Ndamukong Suh is past his prime, but he proved he can still turn it on when it really matters. Suh was a force to be reckoned with in the playoffs, tallying 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks in three postseason games. However, now that the Los Angeles Rams have re-signed Dante Fowler to a 1-year, $12 million contract, it seems like Suh is once again switching teams. So let's break down the three best free agent destinations for the dominant defensive tackle.
3. Seattle Seahawks
The Seattle Seahawks were fine defensively, but they need a boost on the interior of the defensive line. The Seahawks struggled getting in opponent's backfields last season, surrendering an average of 4.9 yards per carry (32nd in the NFL). Signing Suh could take this team to the next level, as he can generate pressure on the interior, allowing Bobby Wagner to rack up tackles.
2. New England Patriots
The New England Patriots already lost their best defensive lineman, Trey Flowers, to the Detroit Lions this offseason, so they need to do something to bolster their pass rush. The Patriots acquired Michael Bennett, and the idea of pairing him with Suh might be too tempting for Bill Belichick to resist.
1. New Orleans Saints
Sheldon Rankins is projected to miss the first six weeks of the 2019-20 season with an Achilles injury, which hurts the New Orleans Saints' pass rush. The Saints already brought in Malcolm Brown and Mario Edwards Jr., but neither player projects to have the kind of impact that Suh would. The Saints have lost in heartbreaking fashion in back-to-back postseasons, and Suh is exactly the kind of high-impact player that could finally take this team over the top.
