It may be March, but it’s always football season. The NFL Draft is just a couple months away and, after the draft, free agency will be in full swing. Every team – including the defending champ New England Patriots – will at least make an effort to attract top free agents. As the saying goes, if you aren’t improving, you’re declining.
There are some talented free agents available this year. Solid players such as DT Nick Fairley, OT Bryan Bulaga, CB Brandon Flowers, OLB Brian Orakpo, and WR Jeremy Maclin. But there are 9 stars that will command the most money and attention during the 2015 off-season.
1. Ndamukong Suh (DT Detroit Lions)
If the Detroit Lions don’t find a way to bring back tag-team defensive tackle partners Nick Fairley and Ndamukong Suh, they can forget about getting back to the playoffs in 2015. Suh is one of those star players that you love if he’s on your team, but hate if he’s not. Forget the classless actions (stepping on QB’s, starting fights, etc.), Suh forces opposing offensive coordinators to game plan around him. At age 28, Suh is a 4-time Pro Bowler and 3-time first-team All-Pro. There could be a few teams that will stay away because of his perceived attitude, but any other team with the salary cap space and money to afford Ndamukong Suh will jump at the opportunity.
