(SportsNetwork.com) - The Miami Dolphins have reportedly won the Ndamukong Suh sweepstakes.
Suh will sign with the Dolphins when free agency opens Tuesday, according to ESPN, for a deal that's worth as much as $114 million with about $60 million guaranteed. He will be paid $60 million in the first three years of a six-year deal.
The deal would make Suh the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL. J.J. Watt of the Houston Texans set the market in 2014 when he signed a six-year, $100 million contract with $51.8 million in guaranteed money.
Suh recorded 239 tackles, 36 sacks and one interception over five seasons with the Lions. A four-time Pro Bowl selection, Suh is known for his aggressive style of play.
The 28-year-old Suh served a two-game suspension in 2011 after he stomped on the arm of then-Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith. He has also received multiple fines throughout his career.
The Dolphins were 24th against the run in 2014. The Lions, on the other hand, finished first against the run.
