Ndamukong Suh's 'bout to get PAID. According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, the NFL's most coveted free agent has negotiated a $114 million contract with the Miami Dolphins, which includes $60 million in guaranteed money.
Here's Mort's report on the deal:
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 ESPN.
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.
The deal beats J.J. Watt's reportedly $100 million contract signed in 2014, which at the time made him the highest paid defensive player in league history. (Though with Watt being a known fabricator, we wouldn't be surprised if the actual figure was nothing like he claimed.) In any case, Suh just came up.
