ORLANDO — The Los Angeles Rams, who already have the highest-scoring offense in the NFL, added former Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to an already impressive line that includes Aaron Donald.

The Rams signed Suh to a one-year, $14 million contract Monday.

Suh, 31, was the highest-profile free agent on the market after being waived by the Dolphins two weeks ago. The Dolphins avoided having to pay Suh $17 million out of a six-year, $114 million contract that coaxed him to Miami after starting his career with the Detroit Lions.

Together with Michael Brockers, the Rams are stacked at defensive tackle but not so at defensive end, where they traded Michael Quinn to the Dolphins this offseason.

The signing is a bit of a relief for the Dolphins, because at one point, it appeared Suh was closing in on a contract with the AFC East rival New York Jets, but that organization pulled its offer, clearing the way for the Rams.

Suh still will cost the Dolphins a salary cap hit of $22.2 million over the next two seasons.
