In case you haven’t heard, on Tuesday the Detroit Lions traded the Baltimore Ravens for nose tackle Haloti Ngata. Ngata has been selected for the Pro Bowl five times and was part of the Ravens Super Bowl XLVII winning team. Here is a video to help you to get to know Ngata a little bit before you get to see him in the Lions’ Honolulu blue and silver knocking out opposing quarterbacks.
The ghost of Ndamukong Suh will be haunting the Detroit Lions even though he is no longer part of the team. Thanks mainly to the multiple restructures of Suh’s contract, the Lions will lead the NFL in dead money this coming season.
Detroit sports fans have been put through quite a bit in the last couple of months with star players leaving town. First it was Max Scherzer signing with the Washington Nationals, then it was Ndamukong Suh agreeing to terms with the Miami Dolphins.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley may very well be the next player to leave the team via free agency. Reportedly, the Indianapolis Colts are currently outbidding the field for Fairley’s services by a wide margin. Fairley is considered by many to be the second ranked defensive tackle in free agency behind Ndamukong Suh.

With Ndamukong Suh set to sign a six-year, $114 million deal with the Miami Dolphins, we figured it would be a good time to check out some of his highlights as a member of the Detroit Lions. As a fan of the Lions, I would be more than happy if these were the last highlights that we see of Suh.
In this edition of Tigers News and Notes we will provide you with the key moments from today’s Spring Training game against the Atlanta Braves along with other important news coming out of the Detroit Tigers camp.
