Ndamukong Suh Does Some Soul Searching On Afternoon Sports Therapy
Ndamukong Suh has a big decision to make.
The free agent defensive tackle is obviously the most dominant interior defensive lineman in the NFL, and probably expects to be compensated like that. A good comparison is Gerald McCoy of Tampa Bay, who last year inked a seven-year, $98 million contract.
The reigning defensive player of the year, J.J. Watt of Houston, last offseason signed a six-year, $100 million deal.
Suh figures to command similar money, but the Lions may not be able to afford it given all the long-term cash they have tied up in Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson. They could franchise tag Suh, which would keep him around another season at the hefty price tag of about $26 million.
Suh* stopped by Afternoon Sports Therapy to talk through his issues and weigh his options. Check out the segment below.
