Tannenbaum: Suh must 'do more than just play well'

Ndamukong Suh has a job to do. Well, maybe more than just one.

This offseason, the Miami Dolphins showered the veteran defensive tackle with the grandest contract for a defensive player in NFL history: $114 million over six years, with $60 million guaranteed.

"A lot of resources are going to Ndamukong. We’re not hiding that," Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum said Thursday, via the Palm Beach Post.

"In a cap system, players who take up a big part of your cap have to do more than just play well.”

For that kind of money, Miami wants Suh to be more than just a great player. Upon signing the mega deal, Tannenbaum has tasked him with another challenge.
