Cleveland Browns Free Agent to Sign No. 2 – Ndamukong Suh, Defensive Tackle
A move I have been talking about for the Cleveland Browns in the last few weeks that is starting to get traction is the addition of defensive tackle, Ndamukong Suh. This is a guy who was the former No. 2 overall pick, but it was way back in 2010.
Suh has been extremely productive, even in his last three seasons with Tampa Bay. He has 14.5 sacks, 112 tackles, and two defensive touchdowns in the last three seasons. What’s even more important for me, he has missed two starts in his entire career. So not only is he a good player on the field, but his availability is also unreal.
There are certainly some question marks that come along with Suh. He’s a fierce competitor and has a history of dirty plays and personal foul penalties that can be demoralizing for a team. A team must be careful to not accumulate too many of these guys on one roster, but I think the Browns locker room can absorb it at the moment.
If Suh isn’t looking for a huge deal and is willing to sign a one-year agreement, he can solve a lot of problems on the interior line for the Browns. Not only is he a dominant run stuffer, but he can also collapse the pocket and rush the passer.
The Browns currently have five guys (not including Suh) who could see snaps in 2022, but unfortunately, none of them have really proven anything yet. The only downside of this signing would be it may require moving on from a guy like Sheldon Day, Jordan Elliott, or Tommy Togiai who have all showed promise at times.
