Chargers Reportedly Preparing To Make A Run At Ndamukong Suh

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, the Chargers are among the teams preparing to make a run at prized free agent DT Ndamukong Suh in the coming days.

In recent days, all the talk has centered around the Dolphins as the team to watch for Suh, but there will definitely be a number of teams looking to get in the mix for his services.

The Raiders, Colts, Jaguars, Titans and Lions have all come up as potential options for Suh. Although, a number of reports have said that state taxes could play a role in Suh’s decision, assuming he’s looking for the biggest offer.

According to recent reports Suh could be in line for a six-year contract worth over $100 million includes more than $60 guaranteed and an annual salary of $17 million.

The fact that there is no state income tax in Florida would mean he would make several million dollars when all is said in done given that there’s a big difference in regards to state income take in California (13.3 percent) and Michigan (4.25 percent).

OverTheCap.com has the Chargers projected to have over $26 million in available cap space, so they could make Suh a competitive offer. However, the Raiders and Jaguars are the teams that could set the bar for his asking price given how much cap room they both have.

Suh, 27, recorded 51 tackles, 8.5 sacks and three pass defenses over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 3 defensive tackle in the league.

We have Suh currently ranked as the No. 1 player in our Top 100 Free Agents List.
