A report has immediately surfaced of what the Detroit Lions offered their prized free agent after his five-year rookie contract expired.
The Lions offered Suh $17 million per year, which would amount to $102 million with $58 million guaranteed.
This still would have been enough to make Suh the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.
Pro Football Talk revealed what the Lions were willing to do to keep Suh on Twitter.
