The Detroit Lions biggest issue this off season is what to do with fiery defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Suh originally signed a six-year rookie deal, under the old Collective Bargaining Agreement, and part of that deal allowed the sixth year to be voided.
That means Suh is set to become a free agent in March and the Lions due to restructuring his deal twice, are in a pretty bad position to get him resigned at a price that will not handcuff the team under the NFL's salary cap.
Due to those two restructurings, no matter what the outcome of this winds up being Suh will count nearly 10 million dollars against the Lions' 2015 cap. Those 10 million dollars makes the thought of applying the franchise tag to Suh virtually undoable. Under NFL rules Suh would make 120 percent of his 2014 salary if the Lions franchise tagged him. When the nearly 10 million dollars of dead money gets added to that the salary cap hit for 2015 if the Lions used this tag would be 36.6 million dollars or nearly a quarter of the projected 2015 salary cap. more >>
