It’s a given that Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will hit the open market in March.  With a franchise tag that would exceed $26 million and the plug pulled on contract talks during the season, it makes no sense for Suh to accept an offer from the Lions after the season ends but before he becomes a free agent.

When Suh becomes a free agent, he’ll have interest in playing in New York, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.  Suh realizes the potential benefit of being in the Big Apple, especially with Jay-Z serving as his marketing representative.

Of course, the Jets or Giants would have to be interested, too.  There’s no indication that either team will want him.  According to Schefter, the Bears and Cowboys definitely will be.

Regardless of where Suh plays next year, it’s becoming obvious that the chances of Suh staying in Detroit are floating somewhere between slim and no effin’ way.
