Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has always sort of participated in offseason work as he felt like, and he’s not on hand for this week’s minicamp.

According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Suh was not present for the otherwise mandatory session, and has been excused by the team for a family matter.

The 30-year-old Suh has said he’s “definitely sick and tired” of the team not making more of a playoff push, and that he puts a lot of pressure on himself. He should, considering what they’re paying him. And he’s been a more regular participant in voluntary work lately.

The Dolphins are also without left tackle Laremy Tunsil this week, as he’s recovering from a hamstring injury and they don’t want to push it.

  1. Oh No!! Sound the alarm! Suh is not at camp!

    Whatever, dude has his own workout regimen just like others in the NFL. No big deal. He’s going to get hate because he’s the highest paid DT in the game…..for now. Aaron Donald will blow his contract out of the water and once he does, people will criticize him too. That’s just what people do, they look at stat sheets and compare that to the money they get, not know how the game actually works. Donald is probably the only DT better than Suh and both are top 10 defensive players in the game of any position. Get over it.

  2. Looks like Suh’s minicamp will be like his games against the Pats since signing with Miami. He doesn’t really show for them either. In games against New England Suh has averaged .125 sacks (NOT a misprint , one little half sack in 4 games) and 5.5 combined tkls for a D that surrendered 28 average points per game. And all that at the bargain basement price of $1.25m per game. For anyone keeping score at home that comes to $227k+ per tackle for teh worst D the fish have ever fielded. Gase is the real deal but he is stuck flushing $20m a year down the Suh toilet

    See, perfect example of someone looking at a stat sheet and comparing play to the pay. Not knowing anything about how the position works or his responsibilities. Thanks for the example.

    See, a perfect example of nebulous homer excuse making trying to masquerade as knowledgeable. Suh is a DT there is no mystery involved in what he does. When the opposing offense owns the line of scrimmage your D line failed. Not only do I know how the game works chipster I also understand something you never bother to consider, the business side of it. When a DT is getting franchise QB money and is no more than average against winning offenses while having little to no impact on the 2 games per year his team plays against the team that owns it’s division it is more than fair to point out his impact on the salary cap. In fact it is unrealistic not to. That D gave up an average of 28 points in those 4 games which included one 10 pointer New England was mailing in. Last year they gave up 33 per game to the Pats who ran at will against them. So what exactly do you contend Suh mysteriously did that anyone that simply watched the games didn’t see? Because I watched those games and NE went right at him. You just got done seeing the worst D your franchise ever fielded and you are making excuses for the financial albatross around it’s neck and you are fine with that? Imagine how much better that team might have done with adequate D line play. LOL, I’m not the one that doesn’t understand how things work chipster.
