Ndamukong Suh to Dolphins


The AFC East just got beasty!  Some body better hire some bodyguards for AFC quarterback in New England because Ndamukong Suh is coming to the AFC East and will be playing against the Patriots twice a year.

Suh will sign Tuesday for about $114 million with $60 million guaranteed, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen said. That’s in line with what Yahoo Sports’ Rand Getlin reported on March 4, that Suh should get about $60 million guaranteed. Nothing can be official until Tuesday, so technically it could change. But at this point that would be a surprise. Teams and players have been allowed to negotiate since Saturday.

If the numbers are correct, it sets a new bar for defensive players. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt got a $100 million deal with $51.8 guaranteed last year. Now Suh, the most coveted defensive player to hit free agency in many years, will beat that by a wide margin.

With this signing, the Dolphins have a more drastic look and the Lions don’t look so menacing defensively with out Suh. Now we find out about the Lions no longer have Suh to blame for shortcomings. Now Suh goes to the Dolphins, the AFC East has been the movers in the offseason so far Buffalo hiring Rex Ryan trading for LeSean Mc Coy and trading for Matt Cassell, the Jets hiring new coach Todd Bowles, General Manager Mike Maccagnan, then re-signing David Harris and acquiring Brandon Marshall from the Bears, and now the Dolphins agreeing to sign Suh. And figure none of those teams are not done wheeling and dealing yet. Oh by the way …Vince Wolfork is about to hit the open market as a free agent.
