Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said that he has “no hard feelings” toward the Miami Dolphins following what could be perceived as a negative comment on Instagram about the team’s rush defense.
“I got an opportunity to comment like any other person on Instagram,” Suh said, per ESPN. “Really made an observation any blind man could see.”
Suh’s comment came on a play that saw Carolina Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey bolt for a 71-yard touchdown run in a preseason game against the Dolphins. The play was posted to the NFL’s Instagram account.
“Right up the Gut lol,” the 31-year-old Suh wrote.
Suh spent three seasons with the Dolphins before being released in March, halfway through a six-year, $114 million contract he signed in 2015. He signed a one-year deal worth $14 million with the Rams less than two weeks later.
A five-time Pro Bowl selection, Suh said he has spoke with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross recently.
“It’s a business,” Suh said. “And how I look at it is they had to move on from me and I’m happy where I’m at right now.”
Suh was an All-Pro selection in three of his first five seasons with the Detroit Lions, racking up 36 of his career 51.5 sacks while establishing himself as the best league’s best interior lineman.
Although he started all 16 games in each of his three seasons with the Dolphins, Suh’s impact diminished greatly while new teammate Aaron Donald was establishing himself as the NFL’s best defensive tackle.
Los Angeles, which won the NFC West title last season, has made a series of major offseason acquisitions, including deals to bring in wide receiver Brandin Cooks along with cornerbacks Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib.
The pairing of Donald, the reigning AP Defensive Player of the Year, and Suh has many observers envisioning a dominant front line — provided Suh plays up to his previous level. The 6-foot-4, 307-pound Suh has no doubt that will be the case.
