    Interesting thing to follow in 2014 if this deal doesn't get done. The Lions would basically be forced to let Suh hit FA since franchising him would cost nearly $27M with the way his deal is structured.

    This is very interesting from the Seahawks POV, because Suh grew up being a Seahawks fan... should he hit FA in 2015.. who knows?

  • I guess if you're going to dream....dream big. I just don't see us being serious contenders for his services considering all the in house talent that we have to start resigning. Who knows though?

  • Dude is a beast on the field, but his character is questionable though. He's one of those guys you love to have on your team but hate him if he's not. Would love to have him, but what it would take to acquire him and what you would have to pay after next season is up, is goona be way out of budget for the Hawks.

    I'm told Lions trying to re-sign Suh; no trade ahead. He's on the same offseason program last 3 years. Absence not contract related

  • Suh is half Tez, half Romanowski. Hard to trust the guy because he clearly has no control over his actions on a football field. Off the field, it's clear he's a good guy and he seems sincere in saying he wants to limit his infractions..... but that just doesn't seem to happen for him. I'm thinking of a game where he lobbied hard to be made captain. Thinking that may be the answer to his inner demons, the Lions did so and Suh went right out and committed some over the top personal foul his first game as captain. I do hope he gets it together (somewhere in the AFC).

  • Bennett, Mebane, Suh, and Avril would rival the '85 Bears for the most dominant defensive line of all time.

    Of course, it will never make sense in the age of the salary cap . . . but we can dream.

  • I really am fine with what we have so my dreams don't lean that way to be honest. I'd much rather have the LOB given the horror show I had to watch from the early 90's until 2011 masquerading as a secondary in a pass happy league.

  • It seems likely to me that Suh will hit UFA. The Lions basically can't franchise him, and that means that can't threaten to franchise in negotiations. Also, and this is pretty significant: Detroit.

    The fact that the Lions are attempting a trade is a pretty big clue that he isn't likely staying with the Lions much longer.

    Even with the hit to Suh's image and his inconsistent production, he's just such a rare player that I expect interest in him to be pretty strong in free agency. It would be cool to see him end up in Seattle but for anything more than Michael Bennett money I don't think we could budget it, unless Russell Wilson signs for less than expected.

    In a trade though? I would be surprised. Maybe a team with money to burn like Oakland might make some sense as a trade partner, but for most teams he's just going to be too expensive.

    Suh may not be perfect and he may be overpaid but Detroit needs more players like him, not less. The Lions are already the NFL's most finesse team even with the league's dirtiest player anchoring their defense.

  • Some team will be the Washington Redskins to his Albert Haynesworth.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.
    49ers webzone: noise should not be the overwhelming reason a team is favored. they need to spray noise-damping foam onto the ceiling of that place.
