Report: Ndamukong Suh, Seahawks have mutual interest
The Seattle Seahawks are in the process of rebuilding much of their once-feared “Legion of Boom” defense, and they are apparently considering signing one player who would not be much younger or cheaper than the ones they have moved on from.
Ndamukong Suh, who was released by the Miami Dolphins this week, told Jordan Schultz of Yahoo Sports that he spoke with Pete Carroll on the phone and there is mutual interest in Suh signing with the Seahawks.
Ndamukong Suh tells me he had a great phone conversation with Pete Carroll last night and that there is tangible interest between both parties. The #Seahawks are very excited about Suh — who has a host of potential suitors — given how dominant and disruptive he is.

Suh turned 31 in January, but he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down. He never missed a game in three seasons with the Dolphins, and we have already heard rumblings that their decision to release him was not strictly football related.
The Seahawks may have a vacancy to fill along their defensive front now that they have traded Michael Bennett, though their motivation for unloading Bennett seems similar to the one the Dolphins had for cutting Suh. That said, Suh is the type of hard-nosed player that has thrived in Carroll’s systems for years. If the money is right, Seattle may pull the trigger.
