Report: Ndamukong Suh Wants To Play For Seahawks, Raiders Could “Overbid” For Him

According to Jason Cole of the Bleacher Report, free agent DT Ndamukong Suh would like to play for the Seattle Seahawks.

Cole mentions that signing with Seattle would Suh’s “No. 1 choice,” as he’s from the west coast and are a competitive team.

However, Cole adds that Suh signing with the Seahawks is a “pipe dream” at this point given that they will have to address other players like QB Russell Wilson in the coming months.

Suh is reportedly willing to consider signing with a west coast team, but his preference would be to play for a contender.

While the Raiders and Jaguars don’t fall into the category of being a contender next year, they are still expected to be “serious contenders” when it comes to signing Suh.

Cole points to the fact that they both have plenty of cap space to work with this offseason and they’ll be required to spend a large portion of this money.

With the Raiders being on the west coast and in the market for major upgrades, Cole believes they could overbid for a player of Suh’s caliber.

It’s hard to know what to believe right now regarding Suh outside of the fact that he’ll end up being of the highest paid defensive players in the league.

Recent reports have indicated that the Lions could prove to be the best option for Suh in the end, and the team president Tom Lewand said last week that he believes there is a “very, very good chance” they will be able to get a long-term contract in place with Suh.

He wants to have success in the NFL, obviously, but he wants to do that with us,” Lewand said, via the Detroit Free Press. “And I think that — I think there’s a very, very good chance that we can get something done with him in the next few weeks.

The Lions are unlikely to franchise Suh given that it would cost them $26.87 million, so we’ll have to see if negotiations pick up in the coming weeks.

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 ranked as the No. 2 player in our Top 50 – 2015 Free Agents List.

Jim, look at the facts, the Seahawks fought thru adversity all season…fighting to win until the last whistle. In the superb owl they were playing with injuries that need sursurgery or missing guys at starting de, both dt, 3rd cb, 1st cb, both safeties, big play speed wr/kr, #1,3,4 te, fb and #4,5,6 DE yet they were still within 1/2 a yard of going back to back Champs. Wilson had either the top or in top 5 of late game come backs. They lost a lot of players to i.r. this season. They’re down their 2 best d.t., several backup… Read more »

He’s a perfect fit for this bunch of undisciplined loudmouth, thug punks who fold up like a cheap suit once adversity hits.
