Ndamukong Suh

House Full of Spears is still a free agent! I would love it if Lou Anarumo brought him to Cincinnati even for a brief workout. I’m thinking he would fit in nicely with Geno Atkins et al in a Mike Zimmer-ish defensive line rotation. Remember how the Bengals used to bring in fresh defensive linemen during the game? That was a great idea then and it’s a great idea now.

I didn't realize it until I just looked it up, but Suh has never missed a game in his nine year career. He's also always had at least 4.0 sacks every season. Been named First Team All-Pro three times.

I don't think the Bengals would be willing to spend good money on him nor do I think he would come in just to be part of a rotation, but I'd be up for adding him. He'd improve the pass rush for sure, plus Taylor has some familiarity with him from last year in LA and 2015 MIA.
I love mock drafts!

Suh seemed to be up and down when it came to giving it his all last season. He was very underwhelming, then looked like a beast come playoff time. I'm not sure a team like the Bengals is a fit for an attitude like his. If he goes anywhere, it will be as a hired gun on a team that will contend, not a cornerstone of a rebuild.

He's a smart guy that's made a shitload of money and doesn't have to play football if he doesn't want to. Not really a Bengals kind of aging FA.

Well, from what you said, it makes it seem like he's aging a little and doesn't go full out the whole time, which makes him a perfect rotation guy..... But, I suspect he is too expensive....

He just came off a 1-year, $14 mill contract, so I suspect he's probably not willing to settle for anything less than $10 mill a year. There's no way Mike Brown would pay that much for a player at this point. That would greatly eat into the extension money.

Very low effort at times. Not a good locker room guy with a new coaching staff stressing qualities he severely lacks. Pass.

So how about McCoy?

He's very well liked and a consummate professional.
I'm just gonna go find a cash machine.

It's astounding that the Colts have turned around again and still have $57 mill cap space remaining.
The key for them is they don't have a lot of expensive contracts on bad or underperforming players.
Their OL is super cheap too. They have Castonzo for $11 mill but the rest of the OL are either on rookie contracts (Nelson, Kelly, Smith) or cheap (Glowinski - $3 mill).
Only one DB makes $5+ mill a year (Desir).
Their highest-paid RB is making $1.2 mill.
They are actually making good bargain FA contracts.
