Saints showing interest in Ndamukong Suh, source says, after release from Dolphins

One of the biggest names left on the free agent market is defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Sources on Wednesday said that while Suh has been linked to potentially joining the Patriots, Suh himself is looking for the highest contract he can get.

Suh signed a $60 million, fully guaranteed contract three years ago. His base salaries were $16.9 million, $18.9 million and $18.3 million. He saw just under half that amount, with the Dolphins cutting him to save cap space.

Mathieu started all 16 games for the Cardinals previous year, racking up 78 tackles with two interceptions and a forced fumble.


The Saints appear to be in the mix for defensive tackle Ndamakoung Suh.

Pouncey, who played his first 16-game season since 2012 a year ago, played in and started 93 games since he was drafted in 2011.

Suh began his career with the Lions, racking up 36 sacks in five seasons. But the defensive tackle is still very productive. They would have effectively forced him to take less money or sit out as most teams would have already spent their money in free agency. They just traded Michael Bennett to the Philadelphia Eagles, while Cliff Avril's future is in doubt with a career-threatening neck injury. He's had a storied career of running afoul of the referees and National Football League on-field conduct policy, but also as a dominant interior player who is as adept at stopping the run as he is rushing the passer. If the money is right, he'd be a natural fit for either team.
