Damukong Suh shown last season that he could wait until much into the season to negotiate a contract with a team. Suh was signed by the Eagles in November 2022, and they played with him the entire season. One of Suh’s previous teams is willing to accept his offer to play in the 14th NFL slate, something he indicated interest in doing this offseason.
According to Field Yates of ESPN.com, Suh visited the Dolphins on Wednesday as part of their free agency visit. From 2015 to 2017, Suh was a member of the Dolphins. He joined Miami after the organisation approved a record-setting salary for a defender in the offseason of 2015.
According to Field Yates of ESPN.com, Suh visited the Dolphins on Wednesday as part of their free agency visit. From 2015 to 2017, Suh was a member of the Dolphins. He joined Miami after the organisation approved a record-setting salary for a defender in the offseason of 2015. This season, Miami has also been active adding players up front. Melvin Ingram returned and Jason Pierre-Paul, who was previously on New Orleans’ practice squad, was signed. While JPP was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, Ingram was getting ready to play again. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets that no Suh deal is imminent just yet.
After taking Suh’s $19 million annual contract off the books in 2018, the Dolphins have now made changes to their power structure.Since Suh’s tenure in Miami, the team has had two different head coaches (Adam Gase, Brian Flores, and Mike McDaniel). Currently, Chris Grier is the team’s primary decision-maker. However, Suh’s tenure with the Rams and Buccaneers has given him a plenty of experience playing in a 3-4 defence. That would be beneficial in terms of fitting the new DC Vic Fangio.
Suh is past his prime despite being named to the 2010s All-Decade squad. However, the former No. 2 overall selection has proven to be among the NFL’s most resilient defenders ever. Throughout his career, Suh has participated in 199 regular-season games and 15 postseason games. He has never missed a game due to an injury. Suh saw his first extended stint as a backup last season after joining the Eagles as a midseason addition while Jordan Davis was on injured reserve. With a 35% snap rate, Suh participated in eight games during the regular season and all three postseason games for the NFC winners.
While a Dolphin in 2016, Suh was selected for the Pro Bowl and received his sixth All-Pro selection. Two years after joining up with Aaron Donald to help the Rams advance to Super Bowl LIII, Suh collaborated with Pierre-Paul and Shaquil Barrett to help the Buccaneers win the Super Bowl. Suh waited until November to rejoin the active roster after the Bucs declined to re-sign him the previous season. Suh was not worried about waiting until much later in the season to have success anywhere when he spoke with the Ravens early this year over a deal.
The Dolphins’ defence is led by Christian Wilkins, with Zach Sieler, who was just extended, serving as an excellent backup.Raekwon Davis is the third starting D-line member for Miami. Despite the loss of edge rusher Jaelan Phillips last month, the team still has its best interior defensive lineman available.
Suh was coveted by the 49ers and the Eagles in the previous season. Despite playing without starting defensive tackles Aaron Hargrave and Erik Armstead in Week 15, the NFC-leading club had no discussions with Suh, according to Kyle Shanahan. Suh has just three weeks remaining in the regular season to locate a place to call home and make an attempt at acclimating himself before the playoffs. However, the frightening DT is still a compelling addition for a contender of a push for the Super Bowl
