The Kansas City Chiefs have experienced a busy free agency so far. Now they should keep it going and bring in Ndamukong Suh for a visit, at the very least.
Some of the top names are off the market in free agency, but Ndamukong Suh is still waiting for a team to sign him. The Kansas City Chiefs should strongly consider at least bringing the guy in for a visit and then perhaps kicking the tires on him.
Suh, a former second overall pick in 2010, has bounced around the league over the years. The Lions drafted him and he also played for the Dolphins and the Rams, where he spent last season. Suh was quieter than usual (at least personality wise) in LA and that has to count for something, right?
Suh might not be the dominant player that he was during his days at Nebraska, but he’s still a very good defensive tackle and stays healthy. In fact, in his nine year career (can’t believe he’s been in the league that long already), Suh has only missed two games. That’s the kind of health the Chiefs need on their defense, after having injury-riddled players like Eric Berry and Justin Houston for a number of years.
Last season saw Suh rack up 59 tackles, 19 quarterback hits, and four and a half sacks. He also had four passes defensed and recovered two fumbles with the Rams.

The Chiefs are rebuilding their defense and while Suh wouldn’t be a mainstay with the unit, bringing him in on a one or two-year deal could be a good decision. He could help mentor the younger players and would be an effective playmaker.
As you can see from Pro Football Focus’ tweet above, Suh is still a very good player with a lot left in the tank. It’s surprising that he hasn’t seen much traction in free agency to this point, but the Chiefs need to consider at least bringing him in for a visit and seeing if it’s at all a fit. He’d be a great addition to a defense that lost Berry, Houston, and Dee Ford in the span of a week.
The Chiefs have made some good moves in free agency, signing Tyrann Mathieu and Alex Okafor to contracts that won’t break the bank. They can’t stop at those two guys, however, and inviting Ndamukong Suh to visit the facilities couldn’t hurt, right?
Bring Suh in and see if there’s any chance of him being a Chief. It could really help the defense in 2019, wouldn’t you agree, Chiefs fans? Or do you think the team should look for help elsewhere?
