Lions Rumors: As Many As Ten Teams Could Target Ndamukong Suh In Free Agency

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will be the most coveted defensive free agent in free agency after the season, and nearly 1/3 of the NFL's teams could be positioning themselves to make a run at him.

Here's Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports with the report:

Sources told Yahoo Sports there could be as many as 10 teams interested in making titanic pitches to Suh. That number includes Suh’s current team, the Lions, which still has the option of restructuring some contracts and retaining the four-time All-Pro via the franchise tag. At a price of $26.7 million for 2015, the weight of that one-year contract would be potentially crippling to the franchise, but the three sources said Detroit is keeping the option on the table.

Some of the teams Robinson hears as being in the mix are the Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns, and Atlanta Falcons. Suh's likely mammoth price tag might scare off a couple of these teams, and could very well spell the end of his time in Motown if the team strays away from the franchise tag.
