Is real estate the next move for the Miami Dolphins’ Ndamukong Suh?

Miami Dolphins player Ndamukong Suh might have the largest contract for a defensive player in NFL history — $114 million over the course of six years. But instead of going on an ill-advised spending spree, Suh is investing in his future, taking an offseason internship with Related’s Stephen Ross.

“I guess the simple answer is I would be bored if I didn’t,” Suh told Complex when asked why he took the internship. “The more in-depth answer would be I went to school for a reason. No disrespect to other guys who have gotten sociology degrees and communications degrees — especially if they end up using them rather than just getting them because it’s the easier route.”

And Suh is using those pointers he picked up from his team’s owner to get into real estate.

Five years ago, Suh invested in a development in Nebraska, where he attended university and apparently worked with Warren Buffett, according to Fox Sports.

“I think, financially, that’s a great goal to have, but from an overall standpoint of success I wouldn’t say that’s the ultimate measure; there’s a lot of rich people who are unhappy,” Suh said when asked if he was working to become as rich as his billionaire mentors. “I think the combination of doing what you love and having fun with it, and at the same time being financially set for your future family — kids, as well as extended family — is one of my goals.” [Fox Sports] Christopher Cameron
