Eagles agree to deal with Ndamukong Suh

NFL: JAN 23 NFC Divisional Round - Rams at Buccaneers

The Eagles’ talks with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh went well.

According to multiple reports, the NFC East leaders have agreed to terms with Suh on a one-year deal. A report on Thursday revealed that the team has been in talks with the veteran about joining their defensive line.

Suh spent the last three seasons with Tampa and helped the team win Super Bowl LV after the 2020 season. The Eagles have eyes on ending their season the same way and they obviously believe Suh can help them reach that goal.

The move comes a day after the Eagles signed Linval Joseph, so they’ve doubled down on veteran additions to the interior while rookie Jordan Davis is on the injured reserve list. Fletcher Cox is also part of the mix at defensive tackle, so the Eagles will be very deep once everyone is healthy and settled with the team.

  1. This guy is 35, almost 36 years old, and numerous teams passed on him for a reason. He’s done like we saw last year.

    They’ll be lucky if one of the tubbies holds up.

  2. yeah, like with Mahomes. If you can win big before having to pay the QB, do it. Makes paying them a smidge easier, if they’ve had success at the highest level and not just regular season.

  3. Jeff Lurie and team making moves to improve their team while Bob Kraft watches and wonders why he is paying so much for Jonnu Smith, Nelson Agholor and Kendrick Borne

  4. They know they will have to stop the 49ers run game in the playoffs. Good pick up by the Eagles.

  5. just snatched the top available DTs from the madden free agency drop down. hope it works out

  6. This has “we need to win now before we have to pay Hurts” written all over it

    Really?

    I think it speaks more to the roster they currently have, and filling holes that have been created by injury. They are 8-1 and it’s not like they’re saying eff those draft picks like the Rams. Howie knows this is a Championship roster and is doing everything in his power to keep it that way

  7. Washington exposed their D line.. now they are signing washed up players. Nothing to see here.

  8. I guess the outlook for the run defense was worse than appears. Interested to see what they do when Jordan Davis and Tuipolotu come off IR. Super bowl or bust…FLY EAGLES FLY!!!!

  9. I doubt this move will have any tangible effect on the run defense, but it’s better than doing nothing.

  10. He can definitely help them, especially with the run game, when Hicks went down I hoped for my bucs to bring him again.

  11. Breaking news……eagles just signed albert Haynesworth……this completes the hat trick for washed up D line man. These guys aren’t sitting at home in week 11 for no reason.

  12. Lol, how many snaps do you think Suh is going to give you a game 10? Dude is 36yo over 300lbs and has been sitting on the couch for the last 4 months. I’d run right at him the first 5 or 6 snaps he plays to remind him why he hasn’t played at all this season.

    Washington torched them with the run this is to shore up their run defense.

    152 yards on 49 carries isn’t torched. The biggest issue in that game were the fumbles on offence.

  14. Call him washed up if you like, but I think this is a smarter pickup than, say, an OBJ. The trenches are where the game gets decided, and this will make sure than no team can run over or run away from them.

    This team hasn’t really been tested this season, and a veteran right in the middle of things is a good way to help keep the wheels falling off when they do get tested.

  15. Can suh help Jalen read a def…….starting to get confused again……def catching up….and now cannot stop the run…..uh oh eagle fan.

    Well, considering they just added two defensive tackles to IR in the last couple weeks, it’s only fitting they bring in two more, right?? Did you think they’d sign wrs to replace them??

  17. They know the have the real Penn State RB wearing #28 coming up, twice. He gonna run right thru that shrimp basket.

  18. I’d run right at him the first 5 or 6 snaps he plays to remind him why he hasn’t played at all this season.
    ——

    If you ran at him once you would be in concussion protocol immediately.

  19. It’s a good deal if he’s got a year left with anything. He brings a nastiness and a snarl to that d line.

    #28? Did Curt Warner come out of retirement???

  21. When you lose to the Commanders everybody panics from firing coaches to buying players to fix the holes 😀

  22. I’ve usually tried to limit comments on players to on the field. Except for the tipping at restaurants. But now I find myself conflicted, because I always thought NS was a bit nasty, during and after the play. Not sure I like this move because of that reason. If he is playing and does his job well, without the nasty after the play behavior, I’m all for it, but, as they say in the stock marker, past performance is no indication of how this one will behave. NS, please keep it clean, we don’t need needless penalties (as we from philly have seen over the years, it loses games).
    signed
    (now) concerned from philly

    ……………………. He’s only gotta play a half a year , he’s well rested already .

  24. great signing, and they will replace him next year with the best player in the draft, Jalen Carter. Thank you New Orleans LOL

    -—————————————————————————————————————

    2217 yards, 14 TDs, 3 interceptions and a 106.4 passer rating. Yup needs help reading defenses. You can add in the 7 rushing TDs and 354 rushing yards if you’d like

    Bad game for sure, but not worried.

  26. Pretty unlikely Suh is in football shape coming in off the sofa circuit this late in the season.

  27. Bucs didn’t re-sign him (as a starter, probably would have taken him as a backup at a lower price) because he was getting beat on outside runs, and all the teams had picked up on that by the end of the season

  28. “This has “we need to win now before we have to pay Hurts” written all over it”

    ..

    And if it worked who would be complaining? There’s not a lot of chances teams get to go all in. Not a Philly fan. Makes legit sense

  29. So. Many. Snowflakes.

    It’s a great move by Howie. Zero risk, high reward. Suh got to pick his team and he did.

  30. Solid take. That’s not the first thing that crossed my mind but you’re spot on. Load up while we can type of thing.

  31. Howie has always kinda been like the Rams GM, picking up every shiny penny he sees on the street. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Seems to be working this year, although I doubt two old DTs will turn the tide much.

  32. just snatched the top available DTs from the madden free agency drop down. hope it works out

    ——————–

    If he was still so good some team would have signed him long before this.

  33. Suh made his payday in Miami after leaving Detroit and he played about like most folks expected – not worthy of that contract. He was also an underachiever with the Rams & finally showed a spark in Tampa & got his Super Bowl ring. So good luck with him in Philadelphia because unless your using him as a plug in that DL don’t expect much else from him because a lot of teams in desperate need of DL help passed on him for a reason.

  34. Suh, I’m pleading with you to pretty please not stomp on my cuticles when we play the Eagles. I don’t want any more owies.

  35. Howie does this a lot these moves are smoke screens if he could draft well he wouldn’t have to do this, then the morons on Philly sports radio will talk about how amazing he is.

    If he had drafted Jefferson he still should of drafted Smith then he would have a better wr than Brown here don’t get me wrong I love brown but everyone saw that Jefferson is by far the best WR in the game last Sunday.

    Then he could of drafted in that spot he traded and gotten a top 15 pass rusher. That’s all this is a smoke screen to cover up how bad he drafts they got what 5 or 6 new guys from FA and trades on the defense this year and if anyone thinks they are keeping white or Bradbury after this year they are kidding themselves then he will try to convince us some terrible 6th round pick is just as good as Bradbury same with Gardner Johnson he should be resigning that guy already but nope he is gonna let him walk.

    He isn’t as good a GM as people think I don’t know why people don’t see this he is a terrible drafter always has been and he holds on to guys he drafted waaaaayyyy tooooo looonnngggg cough cough Fletcher Cox cough cough Jason Peters cough cough and I love him but BG too.

    This isn’t gonna work out getting rid of Ertz had to be done can’t have that much $$ tied up in TE but to have 2 projects behind Goddard and no veteran back up was another dumb move.

    Eagles have made the playoffs 5 of the last 6 years. This year will be 6 of 7. That includes a super bowl win. Dude is a top 5 GM in the league. The record speaks for itself.

  37. We would have loved to have Suh back in Tampa. He was a leader in the locker room and plugged the middle of our line. Smart signing by a Philly. Suh will be fresh.

    In 12 seasons he has only missed two games and that was because he had to sit while appealing a disciplinary ruling. He is durable. He also had six sacks in each of his last two seasons. Teams passed on him due to his $9 million asking price and being in his mid 30s. The top DT in this year’s draft was Jordan Davis. He was taken in the 1st round pick 13 by the Eagles. He had 15 tackles and zero sacks through 8 games before being placed on IR. I’d take Suh as a replacement.

  39. Sheesh the Eagles lost one game. I guess that gives the majority of you haters something to talk about. The Eagles are 8-1 that means they smacked 8 teams to find out that their defense was lagging.. Now Suh coming and now he a couch potato. He a rotational player we will get the rest of his greatness out of him. Jealous much?????

    The Eagles look like a one and done team in the playoffs.

    I will bet you $1000 right now

  41. The Eagles look like a one and done team in the playoffs.

    Says a guy rooting for a team that won’t make the playoffs

  42. We’ll see how ol’ Linval and Suh hold up when teams are running on them late into the 4th…same for Cox at this point…but if they can be used rotationally in the playoffs, all healthy with Davis back in the rotation, that could be scary…just feels like a big if.
