Los Angeles Rams to let DT Ndamukong Suh test free agency

The one-year rental proves to be just that as the Rams will allow Ndamukong Suh to test the free agent market.

Back when the Los Angeles Rams signed DT Ndamukong Suh to a one-year deal, many presumed it was going to be a one-year rental to help the Rams make a Super Bowl push. It turns out that those sentiments are true as the Rams will allow Suh to test the free agent market, per Head Coach Sean McVay:

Suh signed a one-year deal for $14m with the Rams turning down the competition such as the New Orleans Saints. Suh proved to be a worthy addition as he finished the season with 4.5 sacks, four tackles-for-loss, and 19 QB hits. Not only that, but Suh took his game to another level once the 2019 NFL Playoffs kicked off, ensuring he was undoubtedly one of the reasons the defense did a complete 180 in the playoffs.

The Rams currently have just under $25m in cap space and plenty of important players slated to be free agents, so it makes sense why they’ll allow Suh to test the market. The Rams are entitled to receive a compensatory draft pick if Suh walks, though it will depend on the activity of the Rams in free agency and the contract Suh receives.
