Detroit Lions training camp preview Defensive Tackle
Suh 4th year 46 starts 22 sacks 137 tackles 1 int 1 fr 2 years left on contract
2013 salary cap hit: $10,492,500
An awesome year in 2012 for Suh. He ranked # 4 on the PFF DT list. 910 snaps 9 sacks 31 QB Hits.
His game vs. Houston was a great game for a DT. Suh rebounded from an average 2011 where he ranked #35 , he did rank #24 in 2010. I expect a great year for Suh.
Nick Fairley 3rd year 23 games 7 starts 49 tackles 6.5 sacks 2 FF 2 years left on hius contract
2013 salary cap hit: $2,696,500
C.J. Mosley 9th year 1st in Detroit 98 NFL games 2 year left contract
2013 Salary Cap Hit: $1,025,000
Israel Idonije 11th year 1st in Detroit. 134 NFL games last year on contract
2013 Salary Cap: $620,000
A nice late pick up for Detroit. Israel ranked # 12 at DE in 2012. He had 2 sacks vs. the Lions. A swing player he played 514 snals at DE and 212 snaps at DT. He had 7 sacks 31 hurries in 2012 for Chicago.
I think he will play mostly inside where is quickness is advantage vs. NFL guards.
Ogedmi Nwagbou 6th year 2nd in Detroit 1 game last year on contract
2013 salary cap hit: $630,000
O was signed late after injuries to Corey, Nick and SLH. He has size and experience. I think he will be the odd man out on the DL. He could be re-signed if there is an injury.
Jimmy Saddler-McQueen 4th year 2nd with Detroit 1 snap
2013 Salary Cap Hit: $480,000
Spencer Nealey Rookie UDFA 3 years on his contract
2013 cap hit $405,000
