Report: Ndamukong Suh won’t visit Raiders

Ndamukong Suh‘s free agent tour reportedly won’t be making a stop in Oakland.

Word on Tuesday was that Suh would be meeting with the Raiders on Wednesday, but NFL Media reports that the visit will not happen. There’s no word on which side may have moved to cancel the get-together. Instead, Suh is expected to head home where he’ll presumably be weighing his options.

Suh has met with the Titans, Saints and Rams since being released by the Dolphins after the league year started on March 14. There have not been any specific reports about any offers made by those teams at this point, but the decision to pass on the Raiders meeting could be a sign that someone’s made one that Oakland wasn’t prepared to match.

Suh is the only one of PFT’s Top 20 free agents who has not signed a contract or received a franchise tag. Five other players in our Top 50 are in the same category.

  1. Wants to be part of a devasting defensive line and perhaps get a shot at super bowl it’s the rams all day

  2. Never had hope of him coming to Oakland…although he is a force in the middle…his price tag was too much for the Raiders…he is still looking for the big payday…

    probably looked at their cap and saw they wouldn’t be the top bidder. why waste his time? NEXT!

    I think you nailed it. His agent can be talking with the Raiders and tell them that the discusions have been in the _______ range. If the Raisers are thinking thats already outside what they are willing to do they will easily agree with the agent that its better to not waste everyone’s time on something pointless. It would not be an acrimonious discussion or anything like that. Just a simple business chat like any other.

  4. I find it comical that many feel the Rams will have a devastating D-line if Suh commits to player there. I remember many saying the same thing when Detroit drafted Nick Fairley. My gutt tells me the Titans will offer the most money. If that is the case, then that is where he is going.

  5. The Raiders were in cap hell for years. They could have pushed money back to 2019 and beyond but the credit card would come due eventually. I’m sure there was a number that they could have worked with but it looks like someone made an offer they weren’t willing to beat. Suh would have been nice but he is 31 and you don’t want risk cap hell for a guy that age. The Raiders have a ton of money for 2019 it’s just this year is a strapped year trying to get Mack under contract and bring in qualtiy free agents. Not too happy with Reggie’s drafting but his cap work has been remarkable.

    After this thoughtful and intelligent post I open the forum back up to the trash.

  6. Welcome to Seattle Suh. Please bring all your nastiness with you. We need more grit. We’ll take the occasional 15 yarder at the right time in exchange for a good gut blow to the middle of the opponents o-line.

    The Rams have been building well and will be quite good this year with or without Suh. But that said, I agree there has been a bunch of folks still managing to overstate it.

  8. .
    Someone better keep an eye on those tricky Titans. They addressed their needs at RB and CB with former Patriots Dion Lewis and Malcolm Butler. Adding Suh would make their defense quite formidable.
    .

  9. Suh joining the Raiders would have been nice but this guy just cares about the biggest contract he gets, made a fortune from the Dolphins and still wants even more.

    Shame but hes just after the money

  10. You all must not know the Saints have the lowest Cap space $2.3M besides the Cowboys. The Titans have plenty of room $38M. Ironically, the Dolphins have $27M after getting rid of him 🙂

  11. The Raiders are not in a good financial situation. They dont have much money and they need to pay Mack and Cooper big money soon. They better hope Jordy can still play or they team is effed for the next 2 seasons.

  12. Suh is a good player, but his play doesn’t really equate to wins. Miami paid him franchise QB salary money and their record showed no change from before he was signed by them. Detroit was never a true contender with Suh either.

  13. You all must not know the Saints have the lowest Cap space $2.3M

    Yeah, well, Loomis doesn’t believe in the cap. And of course he wants to get paid — he’s one of the best players at his position. I’m good at what I do, I don’t give discounts for funsies.

    Your gut is wrong. Nick Fairley isn’t the reigning NFL Defensive MVP.

  15. He cancelled because he couldn’t determine where to go. Las Vegas, Los Angeles or Oakland…

    If their fan base won’t support their team why should he?

    Boise Raiders, coming in 2022…

    ====================================
    I find it comical that you’re comparing apples to oranges. The common denominator is Suh who is still a force and clog in the middle of the line. The two factors are Aaron Donald and Nick Fairley. One is the reigning defensive player of the player and the other was a rookie.

  17. Shame is that he can be a dominant player when he wants to be. Even better than Mack and Donald. He just chooses to play at a subpar level at times because he feels the others players don’t deserve his best. That is why Miami sent him packing. They would of continued to pay him had he been a superstar. He isn’t and won’t ever be again. He is another me first player and that is a shame considering he has already earned all the money he and his great great grandkids will ever need.

  18. Suh is about a deep as a puddle. Money is the only motivation for him period. His services go to the highest bidder, end of story.

  19. Quite surprising. The NFL’s arguably most hated player seemed a perfect fit for the NFL’s most hated team and fan base. So much for that match made in heaven I guess.

    after Carrs 2016 year
    after the Raiders won 12 games in 2016

    most people felt the Raiders would have a top Offense in 2017, the same way you feel about the rams defense for 2018.

    Look at what happened, so don’t put anything in writing because you might be disappointed.

    I’d choose Boise. Idaho is fantastic!

  22. Money has been #1 in his head since the Dolphins dumped him.
    It was a stupid contract that most wouldn’t even consider.

  23. Hey Suh — come to LA. No place else offers our opportunities to market yourself as a brand. And you won’t stand out here. This is a big pond with a lot of big fish. It will be easy for you to walk in public and be anonymous. You can buy a house in the hills with an amazing view. And our weather — this is paradise.

    For anyone who isn’t named Ndamukong Suh, our weather is terrible … you should never ever think about moving here. People are mean. Stay where you are.

    they are in cap hell so there is no way

    Do you ever say anything else? You think everyone is in cap hell. But you also say Patriots aren’t cheaters so it kind of shows just how little you know

    I don’t … they will.

  26. If each individual D-linemen is too good, you run into The Three Stooges Syndrome, where they all bang their heads together three feet in front of the QB.

    Welcome to LA!!”

    Wait…is that Los Angeles or Louisiana?

  28. Suh is all about money, good proof is that he’s friends with Warren Buffett. Suh would play for a high school team if they offered the most money.

  29. I really believe Suh is looking for the right team that will win the 2018 Super Bowl, because he is closer to retiring than holding a high contract offer. He has the money at his age it about a Super Bowl win for now, he will ride with the Saints it going to be up to the Saints to want him. He knows who stands a better chance of going to the Super Bowl and who has the weapons to do it that is the Saints.
