The Los Angeles Rams have signed defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. He has received a one-year deal with the team.

He will be paid $14 million this upcoming season.

Suh was released by the Miami Dolphins at the beginning of free agency. The Rams were one of the teams he met with during free agency.

Suh joined the Rams front line that also includes reigning Defensive Player of the Year in Aaron Donald. He’s also the latest addition that the Rams added to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’s unit in Sam Shields, Aqib Talib, and Marcus Peters.

The Rams acquired Talib and Peters in trades with the Denver Broncos and the Kansas City Chiefs, respectively. Los Angeles took a flier on Shields.

Suh, after his release from the Dolphins, visited with the New Orleans Saints and the Tennessee Titans last week. He also visited with the Rams last Tuesday.

He was scheduled to meet with the Oakland Raiders last Wednesday, but that meeting never happened. Despite never meeting with Suh, the New York Jets were the front-runner later on the week.

The Jets also offered Suh a contract, but then rescinded their offer.

The 31-year-old Suh signed a massive deal with the Dolphins in 2015. This past season, he had 27 tackles, 4.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, and two pass deflections.

In three seasons with the Dolphins, he started 48 games. He had 108 tackles, 15.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 13 pass deflections.

Prior to signing with the Dolphins, he spent five-years with the Detroit Lions.
