Free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, a former Super Bowl champion, has confirmed having discussions with the Baltimore Ravens on his way to returning to the NFL in a ring-chasing move that could see him joining the Flock in a few days or weeks.
Suh told Sky Sports (where he's working as an analyst covering the NFL in October) that he is considering making a return to the NFL later this season. Suh remains determined to join a competitive team for the latter part of the season.
During an interview with the sports media outlet, Suh said he "has got a couple more weeks" to think about what he will do next, adding "We’ll just wait and see."
The defender revealed that the Ravens "spoke to me last week," and that Baltimore "seems to be interested" in signing the tackle. "You never know. We’ll see when we get back to the States and get settled,” Suh said.
Suh made clear that it will be of the utmost importance to play alongside exceptional players with a chance at winning the Super Bowl, and he made sure to mention Ravens' standout quarterback Lamar Jackson.
A five-time Pro Bowler, Suh has amassed 71.5 sacks and 600 tackles over 13 professional seasons since becoming the no. 2 pick of the 2010 draft, one coincidentally made by the Detroit Lions (which are coming off a horrible loss to the Ravens in Week 7).
Suh was part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers roster that went on to defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV at the end of the 2020 season, just a little over two calendar years ago.
In other words, Suh should be as ready to go as possible and if he ends up signing with Baltimore he would produce instantly.
Suh's decision hinges on finding the right fit and contributing to a team with championship aspirations in what has come to be known as a "ring-chasing" move in all major sports and leagues.
Even then, and if the price is right, the Ravens should not hesitate for a second and sign Suh to a one-year/remainder-of-the-season deal as quickly as possible to bolster (even more) their already-sublime defense.
