Ndamukong Suh DL MIA 4 months ago

Suh has officially signed a six-year deal with the Dolphins, worth a reported $114 million, the Miami Herald reports.

The three-time NFL All-Pro thus becomes the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history and he'll be counted on by the Dolphins to anchor the team's defensive line for years to come. In real terms, Suh's impact on the team's overall team defense will be massive, while his tackle (53) and sack (8.5) numbers from 2014 give him relevance in fantasy IDP formats as well.

Suh is in line to sign with the Dolphins, ESPN.com reports.

Per the report, the deal -- which can occur once the NFL's new league year officially begins on Tuesday -- the parameters of Suh's six-year contract agreement with the Dolphins would involve a sum of $114 million, with $60 million in guaranteed money. The defensive tackle -- whose addition to the Miami defensive line would provide a huge boost to the unit -- is coming off a 2014 season in which he recorded 53 tackles and 8.5 sacks in 16 games for the Lions.

Suh will not receive the Lions' Franchise tag for the 2015 season.

Tagging Suh would have cost the Lions $26.9 million for the 2015 season, but the club decided the price was too steep to warrant the move. Instead, Suh will likely become a free agent and will be allowed to test the market. He finished the 2014 season with 8.5 sacks, a career-high 21 tackles and 37 quarterback hurries, and will likely demand a large contract as the top defensive tackle in free agency.

Suh won the appeal of his one-game suspension and will be allowed to play in Sunday's Wild Card Round game against the Cowboys, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Suh was facing a one-game ban for stepping on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Week 17, but his suspension was oveturned by an arbitrator. Though he must still pay a $70,000 fine, Suh will be available for the Lions' playoff opener.

Suh has been suspended for Sunday's game against the Cowboys for stepping on Aaron Rodgers' leg during Week 17's loss to the Packers, mlive.com reports.

Assuming Suh's suspension isn't overturned on an appeal, with fellow starting defensive tackle Nick Fairley needing a "miracle" to return to action this weekend, the Lions figure to roll with a DT combo of Andre Fluellen and C.J. Mosley against the Cowboys on Sunday.

Suh (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Suh will suit up for what could be his final regular season home game in Detroit (he is a free agent after this season). Feel free to use him as you normally would.

Lions head coach Jim Caldwell said Thursday that he expected Suh (illness) to return to practice Friday, but Suh was not present at the portion of Friday's practice open to the media.

You know the bug that is making its way around the Lions' facility is nasty if it's strong enough to keep Suh out of practice for two days in a row. On Thursday, Caldwell would not rule out the possibility of Suh missing Sunday's game against Minnesota. "It's not out of the question," Caldwell said. We should know more after the Lions release their official injury designations.

Suh didn't practice Thursday due to an illness, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Suh's absence from practice marks the first of his five-year career due to a health concern, which should spur IDP owners to watch his status in advance of Sunday's game versus the Vikings. His disruptive style has so far translated to 38 tackles (32 solo), 5.5 sacks, and one fumble recovery in 13 contests this season.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the Lions are willing to let walk-year DT Ndamukong Suh reach the open market next offseason.

Per Rapoport, the Lions want an "informed" Suh to "sign a deal he's happy with." It's a bizarre tact, one that would all but assure Suh leaves as a free agent. Players of his caliber almost never hit the market. It's possible the Lions are simply tired of the Suh experience, but he's an irreplaceable presence up front.
