MIAMI (The Miami Herald) — A running joke in NFL circles is that, in the eyes of coaches, while the offseason conditioning program is voluntary, “so is making the team.”

There’s no questioning Ndamukong Suh’s place on the roster. The Dolphins’ $114 million man could probably not show up until Labor Day and still start Week 1.

But Suh, who has a history of skipping these weight-lifting sessions during his time in Detroit, made a strong first statement Monday that he takes seriously the Dolphins’ massive investment in him.

Suh was among the dozens of players to report for the first formal lift of the year, a source tells the Miami Herald. The Dolphins’ other top two offseason acquisitions — tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Kenny Stills — were also in the building Monday.
