Defensive Tackle Ndamukong Suh

I don’t have to give this guy much of an introduction. For those of you who are Jay Cutler truthers, you probably still can’t stand Ndamukong Suh. After the few times he did Cutler dirty, I have to say I was a bit heated, myself.

But, at this point in his career, Suh has grown up a little bit (maybe) and is a player on a mission for a Super Bowl ring. He’s earned tons of money throughout his career, and is known as one of the most dominant defensive linemen of the last decade or so. He’s been given a lot of labels, whether it be “dirty” or “nasty,” yet he is still a solid player I’d want on my team — assuming the price was right.

Despite only finishing with 4.5 sacks last year, Suh was still an active member of that defensive line. Obviously, there aren’t too many sacks to go around when Aaron Donald is scooping up most of them. But, Suh showed signs he was still a capable player in 2018.

It would be hard for the Bears to start Suh over Eddie Goldman, who has become a force at nose tackle. But, last year, Wade Phillips moved Suh around a little bit and that’s what the Bears could do with him in Chicago. For downs that Goldman is resting, Suh may be at the nose. On other occasions, he may line up at end.

He’s become a bit more versatile and, on a cheaper deal, I would love to see him in a Bears uniform. It’s been over a month now, so he isn’t likely to get anything close to the 1-year, $14 million contract he signed last year with the Rams.
