Main      Career stats      Game Logs      Latest News


Suh enters his fifth year out of Nebraska as a disruptive force that sometimes has trouble keeping his composure. He has 27.5 sacks in his first four years in the league and added 36 solo tackles and 6 passes defensed in 2013. It's very possible that we still haven't seen Suh reach his max potential and the development of a pass rush from other areas of the defense could really help him in 2014. (May 28)

Lions | Ndamukong Suh to explore free agency? (Tue Jul 29, 07:31 PM) - Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has been given permission to explore free agency in order to gauge his market value. The Lions want Suh to make an informed decision and sign a deal he's happy with.

Our View: This is....interesting to say the least. Suh hitting the open market means he's likely going to leave Detroit next year. The team doesn't want to franchise tag Suh next offseason because he would cost $26.7 million. The Lions are risking a lot in potentially (likely) giving up one of the league's most dominant interior lineman. Perhaps Suh's antics have grown tired in Detroit.

Lions | Ndamukong Suh contract talks pushed back (Mon Jul 28, 03:25 PM) - Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh's contract extension discussion will be put on hold until the end of the season, according to a source.

Our View: Suh could end up getting the franchise tag next offseason, although that seems like a longshot at this time. The veteran defensive tackle has an inflated salary and would cost $26.7 million to franchise tag in 2015. We could see Suh hit the open market if the Lions can't work something out before the start of free agency.

Lions | Ndamukong Suh would be expensive to franchise tag (Thu Jul 24, 05:53 PM) - Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh would cost $26.7 million under the 2015 franchise tag.

Our View: Thanks, but no thanks. The Lions are not going to shell out that kind of money for Suh on a one-year deal. He has the leverage in any long-term contract negotiations.
