Confidants of owner Stephen Ross told me during the season that the owner was ready to move on from defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, set to count a staggering $26 million against the cap.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Robert Klemko, Suh told Eagles defensive line coach Chris Wilson he’s willing to take a huge discount to play for the Eagles next season back when the team held joint practices in August.
“When the team practiced against Miami, Dolphins players took note of how fast Eagles players moved from drill to drill,” Klemko wrote. “Lee recalls Ndamukong Suh being so impressed with the team that he approached defensive line coach Chris Wilson with an offer: ‘Suh told our defensive line coach, ‘The way y’all practice is unbelievable. I don’t care about money at this point—I think I want to play with y’all next year for free.’ Our coach was like, ‘Uhh, can we get that in writing?'”
Suh quickly denied the conversation ever happened through a Dolphins spokesperson but it would be intriguing to see him play with the Eagles next season.
