It didn't take Ndamukong Suh many words to make waves in his first online post as a Philadelphia Eagle. Or any words, actually.
Suh begins his career in Philadelphia with a one-emoji tweet.
Now 35, Suh isn't quite the First-Team Pro Bowler that earned him accolades in the early-to-mid 2010s. But still a physical specimen with elite skill and a mean streak on the gridiron, Ndamukong is the sort of signing that will stoke enthusiasm among Philly fans.
Touting an 8-1 record, tied for the league best, Suh was hardly a necessary signing for an excelling Eagles team. But he'll bring leadership intangibles in addition to on-field contributions. What's more, Howie Roseman and the Eagles appear to have beat out myriad teams that were interested in the 12-season vet.
As of September, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were thought to be open to a Suh reunion. The Cleveland Browns and Las Vegas Raiders were also tied to Suh at various points of the offseason. But, having sat on the sideline until the most opportune situation emerged, Suh now finds himself on a team that's ticketed for a postseason run.
