The Vikings would not give up in pursuit of Ndamukong Suh

A team would be excluded from the Ndamukong Suh draw, but that team is not the Minnesota Vikings.

According to Cleveland Browns reporter Brad Stainbrook, the Browns remained ‘out of line’ to land the former five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle, but the Vikings and Las Vegas Raiders are still having conversations in an effort to secure his services .

According to the report, the hope is that Suh will finally make a decision before the start of training camp.

“The Browns remain irrelevant for DT Ndamukong Suh,” Stainbrook posted on Twitter. “The Raiders and Vikings have had conversations, and Suh will hopefully be looking to sign somewhere before camp opens.”

Landing another disruptive defensive playmaker this late in the game would be big for the Vikings. Even at 35, Suh has shown he still has a tendency to force his way into the offensive backfield and blast plays.

He just finished his second consecutive six-sack season with a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team he helped win Super Bowl LV with in 2021. But his greatest asset is his elite run-stopping abilities.

The Vikings’ defensive front was a doormat for opponents last season, with the unit allowing 130.7 rushing yards per game on average. It was just too easy to move the ball up and down the pitch against them.

But the addition of Suh, along with Harrison Phillips and Dalvin Tomlinson, could finally turn things around for the better. It could end the doormat reference by reinserting a little respect – and maybe even a little fear – into the Vikings defense.
