One of the largest (physical and impactful) free agents, Ndamukong Suh, is heading from the dismal Detroit Lions to the much better Miami Dolphins.

Suh has agreed to a six year $114 million dollar deal ($19 million a season) with the Miami Dolphins.

The deal includes $60 million dollars of  guaranteed money and would make Suh the second highest paid player in the league.

The main concern (if you’re a Dolphin’s fan) is the litany of fines that the league has levied against Suh for overly physical aggression after the whistle blows on the field.

Suh was nearly suspended for the wild-card game against the Dallas Cowboys for stepping on the injured ankle of Aaron Rodgers in the Week 17 matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Similar instances this year may very well result in suspension sentences that can not be overturned, and having a $19 million dollar player sitting in the press box does not help your team.
