NICK FAIRLEY RUMORS & GOSSIP

St Louis Rams sign Fairley, Ayers

The St Louis Rams defense was solid last season, although some people thought they underperformed to a degree. It seemed like they were just a player or two away from being one of the most dominant and disruptive units in the league. They have used free agency to fill a couple holes and add some depth to an already productive defense. There are now a multitude of pieces defensive...

St. Louis Rams sign DT Nick Fairley

The Rams had Kendall Langford as a starting caliber player playing in rotation with Aaron Donald and Michael Brockers at defensive tackle last season. They cut him this off-season because he was owed 6 million and that didn’t seem worth it for a player who only played 494 snaps last season. The Rams have found their replacement for Langford here by giving Fairley a 1-year, 5 million...

Nick Fairley Signs with the St. Louis Rams

Former Detroit Lions first-round pick Nick Fairley has agreed to join the St. Louis Rams. It’s a move that seemingly came from nowhere. St. Louis already boasts two dynamic interior defensive linemen in the form of Michael Brockers and Aaron Donald. Where Fairley fits in there is anyone’s guess. Skill has never been a question regarding Fairley. However, his struggles have been...

Report: Colts offering double than everyone else for Nick Fairley

According to Bleacher Report’s Ian Wharton, the Indianapolis Colts are making a serious run at Nick Fairley. If Fairley joins Ndamukong Suh departing in free agency, this would leave the Lions without their 2010 and 2011 first round picks with nothing to show for it. As for Nick Fairley’s next home, I’ve heard the #Colts are offering around double the guaranteed money as...

Indianapolis Colts Rumored to be Willing to Seriously Overpay for Detroit Lions DT Nick Fairley

Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley have been a rather dangerous duo on the defensive line for the Detroit Lions the last few years. Suh has done the bulk of the work, but from time to time Fairley has looked as good as a first round pick was expected to look. Just not enough for the Lions to pick up his option for another year.So, like Suh, he is going to be a free agent on Tuesday....

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...

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. Fairley has often appeared unmotivated and out of shape during his three years with the Lions. General manager Martin Mayhew has stated that the Lions have tried to encourage Fairley...
