Rams agree to contract with Ndamukong Suh

Listen to this article

In a press release the Los Angeles Rams said they had agreed to terms with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Since 2015 Suh had been with the Miami Dolphins and before that the Detroit Lions, who drafted him with the second pick of the 2010 draft.

In his eight seasons in the NFL Suh has 55 stuffs (tackling runner behind line of scrimmage), 51 sacks, 418 tackles — 288 solo — forced four fumbles and recorded one interception. Not bad for an interior lineman. Adding Suh to the Rams defensive line, with Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers, will push the needle up on offenses next season, as he fits well with the defensive schemes of Wade Phillips.

The Rams traded defensive tackle Robert Quinn to Miami for some draft picks, which opened up some room for their salary cap issues. Fans will miss Quinn who, up until the trade, had been with the Rams since he entered the league in 2010. The fans will undoubtedly take a liking to Ndamukong Suh once he starts stuffing offenses and recording sacks, even if they have trouble pronouncing his name.
