The Suh-weepstakes is finally over. Ndamukong Suh has agreed to a one-year, $14 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams. ESPN’s Adam Schefter was the first to report it:
Former Dolphins’ DT Ndamukong Suh reached agreement with Los Angeles Rams on a one-year, $14 million deal, per source. Suh took less to go to LA.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 26, 2018
Suh and Aaron Donald now manning LA’s front.
As Schefter points out and twists the knife for Detroit Lions fans, this now means that Aaron Donald and Ndamukong Suh will be lining up next to each other on an already strong Rams defensive line. The Lions could have had a chance at the exact same interior duo had the Lions drafted Donald in the 2014 NFL Draft. Instead, the Lions selected Eric Ebron—a player they couldn’t trade this offseason, and ended up cutting for cap room.
It’s not only frustrating for Lions fans to see their dream duo become a reality elsewhere in the NFL, but it makes a conference opponent that much tougher. Even worse, the Lions will play the Rams at Ford Field in 2018.
So Lions fans may have never gotten a chance to see Donald and Suh play together in Honolulu Blue, but they’ll get the opportunity to see them line up with Matthew Stafford in their crosshairs.
