Colts ‘outbidding’ teams for Nick Fairley

I had not previously seen this report – but I guess it’s good news seeing as how Ndamukong Suh is headed to Miami for huge dollars. As the hosts of a recent talk show on NFL Sirius Radio recently stated, when Fairly is staying out of trouble and shows up and decides he wants to play football, he can be pretty unstoppable.

Lions defensive tackle Nick Fairley is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on Tuesday, and reportedly, the Colts are outbidding the competition by a wide margin.

According to Bleacher Report’s Ian Wharton, the Colts are offering twice as much guaranteed money as any other team.

I mean, it is Bleacher Report; so it seems like nothing they report comes to fruition but they have gotten better over the years. I still have a hard time believing someone at Bleacher Report outside of a guy or two (Ian Wharton ain’t one of them) has a well-placed source somewhere, and this isn’t being reported anywhere else.

Also, Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole said the Colts would make a strong push for Suh. No evidence that really happened anywhere either.

Sign me up for Fairley and Greg Hardy next season if it can happen, and lock up your daughters.
