Ndamukong Suh didn’t have the year many expected from the former first-rounder when he signed his one-year, $14 million deal with the Los Angeles Rams in 2018, logging just two single-game grades above 80.0 and a 67.2 pass-rush grade on the year. However, the big Nebraska product still contributed positively in run defense and will serve as an upgrade to almost any defensive line in the NFL.

Suh, who celebrated his 32nd birthday in January of this year, likely doesn’t have too many years of high-end production left in the tank, but he surely can step in as a key piece for a competitive defense for the foreseeable future. He won’t draw the price tag he did a year ago, but he’ll get paid a pretty penny to excel in run defense and offer some upside as a pass-rusher in 2019.
