Dallas Cowboys have interest in signing Ndamukong Suh
Since being released by the Miami Dolphins at the start of the free agency period last week, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been making the rounds with several different teams around the league. He is widely regarded as being the top talent still left available on the open market.
This chatter has picked up over the last few days as he entertained the possibility of joining a few playoff caliber teams. According to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports, the Dallas Cowboys are now believed to have interest in adding the 31-year-old to the mix this offseason.
Update: The #Cowboys have shown interest in Ndamukong Suh, but have yet to organize a visit. Yet another team coveting him. Setting up a visit however, remains paramount to the process, given the emphasis #Suh is putting on culture.

The sudden interest from the Cowboys could be to beef up their defensive line that has finally had a few promising pieces in place. The front office has already secured rising star defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence under the franchise tag for the 2018 season, which could make it appealing for Suh to joining the fray to play alongside him.
However, the realistic possibility of Suh joining Dallas could be impacted by their limited salary cap space with just $7.9 million in financial flexibility remaining at this point in time. The team could make moves to free up more money if needed, but that may require the front office to possibly part ways with some of their talent.
Meanwhile, there are other teams that are already in position to add Suh without having to make moves such as the Los Angeles, Tennessee Titans and even the Seattle Seahawks. This could make financial flexibility a huge issue in their pursuit of him the other teams in on adding arguably one of the best defensive tackles in the league.
Suh has put together an impressive career through his first eight seasons having earned five Pro Bowl selections, four First-Team All-Pro nods, and two Second-Team All-Pro selections. He had experienced a notable production this past season recording 47 total tackles and 4.5 sacks, but it shouldn’t lead to any significant concern about what he can still do at this point in his career.
