Ndamukong Suh Is Officially the Miami Dolphins' Back-Up Kicker

Ndamukong Suh is officially the Miami Dolphins' second-string kicker.

Head coach Adam Gase revealed to reporters earlier today that if starting kicker Andrew Franks were to go down with an injury during a game, Suh—the team's beastly 6-foot-4, 305-pound defensive tackle—would take over his duties.

During Tuesday's practice, Franks took a break as Suh took over during the team's field goal period. He made two of three attempts, including a successful 39-yard field goal. "Nothing will surprise me what you can do when you're that big of a freak," Dolphins defensive lineman William Hayes told the Sun Sentinel of Suh's kicking prowess.

If you're wondering what Suh is referring to by "that kick," he's talking about the extra point he missed during a 2010 game against the New York Jets when he was still a member of the Detroit Lions:

Considering that Suh was the back-up kicker for the Lions and now fills the same role for the Dolphins, the dude must have some serious skills. NFL teams aren't one to value entertainment over effectiveness.
