Hey there, Fort Lauderdale. Say hello to your newest, giant neighbor.
This off-season, the Miami Dolphins made six-foot-four, 307-pound Ndamukong Suh the highest-paid defensive tackle in the history of football when they gave him a six-year, $114 million
And now Suh has used some of that big money to purchase himself a big house in Fort Lauderdale worth a reported $6.5 million.
So, after he spends his Sundays mashing quarterbacks' faces into oblivion and crushing running backs' bones into a fine powder, Suh will be able to relax in a massive 11,142-square-foot contemporary-style mansion that is located in Coral Ridge and sits right on the Intracoastal Waterway.

Suh's new crib has six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a wine cellar, a kitchen with two islands, a gym, and a movie theater. The house also has floor-to-ceiling glass and vaulted ceilings and, of course, a pool lit up by giant torches. Because if you're gonna have a pool, might as well have it lit by giant torches.
The pool is surrounded by palm trees and has a cascading waterfall, a spa, and a covered porch that sits just a few feet from the water.
According to Gossip Extra, Suh apparently got the house "cheap," purchasing it for 500 grand less than the original asking price.
