The Rams will welcome the Buccaneers to Los Angeles this Sunday and that means they’ll also be welcoming defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh back to the stadium he called home last season.

Suh started every game for the Rams during their run to an NFC title and left for Tampa as a free agent, so this will be his first chance to renew acquaintances with his former teammates. Those former teammates will now be tasked with stopping Suh and Rams left tackle Andrew Whitworth explained why that can be difficult.

“Super powerful, takes care of his body,” Whitworth said, via the Los Angeles Times. “That’s kind of always been his MO — he overpowers guys a lot and has always kind of been that guy.”

Suh has five tackles, a tackle for loss and a quarterback hit while playing 83 percent of the snaps through the first three weeks of the season.

  1. I watched a good portion of the Giant-TB game after the NO-Sea game got out of hand. I had no idea Suh was there. Did I just miss anything with him, or was he non-existent? I remember he left in the off season, but this article was the first time I’ve heard him brought up since.

  2. 5 tackles, 1 sack… Suh is not even in the top 50.

    After he made noise to get his big payday… he’s been so average, average average,

    He takes care of his body alright… he plays much weaker and vanilla.

    Suits up, Wrangles with O linemen a bit, cashes checks.

  3. polegojim you literally have no idea what youre talking about. Guess what will happen next year if the Buc’s dont pick up his option? He will get another 8-10 million 1 year deal with an option for another one. I guess you know more than NFL GM’s

  4. Hasn’t done his job?

    Bucs have stuffed the run in 2 out of 3 games (49ers figured out that off-tackle runs and pitches kept the ball away from the middle of the field).

    Guess who plays in the middle of the defense? N. Suh and V. Vea.

    This is like saying guards and centers are nobody’s if there isn’t video of 12 pancake blocks in a game…

  5. Rams are doing just fine with “washed up” Clay Matthews and his 4 sacks so far this season.
