The Cleveland Browns need more depth on the defensive line and they could be looking to veteran defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to find that
With training camp just around the corner, the Cleveland Browns have the majority of the players signed they think can make their 53-man roster. But that doesn’t mean they’re done looking.
Suh was originally the second overall pick out of Nebraska in 2010 — taken by the Detroit Lions. He played there for five seasons and had 238 tackles and 36 sacks in that span.
Once he hit the open market in the 2015 season, Suh cashed in as he signed a six-year contract worth $114 million. He played only half of that contract as he was released following the 2017 season.
From there, he landed with the Los Angeles Rams for one season and played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers the past three campaigns — earning a Super Bowl ring in the process.
Despite being 34-years of age, Suh remained an effective player in 2021 for Tampa Bay. He finished with 27 tackles and six sacks, registering 12 total in the past two seasons.
In Cleveland, he would split time with Taven Bryan, Perrion Winfrey, Jordan Elliott, and Tommy Togiaia. Built like a nose tackle at 313-pounds, Suh is still more of a 3-tech who offers more in the pass-rushing department.
He could be an affordable signing given his age but even if he was added, Cleveland should still be in the market for a run-stuffing tackle.
