The Dolphins officially have their man.
After what felt like a wait of a lot longer than a few days, the Dolphins announced Wednesday that they have signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh by sending out a snapshot of Suh signing a contract while flanked by family, Miami owner Stephen Ross and others in a group that doesn’t include coach Joe Philbin.
The deal, a six-year, $114 million pact that includes $60 million guaranteed in the first three years, gives the Dolphins one of this year’s biggest, if not the biggest, prizes in free agency and makes Suh the highest-paid defensive player in the league.
It has also reportedly made the Dolphins nervous about an inquiry from the league because details of the deal leaked before teams and players were sanctioned to agree to deals, but the payoff should be worth it for Miami’s defense. Suh gives them a disruptive force in the middle of the line who should team with ends Cameron Wake and Olivier Vernon to make life very difficult for opposing offensive lines.
