Ndamukong Suh likely won’t be playing for the Los Angeles Rams next season.

According to a Monday night report from ProFootballTalk, NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport claimed that the superstar defensive tackle “isn’t expected to re-sign” with the Rams. The same report indicated that he would also like to remain out west somewhere.

This sucks if you’re the Rams, but having Aaron Donald still on the roster must ease the pain of likely losing Suh.

That Rams frontline last season was dirty. Suh and Donald might have been the nastiest one-two punch in the entire league. Nobody wanted to block them, and they routinely put the fear of God into quarterbacks. (RELATED: Sean Payton Spent Three Days Eating Ice Cream And Watching Netflix After NFC Championship Game Loss)

The report from Ian Rapoport appeared to be backed up Tuesday by Myles Simmons, who said the Rams GM feels more lucrative deals wait for Suh “elsewhere.”

I’m sure the former Lions and Dolphins star won’t have any trouble getting a new job. Guys with his level of talent don’t exactly grow on trees.

He’s one of the baddest guys in the league, and somebody will write him a check. You can bet on that.
