The Detroit Lions did try and keep Defensive tackle; Ndamukong Suh, but in the end it was just too darn expensive.  The 28 year old is just coming off perhaps his best overall season and he is still in the prime of his career.

The Lions threatened they would use the franchise tag on Suh, but the price was to high.  Now the defensive player is going to be eligible to hit free agency on March 10th.

That is one player I would really hate to see go.  He had been named  a first-team All-Pro for the third time in his five year career.
