Report: Dolphins confident they will land DT Ndamukong Suh
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Dolphins will be calling Jimmy Sexton to discuss their interest in signing Ndamukong Suh once free agency begins. According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins remain confident about their chances of landing Suh.

The impending free agent is scheduled to visit the Raiders next week. Outside of Miami and Oakland, the Colts, Jaguars, Giants, Redskins and the Lions have all reportedly expressed interested in Suh. According to Omar Kelly of the Sun-Sentinel earlier this week, owner Steve Ross may be prepared to make a high bid on Suh, who could sign the largest deal by a non-quarterback in NFL history. Kelly noted that rival executives believe that Suh to Miami is a "done deal."

Suh is coming off a contract that paid him over $12 million annually, and will likely command a $100-plus contract once he hits the open market. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft completed his fifth season in the NFL with the Lions. He has totaled 181 tackles, 36 sacks and one interception in his career.

Lions' Bell: I'm ready for whatever the team needs me to do in 2015
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Reggie Bush banged up for a good portion of the 2014 season, the Lions leaned on running back Joique Bell to pace the rushing attack, as he finished with a team-high 860 rushing yards.

Barring any offseason moves, the Lions could once again look to Bell as their feature back in 2015, especially since Bush is no longer on the roster following his release last week.

“I think we worked well together,” Bell told the team's official website of his relationship with Bush. “I think we proved our tandem our first season playing together when we made history. But I’m definitely ready to handle whatever the team needs me to do."

Bell, who has totaled 15 rushing touchdowns the last two seasons, had his best year as a pro in '14 and showed the football world he could handle a job as a feature back in the NFL.

“I think it was more so for the front office and for coaches to see that I could handle that,” he said. “It wasn’t for me as a player. I know what I can and can’t handle as a player. As far as me carrying the load, I know what I can and can’t do.

“I always knew I had the ability. It was just about getting the opportunity. I didn’t know when that opportunity would come. I just had to be patient and wait."
