The Los Angeles Rams took a gamble on Ndamukong Suh last offseason, and it paid off, as the Nebraska product helped lead the team to the Super Bowl. Now that both the NFL Draft and the first wave of free agency are over, it's a bit of a shock that Suh is still unsigned. Here are the five best landing spots for Suh now that the 2019 NFL Draft has concluded.

The Indianapolis Colts are in the midst of one of the most impressive rebuilds in the modern era, and Suh could be the missing piece that pushes them over the edge. With Darius Leonard and Justin Houston on the edge, the Colts could use an interior rusher to complete the defense. Adding Suh could help the Colts finally knock off the New England Patriots. Plus they have the most cap space left in the NFL at over $59 million.

The Los Angeles Chargers might have the best edge-rushing duo in the NFL in Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. They clearly needed to add an interior rusher, which they did by drafting Notre Dame's Jerry Tillery. Pairing Suh with all that talent on the Chargers' defensive line could help Los Angeles load up for a Super Bowl run in what could be one of Philip Rivers' final seasons. Their biggest issue is they only have $13 million in cap space, but perhaps they could clear some space by cutting another player.

The Dallas Cowboys are no stranger to splashy signings, and Suh would be just that. Additionally, Dallas lost David Irving in mysterious fashion this offseason, and singing Suh could help fill that void. Pairing Suh with DeMarcus Lawerence, Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith could arguably give Dallas the best front seven in the NFL. The Cowboys also have $20 million in cap space, so they could give Suh a decent deal.

4. Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears were the best defense in football last season, surrendering just 17.6 points per game (PPG). Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio's schemes were a huge reason for that, and he's now the new head coach of the Denver Broncos. Signing Suh could be a great way to make up for losing Fangio, and pairing him with Khalil Mack could terrify offenses in the NFC North next season.

5. New England Patriots

The defending Super Bowl champions have had quite a bit of turnover this offseason. The Patriots lost Trey Flowers to the Detroit Lions, and they need to find a way to improve this pass rush. New England did trade for Michael Bennett, but he's now 33 years old. Signing Suh could make this Patriots' defensive line a lot more explosive than it has been in a while. They are light on cap space ($13 million), but Bill Belichick knows how to move things around if he wants.
