Ndamukong Suh likely not returning to the L.A. Rams

The Los Angeles Rams are coming off their first Super Bowl appearance in well over a decade.

This has seen them head into the offseason with plenty of crucial decisions to make on the open market, with key players becoming free agents. One of which is former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who general manager Les Snead has voiced that the team is unlikely to bring him back into the mix, according to Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.

“Based on the fact that from our budgetary constraints this year, it probably doesn’t fit in his desires,” Snead said.

The Rams have been quite active in free agency has brought in a few new players to the mix in safety Eric Weddle, outside linebacker Clay Matthews, and quarterback Blake Bortles along with re-signing outside linebacker Dante Fowler.

This has put the Rams in a bit of a tight situation in terms of their salary cap situation. Meanwhile, Suh is coming off his lone season with the team after inking a one-year, $14 million deal in free agency last offseason.

There hasn’t been much activity in terms of where he will land next, but he’s expected to be well out of the zone that the Rams will be able to offer. In his one season with Los Angeles, Suh had 4.5 sacks with 59 total tackles, two fumble recoveries, and four pass deflections while playing in all 16 regular-season games. In three playoff games, he had registered 10 total tackles along with 1.5 sacks.
