Could The Raiders Be In The Market For Ndamukong Suh Again?

When the Dolphins signed Ndamukong Suh to a six-year, $114 million deal, they believed they were significantly boosting their lackluster defensive front.

As it turned out, the only significant boost was felt by Suh’s bank account.

Now Suh is reportedly being released despite the fact that his voided contract leaves a whopping $22.2 million in dead money to be carried by the Dolphins into the 2018 season.

Reggie McKenzie made a run at Suh in 2015. Is it possible that he’ll go after Suh again?

The Raiders desperately need help at defensive tackle, but like Muhammad Wilkerson, there is a lot to process with Suh.

Considering they couldn’t afford Richard Sherman, it stands to reason that the Raiders wouldn’t be in any better position to afford Suh – unless, of course, they value Suh a lot more than they did Sherman (which is possible).

Coincidentally, Sue hit social media early this morning with a message for fans (but really for teams) to keep an eye on his status in the days ahead.

Also, Suh would like everyone know he is working out early on a Monday morning.

For what it’s worth, Suh doesn’t necessarily come across as the kind of personality Jon Gruden would be willing to break the bank for – but who really knows where Gruden draws the line between extreme talent and behavior.

At the very least, it will be interesting to see what kind of interest Suh gets in free agency.

Still just 31, it’s entirely possible Suh has another good year or two left to play. The real question is, how committed will he be with his next team considering the amount of money he has already made in the NFL?
