Free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is being targeted by the Dallas Cowboys to shore up the defensive line. According to NFL Network’s Jane Slater, Suh, 33, has been considered by the Cowboys to boost the “size” of the line.
#Cowboys continuing to look for options to upgrade defensive line per sources informed. DT Dontari Poe, Ndamukong Suh, Damon Harrison and Mike Pennel all options they’re doing their homework on as they look to add more size at DT in new defensive scheme.

A former second-overall pick of the Detroit Lions out of Nebraska in the 2010 NFL Draft, Suh won the Defensive Rookie of the Year with Detroit en route to five Pro Bowl selections. Suh signed a six-year deal as a free agent in March 2015 with the Miami Dolphins after five seasons with the Lions before finding himself on three separate franchises in three seasons most recently.
Suh last played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2019, signing a one-year deal last spring. Appearing in every regular-season game, Suh recorded 22solo tackles, seven tackles for losses, 14 quarterback hits, four fumble recoveries, and two and a half sacks. Prior to that Suh played a single season with the Los Angeles Rams.
Slater also mentions free agent defensive tackles Dontari Poe, Damon Harrison, and Mike Pennel. The Cowboys agreed to a deal with Poe on Monday afternoon after losing Robert Quinn and Maliek Collins in free agency this past week.
The Cowboys still haven’t re-signed free agent franchise quarterback Dak Prescott, who couldn’t agree to a deal that would pay him $33 million per year. Prescott is supposed to be the priority for Dallas, who could delay paying him the big bucks in exchange for franchise tagging the former Offensive Rookie of the Year.
