Report: Dolphins DT Ndamukong Suh likely to practice Tuesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2015) Dolphins newcomer Ndamukong Suh is expected to be at the team's practice Tuesday, a source has told the Palm Beach Post.

The presence of the prized defensive tackle had been in doubt since he skipped all but the first day of voluntary OTAs so he could work out with his private trainer. Joe Philbin has been adament about his desire for every player to attend OTAs.

Suh signed a six-year, $114 million contract in the offseason. He is not required to join the team until the three-day minicamp, which is scheduled to begin June 16.


Dolphins: Newcomer Ndamukong Suh must earn the big bucks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) The Dolphins made Ndamukong Suh the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history when they signed him to a six-year, $114 million contract with $60 million guaranteed.

Now they want him to earn it. And he has been made aware of that.

"I challenged Ndamukong," said vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum on 640 AM. "I talked to him. We have a lot of young players not only on the defensive line but on our team. If we were sitting here in 10 years and Jordan Phillips is talking about hopefully the career he is having, I'd love for him to say that in his formative years Ndamukong Suh impacted him.

"A lot of resources are going to Ndamukong. We're not hiding that. In a cap system players who take up a big part of your cap have to do more than just play well."

Suh has already raised a few eyebrows by his absence. He showed up for the first day of voluntary workouts but has been away from the team since, claiming he has opted to work with his personal trainer. But fellow Dolphins lineman A.J. Francis isn't complaining.

"He's the best d-lineman in the league so if we wants to train somewhere else that's his prerogative," Francis said. "And nobody can tell him otherwise."


Dolphins cleared of tampering charges in signing Ndamukong Suh


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015)
The Dolphins have been cleared of tampering violations in their signing of free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, according to the Miami Herald.

Miami was accused of the violation when it was reported that Suh would sign with the team two days before teams were allowed to offer contracts to players. The NFL ruled the Dolphins didn't violate any of the rules after going through their phone records, which is required by the league.

Suh was signed to a six-year, $114 million this offseason by Miami. He totaled 53 tackles with 8 1/2 sacks in 16 games for the Lions in 2014.


DT Ndamukong Suh makes good first impression with Dolphins


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(4/20/2015) Ndamukong Suh, who rarely participated in offseason workouts while a member of the Lions, was present Monday for the first day of the Dolphins' workout sessions, per the Miami Herald. 

The defensive tackle signed a six-year $114 million contract with $60 million guaranteed, and the Dolphins have to be happy they are getting an early return on their investment. 


Report: Lions don't plan to file tampering charges regarding Suh


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) The Lions have no plans to pursue tampering charges against the Dolphins over defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, a source told the Detroit Free Press

Suh agreed to terms on a six-year, $114-million deal with the Dolphins about 24 hours into the free-agent negotiating period. The parameters of the deal were leaked to the media days before the official start of free agency on March 10, according to The Palm Beach Post. Even though the Lions don't plan to pursue this matter, the NFL still has the right to initiate their own investigation.

Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Tuesday the league has not contacted him about a tampering investigation. NFL spokesperson Michael Signora declined comment.

"That's a league issue, you have to ask them," Lions president Tom Lewand said. "That's a league policy, that's a league issue. That's a league matter for them to decide."


Lions' Mayhew says Ndamukong Suh's departure could be benefit


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2015) While the Lions may not see the benefit of having Ndamukong Suh on the 2015 roster, general manager Martin Mayhew said the team may benefit in the future, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Suh signed a $114 million contract with the Dolphins, which Mayhew said was out of their price range.

"I think anytime you lose a quality player like that, especially in the short term, that is to your detriment," Mayhew said. "I think in the long term, I think we're going to be glad we don't have that contract on our books. But in the short term, that's an issue."

If Lions did re-sign Suh, Mayhew said the team would've had a hard time signing other quality players.

"There's a lot of different ways to give somebody $100 million, so a lot of times the structure comes into play, too, and all those things matter," Mayhew said. "But I know we have some quality players on our team that we probably couldn't keep if we had that deal on our books."


Ndamukong Suh: 'Money was the most important factor'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/11/2015) Fresh off signing a six-year $114 million contract with $60 million guaranteed, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said he chose the Dolphins because they made the best offer. "I would say money was the most important factor," Suh said at a news conference.

Suh added, however, that it was important to him to join a strong organization with a lot of talented players. The Dolphins have a "great nucleus," Suh said, mentioning quarterback Ryan Tannehill, cornerback Brent Grimes and others.

Miami hasn't made the playoffs since 2008. Asked if he feels pressure to lead the Dolphins to the postseason, Suh said: "I'm excited about the pressure and I don't necessarily look at it as pressure. I look at it like something I'm built for."

A four-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro, Suh said his time in Detroit was "nothing short of amazing." He leaves Detroit after five seasons in which he racked up 239 tackles, 36 sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception.

The second overall pick in the 2010 draft, Suh has racked up 36 sacks in his five-year career, incluidng 8 1/2 sacks in 2014. He is set to receive $60 million in the first three years of a six-year contract.

He has totaled 181 tackles, 36 sacks and one interception since the Lions took him with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. The Dolphins, Raiders, Colts, Jaguars, Giants, Redskins and the Lions have all reportedly expressed interested in Suh.

Report: Dolphins confident they will land DT Ndamukong Suh


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/6/2015) The Dolphins will be calling Jimmy Sexton to discuss their interest in signing Ndamukong Suh once free agency begins. According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins remain confident about their chances of landing Suh.

The impending free agent is scheduled to visit the Raiders next week. Outside of Miami and Oakland, the Colts, Jaguars, Giants, Redskins and the Lions have all reportedly expressed interested in Suh. According to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel earlier this week, owner Steve Ross may be prepared to make a high bid on Suh, who could sign the largest deal by a non-quarterback in NFL history. Kelly noted that rival executives believe that Suh to Miami is a "done deal."

Suh is coming off a contract that paid him over $12 million annually, and will likely command a $100-plus contract once he hits the open market. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft completed his fifth season in the NFL with the Lions. He has totaled 181 tackles, 36 sacks and one interception in his career.

Lions' Mayhew 'not leaning any way' on possible Suh restructure


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew indicated all options are still on the table when it comes to bringing defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh back in 2015.

Mayhew also said that while talks between the Lions and Suh's agent Jimmy Sexton have been "extensive," neither side can be described as nearing a deal. Franchising Suh would be difficult due to the fact that hiis tag would be worth $26.9 million for the 2015 season.

Suh is one of the NFL's most dominant defensive tackles in the game. In 2015, Suh totaled 53 tackles and 8 1/2 sacks.

Barring a franchise or transition tag, Suh is set to hit the market when the league year begins on March 10. The Lions will reportedly have a cap charge of $9,737,500 in 2015 for Suh regardless of whether he re-signs with the team, is franchised or moves on to another team.

Suh, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft, completed his fifth season in the NFL. He has totaled 181 tackles, 36 sacks and one interception in his career.

The Lions have the next two weeks to place the tag on Suh. Tagging Suh would elevate his salary to $26.87 million for the 2015 season. If no deal can be reached by March 7 and Suh is not tagged, he'll become a free agent March 10.


Teryl Austin anticipating Ndamukong Suh staying with Lions


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) The top free agent in this year's group is Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who's set to earn a big pay day at some point this offseason.

Though it's quite possible for Suh to leave Detroit, defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is still factoring his key defensive cog to be back with his personnel in 2015.

“It hasn’t crossed my mind,” Austin told the Lions' official website. “I’m planning on him being back.”

The Lions have until March 7, when the legal tampering period begins, to strike a long-term deal with Suh before other teams can speak to his representation. The Lions also have the option of franchising Suh, though that number is projected to be a $26.87 million tag figure.

As for Austin, he understands the importance of having Suh back. And until he's gone, Austin appears to be acting like he's sticking around.

"You can’t get around it. You can sugar coat it or say whatever you want, but he’s a great player. He changes the game," Austin said.


Lions' Ndamukong Suh's contract voids, set for free agency


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh had his 2015 contract year void Friday, per CBSSports.com's Joel Corry.

Absent a franchise or transition tag, Suh is set to hit the market when the league year begins on March 10. The Lions will have a cap charge of $9,737,500 in 2015 for Suh regardless of whether he resigns with the team, is franchised or moves on to another team, per the report.

Suh is in line to be one of the top free agents on the market during the 2015 offseason and has expressed interest in joining the Seahawks, though budgetary concerns may prevent Seattle from being heavily involved. He recorded recorded 8 1/2 sacks and 53 tackles in 2014.


Report: Ndamukong Suh wants to sign with Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh wants to sign with the Seahawks, according to Bleacher Report.

The Seahawks are Suh's number-one choice, per the report. However, it may be difficult for the Seahawks to fit Suh in the budget, considering that quarterback Russell Wilson will soon be offered a huge contract extension. Marshawn Lynch, Bobby Wagner and Russell Okung are among the other prominent Seahawks who are scheduled to reach unrestricted free agency after the 2015 season. Suh, who recorded 8 1/2 sacks and 53 tackles in 2014, is poised to land a big free-agent deal this offseason.


Charles Woodson would like Ndamukong Suh on Raiders


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is set to be one of the NFL's top free-agent targets . At least one NFL veteran has made it clear he'd like Suh to join his team.

Speaking to ESPN.com, Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson said that Suh is the type of dominating defensive player that any team would want to add.

“I know I would be no different. That guy is one of the best, overall, period in the NFL," Woodson said. "Would I like him on our team? Believe it.”

Suh was taken by the Lions with the second-overall pick in the 2010 draft. Until March 7, when the legal tampering period begins, NFL teams won't be able to negotiate with players' agents. Until then, the only team that can stay in contact with Suh's agent, Jimmy Sexton, is Detroit. The official free-agent period starts March 10, when the new league year begins.

The Lions have reason to bring Suh back as they'll have a $9,737,500 cap charge for Suh regardless if he's franchised, re-signed or gone, due to bonus money prorated for the 2015 season.

One reason Woodson would like Suh is to make the Raiders' defensive backs' jobs easier. In 2014, Oakland allowed 238.1 yards through the air per game, which ranked 17th in the NFL.

“The better your front is, the better it makes your job as a defensive back and the ability to know that the ball is coming out soon," Woodson said.


Lions' president optimistic team will re-sign Ndamukong Suh


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) Lions team president Tom Lewand is expecting the team to be able to re-sign defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

"I really do believe he's got a lot invested in here, in himself and the community and the football team," Lewand said Sunday morning during an interview on WDIV-TV's Flashpoint. "He wants to have success in the NFL, obviously, but he wants to do that with us.

"I think there's a very, very good chance that we can get something done with him in the next few weeks."

Suh can become a free agent if the team does not use their franchise tag on him by March 2. 

"We've had a good chunk of our salary cap tied up in three players over the last few years," Lewand told WDIV. "Matthew, Calvin and Ndamukong have all had very lucrative contracts under the old rookie system, and even as Matthew and Calvin have done their extensions. So we've done that, we've lived in that environment. There's no reason we can't continue to live in that environment."


Lions' Calvin Johnson wants to keep Ndamukong Suh in Detroit


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson said he's willing to do just about anything to keep defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in a Lions uniform, reports MLive.com.

Suh is set to become a free agent in March if the Lions cannot reach a deal with him and Johnson said he wants Suh to remain a Lion.

"I'll do whatever I got to do," Johnson said.


Justin Tuck: Raider Nation would appluad signing Ndamukong Suh


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) If defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh doesn't sign a long-term deal with the Lions, then he will become a free agent March 10 and there will be plenty of teams interested in the Pro Bowl lineman. 

Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck indicated if Suh wanted to sign with Oakland, then he would be welcomed in Raider Nation.

"(He's) Raider-ish," Tuck said, per the Detroit Free Press. "And that's one of the reasons why I know Raider Nation would applaud that move, beyond the fact that he's an awesome football player. He kind of fits the mold of ... the toughness and the ferocious player that built the Oakland Raiders."

It is speculated Suh will receive a contract worth at least $100 million. Tuck believes the three-time All-Pro deserves such a lucrative deal.

"The thing about him, you know what you're getting every day. Some of the tactics, you could probably do without, but he's a hell of a football player," Tuck said. "I would love to have the opportunity to line up beside of him and let him take all the double teams that I normally take."
