The Miami Dolphins have officially signed free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The move, which has been nearly complete since Sunday, was finalized Wednesday morning, with Suh signing in the afternoon. Suh's contract is expected to be a six-year, $114 million deal, with $60 million guaranteed.

Entering his sixth year in the NFL, Suh has already been a four-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time First-Team All-Pro selection. He has played 78 games in his career, starting all of them, recording 36 sacks, one interception, two forced fumbles, one fumble recovery, and 241 tackles. He was the second overall pick by the Detroit Lions in 2010 out of Nebraska.

Suh, the top free agent prize on the market this year, moves into the Dolphins starting lineup, replacing Jared Odrick, who signed as a free agent with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Dolphins also released two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Randy Starks on Wednesday morning.
