Ndamukong Suh intrigued about playing with Aaron Donald, Michael Brockers in L.A.
In the days that have followed his release from the Miami Dolphins, All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has received plenty of interest around the NFL in his services. He is the top available talent left on the board in free agency that could be a cornerstone piece for any franchise that adds him.
Among those teams that have already expressed their interest in him has been the Los Angeles Rams, who are set to hold a visit and dinner with him on Tuesday. According to Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports, the 31-year-old appears to be intrigued by the idea of potentially playing alongside fellow defensive tackles Aaron Donald and Micheal Brockers on the defensive line.
#Suh has told me he's intrigued by playing on the same line as Donald/Brockers. Re Wade Phillips and his 3-4 defense: It has similar gap scheme as a 4-3. Suh is versatile and football savvy enough not to be confined to a super specific role. The #Rams understand this as well.

Although the Rams are running a 3-4 defense under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, there is still plenty of similarities to what he could do on the defensive line. He is a versatile player has shown the ability to apply pressure like a defensive end while remaining a stout factor against the run up the middle at defensive tackle.
If he were to join the Rams, it would give the team arguably the best 1-2 punch at defensive tackle with Suh and the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year in Donald. On top of that, Brocker has developed into a highly dependable factor throughout his first six years while already forging a strong tandem alongside the four-time Pro Bowler in Los Angeles.
The Rams have been a highly active team this offseason adding pieces to their defense with the addition of two All-Pro cornerbacks in Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib along with Sam Shields to their secondary. These moves have only further boasted the potential that the Rams have on that side of the ball to be one of the top defensive units in the league next season.
All of this along with being able to play under Phillips, who has garnered much respect around the league as a defensive coordinator, it could simply put Los Angeles in the running as a serious suitor to land Suh.
