Ndamukong Suh is up for grabs.
The Detroit Lions decided not to use the franchise tag on the defensive tackle, saving the organization (for now) $26.8 million.
Suh was paid $22.4 million for 2014, and with the tag, he would have been due $26.8 million for 2015.
Although Suh is one of the top defensive tackles in the NFL, and in his prime, mind you, $27 million dollars is just too much money to pay one guy for one year.

The 28-year-old will be sought after by several teams, and the Lions still might sign him.
