Acquiring Haloti Ngata should come with more change for Detroit Lions defense

As I write this it’s been nearly two full days since The Great Trade Hour of 2015, which is still difficult to fully comprehend. It’s a rare day when the acquisition of Haloti Ngata, a five-time All Pro, can be overshadowed. Jimmy Graham will have that effect, as will any Jimmy Graham-level player who moves to a team that’s been to the last two Super Bowls. But Ngata somewhat...

Ndamukong Suh: Show him the money

Question of the day: When was the last time a truly undisputed top-five defensive player hit the open market? Darrelle Revis doesn’t count; his value wasn’t nearly as high last year as it had been in years past. Mario Williams and Elvis Dumervil were excellent pass-rushers, but both were better placed in the top-five at their position. Nnamdi Asomugha may have been in 2009...

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.
