At the NFL owners meetings Tuesday, Rams general director Les Snead explained that re signing the veteran defensive handle is”just about sure to be off the table”
“Based on that from our budgetary constraints in 2013, it probably doesn’t easily fit in his wants,” Snead said.
The Rams signed Suh into a yearlong, $14 million contract last March, and the five-time Pro Bowl selection was considered a one-season rental because the team found that a pub to make a deep playoff series.
Playing with two-time Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, Suh did not create a substantial effect during much of the normal season with 4.5 sacks and four tackles for loss.
Snead noted Suh’s transition out of 3-technique to nose handle because he transferred from acting in 4-3 schemes to defensive coordinator Wade Phillips’ 3-4.
“There was an early-in-the down transition into this position change and I really do think as the season moved on he did improve,” Snead said. “And you believed more of the Ndamukong that maybe you’d gotten to know through time.”
