With the news surrounding the Los Angeles Rams being the front-runner to land Ndamukong Suh, this is a great sign for Sean McVay and company.
At some point this week, the Los Angeles Rams would love nothing more than to see a decision by Ndamukong Suh over his plans for the 2018 season to have a better standing of where they stand. But all things considered, the Rams have to love their chances of landing Suh when compared to the other teams expressing interest in the defensive superstar, especially since it would take their Super Bowl odds to a whole new level.
As much of a headache as Suh has been at times throughout his career with some of his dirty actions, at the end of the day, he can be an absolute nightmare for opponents to keep in check. In fact, the thought of Suh joining a defensive line that already consists of one of the league’s most dominant players in Aaron Donald is absolutely terrifying to think about since it would provide Los Angeles with a huge advantage.
With that being said, the Rams received some surprising news last week when the New York Jets stepped forward with the largest offer, although the deal was reportedly rescinded as of Sunday night. And while this news alone obviously helps Los Angeles in a big way, what’s even more exciting is hearing how the team appears to be the favorite at the moment to land Suh over the Tennessee Titans and New Orleans Saints.
Nothing against the Titans or Saints, but when comparing all three teams when it comes to having the best chance of winning the Super Bowl, the Rams sit on top of that list when looking at all of the big moves made so far in the offseason to make them stronger contenders. Add Suh into the mix, and those chances for Los Angeles would easily hit a whole new level since, as mentioned before, the thought of him playing alongside Donald seems insane to think about when it comes to the advantage the unit would have over opponents.
The Rams and their fans have patiently been waiting to hear Suh’s decision since they still have plenty of work to get done from now until the end of April when the NFL Draft gets underway. But after hearing the news that Los Angeles appears to be the team to beat to land Suh, this long wait could be well worth it.
