The Jets made a late push to sign Suh but pulled their one-year offer after a deadline for an agreement passed without Suh even visiting the team. "There's a reason why he was one of the highest paid defensive tackles, if not the highest paid". He's been named to five Pro Bowls (2010, 2012-2014, 2016) and is a three-time first-team All-Pro (2010, 2013, 2014). Los Angeles finished first in the National Football League in points per game behind quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley, so pushing the defense to the next level could make an already good team even more hard to beat.
Jets CEO Christopher Johnson, speaking to reporters from the NFL Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, said the team has chose to pull its offer to Suh.
The Miami Dolphins released the five-time Pro Bowler earlier this month in a cost-cutting move. "It feels like it's the Rams deal to lose". Now the Rams' high-powered offense, which ranked first past year in averaging 29.9 points per game, could have a defense that matches its explosiveness. Los Angeles already got some help in the secondary this offseason, too, trading for cornerback Marcus Peters, another immensely gifted player whose career has been beset by character concerns.
The staff felt that Suh, 31, could be a valuable addition, a disruptive player who could draw extra blockers. He has played all 16 games in every one of his seasons but 2011, when he played 14. McVay's first Rams team had no significant issues in the locker room, with the young head coach and his veteran defensive coordinator presiding over a roster with solid chemistry.
