Ndamukong Suh will be the biggest and best free agent available next week when the NFL's free agency period begins.
There are many different suitors for Suh at this stage with the Indianapolis Colts, New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins and the Oakland Raiders all reported to be interested in the league's top defensive tackle.
But it's only one of those teams, the Miami Dolphins, that seem the most confident and willing to pay Ndamukong Suh the absolute top dollar that he wants in his bid to become the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.
Dolphins are confident
Detroit Lions are also keen to retain Suh and match any offers that he gets from around the league, but that will be pretty difficult after the latest revelation that was reported by Miami Herald's Armando Salguero today.
Salguero wrote, per multiple sources, today that Miami are "definitely in the Suh chase."
And furthermore, the reporter revealed that he's been told that the "Dolphins are confident they're going to put a great offer on the table for Suh. They are confident they can get him."
Miami need to be careful
Signing Ndamukong Suh would be huge for the Miami Dolphins. There is no denying that he would transform their defense into one of the NFL's best.
But what would they be giving up in terms of cap space? Signing Suh would mean Miami Dolphins outlaying a huge contract for the star defensive tackle to make him the highest-paid defensive player in the league.
Earmarking such a huge proportion of their cap to one player would mean they wouldn't be able to find ideal replacements for receivers Brian Hartline and Mike Wallace ahead of next season, something they desperately need to do.
