Miami Dolphins Break Ground, Plant Flag On Foundation Of Superstar Ndamukong Suh

On Wednesday, March 11th at 4pm EST, shortly after pen was put to paper towards a six year 114 million dollar contract, Ndamukong Suh was introduced to the public by the Miami Dolphins Brass as their newest addition. Ndamukong (which means King Of Spears) was the second overall pick of the 2010 drafts first round. He is also a four time Pro Bowl starting selection, and three time All-Pro First Team representative as one of the most consistently productive players over his five year career.

His Dolphin contract averages out to 19 or so million per year which is approximately 5 million less than Detroit was scheduled to pay him, had they kept him for the 2015 season. The Lions attempted to talk him down to 18 million for 2015, but he decided to check out his value on the open market. In allowing Suh to leave while still owing him some 9 million dollar's, and having to trade a fourth plus a fifth round pick for the rights to his positional replacement, (Haloti Ngata of Baltimore who's no Suh) at another 9 plus million dollars. Detroit will be paying 18.2 million dollars as well as those 4th and 5th round traded draft picks for their one (vacated by Suh) defensive tackle position in 2015. Seems as though that the Lions should have simply franchised him rather than forfeiting future draft picks while giving the Miami Dolphins the opportunity to land this blockbuster of a man!

For a third consecutive year The Miami Dolphins have landed The Number One overall free agent prospect in the league with receiver Mike Wallace, offensive tackle Brandon Albert, and now defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. A press conference took place, and Mike Tannenbaum said "To get a player of Ndamukong's stature says a lot about our organization. The fact that he chose us speaks volumes about our organization, our chance to win and the foundation that has been laid here."

Suh stated that he learned a lot about the Miami Dolphins in their 2014 head to head match up in that "they were talented, well coached, played hard, never quit even after suffering injuries to major starting cogs such as Brandon Albert early-on, and that they were very tough to beat". Suh sacked Tannehill on Miami's second play of the game as Detroit jumped out to a 10 - 0 first quarter lead with 121 yards to Miami's one. Tannehill led the Dolphins on an impressive late fourth quarter go ahead touchdown drive just before the defense faltered to allow a last second game winning Lions touchdown in Detroit.

Suh said that "he's looking forward to playing next to the great Cam Wake, as well as opposite of him" and that "There's no way I can do it by myself. I want to be — without question — a cornerstone of it, but at the same time, our quarterback is going to be a cornerstone in Ryan Tannehill, who I have a lot of respect for because he has taken my hits and has given me some tough times in chasing him around. At the end of the day, I just want to be a cornerstone with this franchise and continue to do my part, on the field, as well as off the field." Suh and Wake are two players of which both require a minimum of two blockers in order to keep from getting to the oppositions quarterback which leaves numerous others versus one on one, if not unblocked entirely for the most part of every given game!

The "King Of Spears" also suggested. "I love going against Tom Brady we have a great mutual relationship, I've seem him at the Pro Bowl, played against him in the regular season, and I look forward to seeing him twice a year, he's a great quarterback, I hope he's around for a few more years so that I can get after him, he's a great quarterback, Congratulations to him if he hears this."

Previous to a late November 2014 game against the Detroit Lions. New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick had this to say about Ndamukong Suh.

""He changes everything, you can't let him penetrate or he'll foul the whole play up. You've got to be able to secure him on the line of scrimmage and again, that's a lot easier said than done, because of his talent and also some of the different looks they give you. He's very disruptive in both the running and passing game. He's got great effort. He makes plays in pursuit and on the backside. So, really there is no weakness to his game. He's got to be blocked on every play no matter what the play is."" HOW DO YOU DO, MY NAME IS SUH !

THANK YOU for an Open Minded Read, and we look forward to your angle of view : )) !!
