The amazing season by the Philadelphia Eagles that included winning the Super Bowl with a backup quarterback has left quite the impression on Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
The all-pro is so impressed by the Eagles, that he personally told them that he would play for them for free.
Yes for free, according to Robert Klemko of Sports Illustrated:
“When the team practiced against Miami, Dolphins players took note of how fast Eagles players moved from drill to drill. Lee recalls Ndamukong Suh being so impressed with the team that he approached defensive line coach Chris Wilson with an offer: “Suh told our defensive line coach, ‘The way y’all practice is unbelievable. I don’t care about money at this point—I think I want to play with y’all next year for free,’” Lee says. “Our coach was like, ‘Uhh, can we get that in writing?’” (Suh, through a Dolphins spokesman, denies the incident.)”
CBS Sports has already reported that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is “ready to move on” from Suh, who is coming off a season where he had just 29 tackles despite playing in all 16 games for the sixth straight time.
