Report: DT Suh to visit Raiders next

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will take a fourth free-agent visit on Wednesday, according to an ESPN report, this time with the Oakland Raiders.

Suh tweeted a video Tuesday of himself boarding a private jet, with the hashtag “WheelsUp” and Notorious B.I.G.’s “Going Back to Cali” playing in the background:

The Raiders have been the league’s most active team in free agency, with a total of 14 new arrivals and two re-signings in a week’s time.

Suh has been busy as well. Since being released on Wednesday by the Miami Dolphins, he has visited the New Orleans Saints, the Tennessee Titans and the Los Angeles Rams. An NFL Network report last week suggested Suh planned to meet with several teams and take his time before deciding where he would play next.

The 31-year-old’s release in Miami came three years after he signed what was then the most lucrative contract ever given to a defensive player, a six-year deal worth $114 million with $60 million guaranteed. Suh agreed to that contract during the negotiation period prior to the official opening of free agency in March 2015, before he could visit with any teams.

The Raiders re-signed defensive tackle Justin Ellis last week, but defensive end Denico Autry — who often lined up at tackle on passing downs — departed for the Indianapolis Colts in free agency.

Oakland hasn’t had a defensive tackle collect more than four sacks in a season since Tommy Kelly had 7.5 in 2011.

The No. 2 overall pick of the Detroit Lions in 2010, Suh has 51.5 career sacks — with no fewer than four in any season — across eight years while never missing a game due to injury. In three campaigns with the Dolphins, he tallied 15.5 sacks and 49 quarterback hits.
