If you are a Lions fan or just think Ndamukong Suh looks great in a Detroit uniform, you should use these last 13 games to really savor him. Because after that, it looks like it’s curtains for Suh in Detroit.
According to Adam Schefter, the controversial—but incredibly talented—defensive lineman is already planning his escape from the Motor City:

The four-time All Pro will be a free agent for the first time after this season, and is reportedly very interested in playing in New York. The Jets, in particular, have a ton of cap space ($21.2 million as it stands right now), and just this week coach Rex Ryan lavished Suh with praise as “as close to Warren Sapp as I've seen.”
High praise for sure, but perhaps it was a bit calculated as well.
