Formerly believed to be Ndamukong Suh highest bidder, Jets pull their offer

Before they could have any kind of buyer’s remorse, the Jets are getting proactive. As of two days ago, they were said to be the highest bidder among the handful of teams vying for Ndamukong Suh’s services. Not anymore.

At the owners meetings today, Jets owner Chris Johnson said the team has pulled their offer for Suh. Johnson saying he wasn’t originally in on the negotiations, but after speaking with the GM, he nixed it.

The favorite at this point appears to be the Rams, where Suh had just visited last week when his scheduled visit to Oakland was cancelled. Others said to be interested include the Saints and Titans.

Suh was released on the first day of free agency, so he’s been taking quite a long time to make up his mind about where he wants to play, likely trying to play the interested teams off each other to get the best deal. Something Raiders pass rusher Bruce Irvin warned Suh not to do just before it was announced Oakland was out of the running.
