Ndamukong Suh isn’t expected to re-sign with the Rams, but he wants to stay on the West Coast, Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports.

That would mean Suh going to San Francisco, Seattle or the Chargers.

He is a native of Portland, so it is not surprising Suh would have a desire to stay out West. The question is: Do any of the teams on the West Coast have an interest in meeting his contract demands?

Suh spent one season with the Rams after five in Detroit and three in Miami. He started all 16 games last season and made 59 tackles and 4.5 sacks.

He made 10 tackles, 1.5 sacks and five quarterback hits in three postseason games, reminding everyone how dominant he can be.

  1. Warning to whichever team signs Suh, you better hope that your team makes the playoffs. Because that was the only time he showed up for the Rams

  2. I’d like to see him go to the Chargers, but I think they’d be silly to pay anything like what he got from the Rams last season. I’ve always liked him and liked that he plays old school football similar to the 1970s. But he’s not the run stopper he was his rookie season and the Rams had issues defending the run.

    Then again, he didn’t have much help from the LB corps behind them. That’s someplace where the Rams need to seriously upgrade.

  3. To the guy who said he did nothing all season isn’t looking at the full picture, Aaron Donald is probably the best in the game, almost broke the single season sack record, but Suh was the one swallowing up offensive lineman to allow Donald to wreak havoc. Playing d tackle in this fashion is very inglorious, he still managed to rack up 4.5 sacks during the regular season. I’m sure the Rams and Aaron Donald would love to keep him around but can’t invest that much money at the position because Suh’s production warrants top tier dt money.

  4. He played extremely well just at the end of season and in post season. Knowing he was hitting the open market, he demonstrated he can still play at elite level.

    Would love to hear what teams his agent has been in contact with today.

  5. With the money he’s made in his career and his affiliation with Buffett and Steve Ross, I thought he could just buy the west coast. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him as a team owner in the future.

  6. I am from Portland, and a life-long 12. I am well known for my Homerism. Suh is the dirtiest player in the league for every year since he entered it. I don’t want to see him in Seahawks colors.

  7. With Reed next him and Wagner behind him, I wouldn’t worry about his motor in Seattle. Seattle (as omeimontis will tell you ad nauseam) is frugal though. I don’t expect them to make a big splash with any big name players. They’ll wait and bargain hunt through the second wave of free agency.
