What has been known and obvious since Sunday morning when the Miami Dolphins and the representatives for Ndamukong Suh successfully laid the groundwork to a contract is now a reality: The best and most expensive free agent on the market has joined the Dolphins.
Suh has signed his six-year contract with the Dolphins, according to a league source.
He arrived in South Florida this morning. He arrived at the training facility early in the afternoon. And after getting a tour of the facility and doing the requisite meet-and-greet with the braintrust and coaches, Suh put signature to contract.
The deal details have not been made known to The Miami Herald. But ESPN reported four days ago it was worth $114 million with $60 million in guaranteed money. ProFootballTalk.com reported the $60 million figure is fully guaranteed with $20 million of that being paid out this year.
The fact the $60 million is fully guaranteed means owner Stephen Ross has to set aside the entire sum. Ross, a billionaire and one of the NFL's richest owners, can obviously deal with that money flow issue.
After all, he approved this entire deal from start to finish.
Ndamukong Suh is a Miami Dolphin.
