Ndamukong Suh has finally found himself a new team after signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Rams. Rams general manager Les Snead expressed excitement with news of Suh's signing.

And it didn't take long for writers and reporters across the sports media landscape to share their feelings about the big move. At least we know Rams defensive coordinator is excited.

With the Suh signing, the Rams now have a pair of defensive tackles that could blot out the Sun.

The 6-foot, 4-inch, 305-pound Suh played with the Miami Dolphins the past three seasons, making 181 tackles and 15.5 sacks in 48 games.

All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh signed a 1-year contract with the club on Monday.

The LA Rams defense may have been athletic to place in the top five in creating turnovers, there was a glaring flaw when it came to team defense. Opponents won't be able to consistently double-team both of them, meaning at least one will be working against a single blocker for extended stretches of games.

The Rams were in the bottom five in nearly all categories on the run defense. Now with Suh added to the defensive line, the Rams can improve on those bad numbers.

It's hard to argue against the idea that the Rams make the most sense for Suh on paper.

Not only would Suh have the chance to contend for a Super Bowl, but he'd likely rack up plenty of stats with opposing offences having their hands full with Donald.

Between 2010 and 2017, Suh compiled 51.5 sacks, second only to Geno Atkins for the most by a defensive tackle, and recorded the highest number of run stuffs by an interior defensive linesman with 55. "In acquiring a trio of potential Hall of Famers this offseason, the Rams have constructed their own 21st century version of the Fearsome Foursome - two bulldozers on the line and two ballhawks roaming the secondary - all captained by one of the best defensive coordinators in National Football League history, Wade Phillips".
