The former Nebraska all-American is headed to South Beach, if ESPN's Chris Mortensen is correct.
Ndamukong Suh will sign with #Dolphins on Tuesday based off parameters around $114 million and $60 million guaranteed, per sources.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 8, 2015
Suh also will get $60 million in first 3 years of 6-year contract, based on parameters set between #Dolphins and Suh's agent, Jimmy Sexton.— Chris Mortensen (@mortreport) March 8, 2015
After the Detroit Lions declined to use the franchise tag on Suh, the defensive tackle became one of the most sought-after free agents in the NFL this off-season. Because of his penchant for drawing penalties, the Oakland Raiders looked to be a likely target, but very quickly, the focus seemed to turn towards the Miami Dolphins.
If the report is correct, Suh will be locked up in Miami for the next six years. Since the 2015 NFL schedule hasn't been announced yet, there's no way to know whether the Dolphins will be playing a home game on September 20, the day after the Huskers play the Miami Hurricanes in Sun Life Stadium.
How much money is that? Let's put it in perspective.
Only four players -- Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Drew Brees -- make more than the reported $19M annual value for Suh.— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) March 8, 2015
It hasn't been confirmed that Suh is celebrating the agreement by taking Washington Redskins quarterback Colt McCoy dancing.
