Age is always a factor that absolutely must be taken into consideration when signing a free agent long-term. Suh is just now reaching the prime of his career. Only turning 28 this past January, one could even say that Suh has yet to play his best football.
Unlike fellow elite free agent Darrelle Revis, age cannot be portrayed as a reason not to sign Suh, but instead as a reason to want him even more. Even the most pessimistic of fans would have to admit that Suh has at least four or five great years of football left in him.
Suh is a player whom almost never misses time due to injury. I expect this trend to continue to reign true. You can write it in, Suh will play close to, if not all 16 games in 2015, barring suspension.
