Ndamukong Suh joins Dolphins for OTAs

Print

May and June mark a time period on the NFL calendar when players not volunteering to go into their offices makes national news.

One of the highest-profile names to routinely skip voluntary OTAs has been Ndamukong Suh -- whose missed offseason workouts became a yearly occurrence in Detroit from which axe-grinders weaved superfluous narratives.

With a new $114 million contract, however, at least part of the defensive tackle's offseason routine changed.

Suh is in South Beach and participated in the Miami Dolphins' OTAs, which began Tuesday.

Suh was present at the Dolphins' first workout of the season, but had since been absent from voluntary activities. Tuesday's OTA was Suh's first time on the field with new teammates and a new defense.

Thirty-one of 32 teams are holding OTAs this week. Only the St. Louis Rams won't be on the field for voluntary workouts this week. Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team activities over three weeks. No live contact is permitted, but teams can run 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills.

As a fifth reminder, OTAs are voluntary.
