Report: Raiders planning to meet with Ndamukong Suh next week

Thursday March 5th, 2015

The Oakland Raiders are planning to host defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for a visit next week, according to a report from NFL Media's Michael Silver.

Suh, 28, is set to become a free agent after the Detroit Lions decided against using the franchise tag on him, which would have been a $26.9 million cap hit. Detroit still has the opportunity to re-sign Suh.

Several teams have been linked to Suh in recent days, including the New York Giants, the Indianapolis Colts and the Miami Dolphins.

The Raiders are projected to have more than $50 million in cap space.

The Lions selected Suh with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft. The 28-year-old has earned four Pro Bowl nods and has been selected to four All-Pro teams. 

Over 16 games last season, Suh recorded 54 tackles and 8.5 sacks while helping the Lions rank first in the NFL in rushing defense.
