Los Angeles Rams sign DT Ndamukong Suh to 1-year deal

The Los Angeles Rams announced Monday they have signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, a five-time Pro Bowl selection in his eight seasons in the National Football League, to a one-year contract.

The Rams reached agreement with Suh on a one-year contract, the team announced from the owners meetings in Orlando, Florida, on Monday. The contract is reportedly worth $14 million, and while it's unclear how much of that is guaranteed, most of it probably is.

Under Phillips, Suh is expected to play nose tackle in 3-4 base sets.

"We are excited to have Ndamukong as a part of the Los Angeles Rams", Rams general manager Les Snead said in a statement.

While they lost stud cornerback Trumaine Johnson to the New York Jets in free agency, the Rams tagged Lamarcus Joyner and re-signed Nickell Robey-Coleman, providing defensive coordinator Wade Phillips with a stellar group.

Through eight National Football League seasons, Suh has started all 126 games he's played and recorded 418 tackles (288 solo), 147 QB hits, 103 tackles for loss, 51.5 sacks, forced four fumbles and recorded an interception. In that scenario, Donald would remain the 3-technique - lining up between the left tackle and the left guard - and Michael Brockers would return to playing defensive end on the opposite side.

The 6-foot, 4-inch, 305-pound Suh played with the Miami Dolphins the past three seasons, making 181 tackles and 15.5 sacks in 48 games.

However, he has only missed two games in his eight seasons as a pro, after in 2011 he was penalized for roughing up Evan Dietrich-Smith, then playing for the Green Bay Packers. He was selected for the Pro Bowl for the 2016 season and was the team's MVP for the 2017 season.

Suh likely could have made more money with the Titans or Jets, but the Rams are widely considered a team on the rise - and Suh has never won a playoff game despite strong individual performances in each of his three postseason appearances.
