You are Ndamukong Suh... what makes the most sense to do?

Do you take the millions of dollars in guaranteed money by signing the highest contract you can get but only a 1/25 chance of reaching the Superbowl, or would you sign with a team that had a proven QB and a much better chance of winning the Superbowl(maybe 1/12)?

Ok consider if your chances were 1/4 to make the Superbowl.
Post your comments on what your chances would be to sign a lower contract.

What would your friends, family and agent tell you?

Have to go with the potential glory. The money is not going to make or break me at this point in my career. I'm not playing for money at this point.

What I would do and what he will do are different. He'll take the money. You know he will.

Since no one can really predict how most teams will do, go for the money if it's out of Green Bay or Houston.

Rams in the mix. They're right there, like us. He has options, more than we know.

I'm turning my attention to Johnathan Hankins who PFF graded an 85.5 last season.

Ndamukong Suh Wants More Than a Billion

Choices in the poll suck.

This article may give us an insight or two.

His wife said it all in the video. Get a job so I can stop lending you money. It's all about the money with Suh and nothing more and I hope he ends up with the team he thinks will be the best and they turn out to be the gutter dwellers of the future.

I’d take the money. Super Bowls mean nothing for the legacy of a defensive tackle. These organizations aren’t looking out for the players, so I don’t see why we should assume it’s in his best interest to take less money for a ring he could buy himself 1,000 times over.

Yes they do...While it's a double standard, QBs are RBs that surpass certain performance milestones get elected to the HOF, whereas many defenders are judged by their championships...

Getting in the HOF opens up a whole another level of employment and financial opportunities and access to networks few have access...

He needs that jacket and defensive linemen need that ring to get that jacket; otherwise, at the least, he's waiting several years and missing opportunities and bonus coin till he's in the HOF...

John Randle and Cortez Kennedy are two names that come to mind who got in without the ring. I’m sure he wants to go to the Hall of Fame, but he’s into Silicon Valley and things like. He’s a really smart guy. He should maximize his earning potential in the league and move on to even bigger things in a growing technology sector. I mean, I’d love for him to take less and come play for us, but I wouldn’t hold it against him. We have people on the boards calling him out of his name because he wants to meet with every team interested and make a decision with his family. It’s pretty ridiculous...
