The Miami Dolphins signed Suh to a six year, $114.3 million contract in March after Suh spent five years with the Detroit Lions. With a $25 million signing bonus and $59.9 million guaranteed, the defensive end is now the highest paid defensive player in NFL history. Suh set a record for personal fouls with nine in his first two years in the league, but the Dolphins are more interested in Suhs high level of play and four Pro Bowl selections.
