the past week, before deciding to accept the offer from the Rams.
“We are excited to have Ndamukong as a part of the Los Angeles Rams,” – said the Rams general manager Les Snead in a statement. “He’s been an outstanding player in this league and we are looking forward to him being a part of our defense.“
Capturing Suh immediately propelled the Los Angeles Rams in a serious Super Bowl contender. He will join an already strong defensive line which consists of 2017 AP Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald and defensive lineman Michael Brockers. It is also important to note that the Rams added quality cornerbacks this season in Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.
Ndamukong Suh was drafted in the NFL by Detroit Lions, who took him second overall in 2010 draft. After four years with the team, he signed with the Miami Dolphins on a six-year, $114 million contract in 2015. During his time in the NFL, Suh established himself as one of best interior pass rushers, having 51.5 sacks and four forced fumbles in his career.
He received first-team All-Pro honors three times and made Pro-Bowl selection five times. One of Suh’s trademark characteristics as a football player is his durability since he only missed two games in his entire professional football career.
