Ndamukong Suh signs $114 million deal with Dolphins
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) – Ndamukong Suh is coming to Miami, where he and his new team will both try to end their playoff droughts.
The 305-pound heavyweight in this year’s free agent class signed a $114 million, six-year deal with the Dolphins on Wednesday, and a news conference was scheduled. The contract made Suh the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history, surpassing J.J. Watt’s $100 million, six-year deal with Houston.
The Detroit Lions went 0-2 in the postseason in Suh’s five years with them, and Miami hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2008. But the Dolphins believe the three-time first-team All-Pro defensive tackle can transform them into a contender after consecutive 8-8 seasons.
Suh was hailed by many as the best defensive free agent in a generation.
