Barring a breakdown in formal contract negotiations, Ndamukong Suh will sign with the Miami Dolphins after the new league year officially begins Tuesday for a deal that will pay him approximately $114 million with $60 million in guaranteed money, league sources told Chris Mortensen of ESPN.
The Dolphins and Suh's agent, Jimmy Sexton, discussed those six-year parameters once the 72-hour window opened Saturday for dialogue between teams and unrestricted free agents, sources confirmed.
While Suh's former team, the Detroit Lions, were among other teams making competitive proposals, the Dolphins' parameters far exceeded the rest of the clubs interested in the defensive tackle.
The official proposal and contract, which would make Suh one of the NFL's highest-paid players, must be negotiated when the market opens at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday.
Based off the parameters, Suh also will get $60 million in the first three years on a contract that is expected to average $19 million over the six years of the deal, sources said.

WOW!!! too much $ imo. He's a top tier DT but 19 million a year is overkill. He won't deliver the the number of big plays like JJ Watt or Reggie White. When Dietrich-Smith played for the PACKERS he was shutting Suh down during the game. It angered Duh & so he stomped Smith's arm after a play. Dietrich-Smith was never considered a top 5 OL man.

This post belongs in the main forum. Suh's future is relevant to GB . Admins should get rid of this forum since no one comments on posts here.
