New Dolphin Ndamukong Suh Buys Fort Lauderdale Mansion for $6.5M

Fearsome defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has discovered his Miami digs. He's settling down in a $6.5 million mansion in Fort Lauderdale, FL, that features six bedrooms and a whopping 11,142 square feet of space, according to the Miami Herald.

After five seasons with the Detroit Lions -- where the star's aggressive on-field conduct cost him more than $250,000 in fines -- he signed a $114 million contract with the Miami Dolphins, becoming the NFL's highest-paid defensive player ever.

His big payday is evident in this purchase. There's nothing subtle about his new home, where a palm tree -- lined walkway leads to the towering front doors, topped by a balcony flanked by stone columns.

The white-walled living spaces combine the comforts of home with the luxury of a five-star hotel. Glass banisters surround the upstairs catwalks that overlook seating areas below. Enormous two-story windows showcase Suh's pool and the waterfront beyond -- 100 feet of which is his alone.

That is, if he ever decides to venture beyond the confines of this magnificent mansion. With the game room, an 11-seat theater room, and an enormous wine cellar, the home offers enough amenities to keep a superstar occupied for days.
