NICK FAIRLEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

Nick Fairley's future hinges on upcoming 2015 season

The one-year contract Nick Fairley signed in the offseason is essentially a make-it-or-break-it deal. Fairley's 2014 season was cut short due to injury and the Lions chose to let him walk, despite Ndamukong Suh signing with the Miami Dolphins. However, there are concerns surrounding Fairley. The Auburn standout has yet to play a full season in the league and has dealt with weight...

This stat about the St. Louis Rams defensive tackles is just plain scary

The St. Louis Rams may already have had the best defensive line in the NFL last year. That didn’t stop them from going out and getting one of the most coveted free agent defensive tackles on the market this offseason. Nick Fairley signed an extremely team-friendly one year deal worth $5 million, giving them one of the best pass rush DT combos in the league. Don’t believe me?...

Why the Lions should let Ndamukong Suh walk

The Detroit Lions are reportedly pulling out all the stops to keep superstar defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in Motown. They should relent and allow him to leave via free agency. If Suh is not given the franchise tag by March 2 or signed by March 10, he will become a free agent. It would be nothing short of salary cap suicide to tag Suh, considering his number would be an outrageous...

Report: Nick Fairley could end up being 'trade candidate'

Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press writes that unless former first-round pick DT Nick Fairley shows improvement in the coming weeks, he could end up being a “midseason trade candidate.” Birkett mentions that Fairley is now the last remaining hope for the Lions’ 2011 draft class as he and RB Mikel Leshoure are last remaining players of that group still on the team’s roster...

Apparently Lions’ DT Nick Fairley lost too much weight during the offseason

Looking to supposedly motivate defensive tackle Nick Fairley the Lions declined to pick up the $5.5M team option on his contract once the 2015 season rolls around meaning Fairley will be a free agent. Now whether or not you thought it was going to be pure motivation for Fairley or a ploy to free up money for Suh is up for debate but the fact of the matter is the former first round...

Detroit Lions will not pick up 2015 contract option on their 2011 first round pick

Nick Fairley will be a free agent after the 2014. The Detroit Lions made that official with the announcement that they are declining the 2015 5.5 million dollar option on Fairley’s rookie contract.
