Coach Sean McVay confirmed Ndamukong Suh will play nose tackle for the Rams.
The position in DC Wade Phillips' defense won't be a traditional nose, where Suh will be two-gapping, clogging lanes, and taking on multiple blockers; Phillips will instead allow both Suh and three-technique DT Aaron Donald to one-gap and get up field to attack quarterbacks. All three of five-technique DE Michael Brockers, Suh, and Donald received excellent marks from Pro Football Focus for their run defense last season. Brockers will focus on that aspect.

Rams signed DT Ndamukong Suh, formerly of the Dolphins, to a one-year, $14 million contract.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Suh took less to sign with the Rams. This has been the expected outcome for much of the past week after it was reported the Rams entered the conversation. Suh was reportedly very intrigued by the idea of teaming up with Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers while playing for DC Wade Phillips. It's a way for Suh to sort of rehab his value on a one-year deal as a 31-year-old. Even at his age, Suh remains one of the very best interior linemen, even if the counting stats weren't there for him in 2017. Look for Phillips to get the most out of him, allowing him to one-gap and attack upfield. This Rams defensive front and secondary is absolutely stacked; they now just need edge rushers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Rams "appear to be the front-runner" for Ndamukong Suh.

That appeared to be the case once the Jets bowed out of the sweepstakes, but Rapoport adds the Titans and Saints are still in the running. Suh was cut by the Dolphins two weeks ago.
Mar 26 - 8:41 AM

Jets CEO Christopher Johnson told reporters at the NFL Owners Meetings the team has rescinded their offer to free agent Ndamukong Suh.

The Jets initially emerged as the top landing spot for Suh given their abundance of cap space. New York had reportedly presented the "biggest offer" to him, but it's possible Suh was only using the team to leverage an even larger offer from the Rams, who now appear to be the favorites to sign him. The Titans and Saints also remain in the mix.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports it's "less than a sure thing" free agent Ndamukong Suh signs with the Jets.

The Jets have emerged as one of the top landing spots for Suh. The Rams still look to be the favorites, but the Jets have the most cap space and made Suh the largest offer. New Orleans and Tennessee also remain in the mix.
Mar 23 - 5:25 PM

According to Yahoo's Jordan Schultz, the Jets have emerged as a "serious suitor" for free agent Ndamukong Suh.

While the Jets haven't arranged a visit yet, coach Todd Bowles has spoken with Suh and told him "precisely" how the team plans on using him. Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, New York has presented the "biggest offer" for Suh, who is also being pursued by the Rams, Saints and Titans. The Jets have made considerable improvements to their team through free agency and adding Suh to the defense would be icing on the cake. Landing Suh would more than make up for the loss of Muhammad Wilkerson.
Mar 23 - 2:56 PM

Free agent Ndamukong Suh will no longer visit the Raiders on Wednesday.

It sounds like it will not be rescheduled, either. Suh is reportedly back home and not expected to make a decision Wednesday, but the Rams "made a strong impression on him," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The Saints and Titans also remain in the mix. Suh would be a strong fit with any of the three teams.
Mar 21 - 3:00 PM

Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz reports free agent Ndamukong Suh is "intrigued" by the idea of playing on the Rams' defensive line alongside Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers.

ESPN Rams reporter Alden Gonzalez adds that Suh remains in Los Angeles Tuesday evening and is scheduled to have dinner with the Rams tonight. He's expected to visit the Raiders on Wednesday if he makes it out of L.A. without a contract. Schultz also reports Suh "likes" Saints DE Cameron Jordan and wouldn't be opposed to playing alongside him in New Orleans. If Suh wants to win, it would seem the Rams and Saints are his top two suitors to this point.

Free agent Ndamukong Suh will visit the Raiders on Wednesday.

Suh keeps racking up the frequent flyer miles. He's already met with the Rams, Titans and Saints since his release from Miami last week. The 31-year-old is coming off another fine season that saw him earn PFF's No. 2 run-stopping grade among 79 qualifiers at defensive tackle. Outside of All-Pro Khalil Mack, Oakland's defense was a punching bag last season. He'd be a big get for the Raiders.
Mar 20 - 4:27 PM

Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz reports free agent Ndamukong Suh will visit the Rams.

Suh has already visited with the Titans and Saints. Suh told Schultz he realized how much the Titans have to offer as a playoff team with a formidable defensive line and the same can be said for the Rams. A combination of Suh and Aaron Donald, who combined for 16 sacks and 134 total pressures last season, would solidify the Rams' line with two disruptive presences versus both the run and pass.
Mar 18 - 11:57 PM

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports free agent Ndamukong Suh will visit the Titans in addition to the Saints.

Per Rapsheet, Suh plans to take more visits after that, but that will only happen if Suh doesn't hear the right dollar amount on visit one or two. The Cowboys were initially linked to Suh but have since been reported to be "out."
Mar 15 - 8:14 PM

NFL Network's Jane Slater reports the Cowboys are "out" on free agent Ndamukong Suh.

We're not sure the Cowboys have even been "in" on a single free agent this week. Suh admitted he's chasing the biggest paycheck he can get and is headed to New Orleans on a visit Friday. The Seahawks have also been linked to Suh, but Seattle likely prefers re-signing Sheldon Richardson to Suh.
Mar 15 - 4:13 PM

The Saints are reportedly working to schedule a visit with free agent DT Ndamukong Suh.

To date, New Orleans, Seattle, Dallas, and New England have all been linked to Suh, who is the top free agent left on the market. Although his sack totals dipped on bad teams in Miami, Suh remained one of the NFL's most disruptive interior presences versus both the run and pass. He turned 31 in January.
Mar 15 - 11:35 AM

Yahoo Sports' Jordan Schultz reports free agent Ndamukong Suh and the Seahawks have mutual interest.

Suh told Schultz he had a "great phone conversation" with coach Pete Carroll on Wednesday night. It is also notable Suh was in Seattle on Tuesday when he was officially cut by the Dolphins. Assuming the price is right, Suh would be a good get for a rebuilding defense.
Mar 15 - 10:11 AM

ESPN's Dianna Russini reports the Cowboys and Seahawks are interested in free agent Ndamukong Suh.

Suh's release didn't become official until Wednesday, so rumors were few and far between during the legal tampering period. Suh is the best player remaining on the open market, and though he was overpriced in Miami, he was still extremely effective. Headed into his age-31 season, Suh has never missed a game with injury, only suspension.
