The Los Angeles Rams, who already have the highest-scoring offense in the National Football League, added former Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to an already impressive line that includes Aaron Donald.
There had been at least some indications that Suh was leaning towards either the Titans or the Rams. Suh was reportedly very intrigued by the idea of teaming up with Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers while playing for DC Wade Phillips.

In February, Snead traded for cornerback Marcus Peters.

That movie also didn't open spectacularly ($37.2 million), and by the end of its run only pulled in a little over $100 million. The panned " Pacific Rim " sequel punched its way to the top with a so-so debut, while every other wide release struggled.
The Pro Bowl defensive tackle and former No. 2 overall pick of the Lions is joining the Rams on a one-year, $14 million contract, ESPN reported. "There's a reason why he was one of the highest paid defensive tackles, if not the highest paid". The Rams were the final stop on Suh's free-agent tour. The Saints did have an improved defense previous year, 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.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Rams are the front-runner to land the 31-year-old star defensive tackle, who was cut by the Miami Dolphins at the start of free agency. He made an immediate impact in Detroit, recording 10.0 sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovered for a touchdown, an interception, and three passes defensed in his rookie year en route to being named 2010 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Ever since being released by the Dolphins nearly two weeks ago, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been visiting with a number of teams trying to figure out what's the best fit for him. But controversy has followed him throughout his career, as he has been fined numerous times over player-safety violation and suspended once for two games.
