Jets rescind offer for free agent DT Ndamukong Suh

27 March 2018

Johnson was vague on reasons for the move, admitting though that it "didn't seem to be in keeping with our long-term plan". That contributed to the Jets' decision to back away from Suh.

Jets CEO Christopher Johnson told reporters Sunday in Orlando, Fla., where the annual league meetings take place through Wednesday, that he and general manager Mike Maccagnan had a change of heart about their offer to Suh.

Ndamukong Suh spent the past three years with the Dolphins, after his first five came with the Lions.

"On reflection, and in concert with Mike, we've rescinded the offer to Suh", said Johnson (via NJ.com), who took over the Jets previous year when his older brother, Woody Johnson, became the Trump administration's ambassador to the United Kingdom.

"I don't normally talk about discussions with players and contracts", Maccagnan said.

Suh canceled a planned free agency visit with the Oakland Raiders last week and returned to the Portland area after visiting the New Orleans Saints, Tennessee Titans and Los Angeles Rams.

"Our thinking just changed a bit", Johnson said without elaborating.

Suh has said the Jets made the largest offer, something Johnson couldn't confirm.

The Jets are looking to replace defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson, who was released because of cap and production concerns. Johnson himself described Suh as "one of the best football players out there", but he evidently didn't want him on his team.

In other developments, Johnson said he was "absolutely" disappointed that Kirk Cousins didn't take his team's free-agent offer, but he expressed optimism about the "Plan B" at quarterback. "I'm really excited about it".
