DT Ndamukong Suh has agreed to a 1-year, $14 million deal with the Rams, according to Pro Football Talk. That adds Suh to a D-line already sporting arguably the league’s best lineman in Aaron Donald and talented DL Michael Brockers — all under well-traveled and accomplished DC Wade Phillips. The Rams defense — which also added CBs Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib this offseason — could be devastating, in real life and fantasy. Suh isn’t likely to deliver big IDP numbers but is certainly capable of DL2-level production, with upside beyond in the best situation of his career
As expected, the Dolphins released DT Ndamukong Suh and his big ol' contract Wednesday. Miami made the move despite incurring a $22.2 million cap hit, designating Suh a June 1 cut to spread the dead money over this year and next. Suh instantly becomes the top free-agent on the market. We'll be interested to see where the 31-year-old lands for both his IDP outlook and his potential effect on the team defense.
The league had suspended Lions DT Ndamukong Suh for 1 game after he purposely stepped on the ankle of Packers QB Aaron Rodgers during Sunday's Packers win. But Suh had the suspension changed to a $70,000 fine on appeal Tuesday, meaning that he'll play against the Cowboys this weekend. That provides a big boost to the Detroit defense and chips away at the upside for Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray. We've also added Suh to our playoff IDP rankings -- for the truly serious fantasy player.
Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has officially appealed his 2-game suspension for stomping on a Packers lineman last week. Considering the usual timeframe for such review processes, it seems likely this will make Suh eligible to play Sunday night against the Saints. (Could that have been the player's and/or team's motivation to appeal, by any chance?) Of course, with the blatant nature of his violation and Suh's dirty record this season, the league might hand down a quick "sit" command. We should know by Friday 1 way or the other. Suh doesn't make for a strong IDP play against the Saints anyway.
FOX's Jay Glazer reports that the league has suspended Lions DT Ndamukong Suh 2 games for his Thanksgiving stomp. Suh can appeal it to stay eligible for the Week 13 meeting with New Orleans, but his wrongdoing was obvious to anyone with the gift of sight. Suh's absence leaves more snaps for DTs Corey Williams and Nick Fairley, though neither should be an IDP target against the Saints' stout OGs.
