Rams are early Super Bowl favorites after signing Ndamukong Suh

The Rams announced on Monday that they have signed Suh to a one-year deal.

Suh likely could have made more money with the Titans or Jets, but the Rams are widely considered a team on the rise - and Suh has never won a playoff game despite strong individual performances in each of his three postseason appearances.

NFL Network reported a great visit with the Rams was the reason Suh ran a reverse on the Raiders.

The three-time first-team All-Pro is only set to play in Los Angeles for 2018, as the Rams are operating in a window before their rookie contracts expand.

Speaking to the Around the NFL Podcast on Monday before the news broke, Snead explained how defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and his staff detailed to Suh how they would utilize him in every situation in Phillips' 3-4 defense.

In Los Angeles, Suh will pair with fifth-year player Aaron Donald, who brought down quarterbacks 11 times in two of his past three seasons and has 39 career sacks. The Jets pulled their offer, which reportedly was the largest offer he had received. Suh not going to the Jets is good news for the Dolphins who would have had to play him twice each season.

The Rams have been aggressive this offseason, acquiring Peters and Talib via trade, tagging Joyner and now signing Suh.

Todd Bowles, who told Suh that he had plans for him in their scheme, might be disappointed that a deal couldn't be made but again, it would have gone against the very culture he's trying to establish in the locker room. He became the highest-paid defensive player in National Football League history at the time of his six-year, $114 million free-agent deal with the Dolphins. The Saints did have an improved defense a year ago, but Suh is a Top 5 defensive lineman, and to have a player like that hitting the free market, the team has to look at that.

Suh was released March 14 by the Dolphins. The five-time Pro Bowler had been one of Miami's key defensive players, but failed to make the same impact he did in his five years with the Lions.
