Ndamukong Suh: I’m ready to prove my worth with Rams; Talks playing alongside Aaron Donald

THOUSAND OAKS — What impressed second-year Rams coach Sean McVay the most when he met free-agent Ndamukong Suh?

His career starts.

In 126 games played in Suh’s soon-to-be 9-year NFL career, the veteran defensive tackle has started all 126.

“Being able to add a player of his caliber is something we feel really good about,” McVay said on Friday. “He’s the epitome of durability, over 50-career sacks.”

Suh joins an already-talented defensive line featuring 2017 Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers.

And the 6-foot-4, 305-pound veteran is ready to put in work.

“We’re in pretty good shape on paper, but we have a lot of things to improve on, really myself I always play with a chip on a shoulder and that’s kinda my focus is to come in here and put in a lot of work and make sure I prove my worth,” said Suh on Friday during his introductory press conference.

Suh, the second overall pick in the 2010 draft, spent four seasons in Detroit before wrapping up a three-year stint in Miami. He’s posted 419 tackles, 51.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.

On Thursday, the Rams introduced their other new player, WR Brandin Cooks, who comes over from New England.
