3. The Long Shot  Jaw Dropping Signing of Ndamukong Suh

This is a pipedream for the Falcons and the least likely of them all. But hear me out. Suh is a year older. Suh is coming off a lackluster regular season, but a very good postseason. That means the Falcons can lowball the veteran defensive lineman with another one year deal with a big, but smart for the team deal. I don’t think this would be a wise choice for the Falcons to make.

There are a lot of needs that can be filled with the money that Suh will be commanding, but it’s okay to dream about a Jarrett-Suh wrecking crew in the middle of the line. Would it work for this team? No, probably not.

But it’s a move that the Falcons can make if they really want to go for it all this season. Suh has shown the ability to turn it on and still play like one of the best defensive linemen in the league.

Putting him beside Jarrett would free him up similarly to his last season with Aaron Donald, to a lesser extent. Suh doesn’t really strike me as the “Brotherhood” kind of guy, but maybe he’s matured with age. I wouldn’t count on that, however. I don’t see Suh buying into the philosophy or the Falcons in general. There are just too many holes on this team. But if Arthur Blank takes Suh to dinner, who knows. Maybe we will see Suh in red and black next season.
