Veteran defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh waited to pick his next team. On Thursday, he did.

Here’s a look at the details of the one-year deal with the Eagles that covers the balance of the season.

1. Signing bonus: $250,000.

2. Base salary: $750,000 for eight weeks, fully guaranteed.

3. Per-game roster bonus: $31,250 per game (total of $250,000).

4. Per-game playing-time incentive: $62,500 for each regular-season game with more than 30 percent of the snaps (total of $500,000).

5. Per-game playing-time incentive: $31,250 for each regular-season game with more than 35 percent of the snaps (total of $250,000).

He gets another $125,000 for each playoff win, if he participates in 30 percent or more of the regular-season snaps. If he doesn’t participate in 30 percent or more of the regular-season snaps, he gets $125,000 for each postseason win in which he participates in 30 percent of more of that game’s snaps.

It’s a deal with a base value of $1.25 million, with a maximum payout of $2.5 million.

On one hand, Suh was able to wait for the true contenders to emerge. On the other hand, he could have made a lot more by, for example, returning to the Buccaneers.

  1. The bad thing about Philly are the fans…and the people in Philly period…No brotherly love there,hateful city!

    At least tell the full facts not just what helps you slant the view. He also wouldve had to do much much more work for that extra money. The season is already 10 weeks past plus the preseason so yes he wouldve made more money but he also wouldve worked at the very least 14 weeks longer.

  3. That is the smart thing but should have went to a afc contender. Nfc is a step down this year.

    Vikes and Philly are the cream of the crop yet flawed. Vikes play everyone close and don’t blow out anyone. The saints with no wrs and no Alvin gave them a real game. Everyone gives them a close game. Only two games won by more than a score.

    Philly can’t get even a bit behind because they are not built for it. Yes Philly needed him because they can’t stop the run they are bad at it. Just imagine how bad they would be if they were in close games

  4. The hate is very real. Feels good to see so many similarities to 17. Suh chose the eagles and when a vet of 10 plus years waits half the year to sign to chase a ring, it’s not by accident. It’s because he sees them as the most viable title contender in the nfl. He’s not washed up, desperate or broke. He’s looking for a ring. Read up on him and look at last years stats. There’s a reason teams were looking to sign him during the off-season. Happy he’s in Philly. Keep the hate train rolling. We love it

  5. Love the hate the Birds are getting, feels like 2017 all over again. Hungry dogs run faster!!!

    GO BIRDS!!!!!!!!!

  6. Suh wants another SB ring, he thinks he can get it with the Eagles. And it makes all the sense in the World. Suh is a dominant force at the DT position and with the back end of the Eagles’ defense playing at a high level stopping the run game of the opposing offense and putting pressure up the in the QB’s will make the back end even better. Because right now the only way to stop the Eagles is to keep the offense on the bench.
