The Lions will not exercise DT Nick Fairley's fifth-year option for 2015.
It means he'll be eligible for unrestricted free agency next offseason. According to the team's official website, GM Martin Mayhew wants Fairley motivated for 2015, and doesn't believe he's a "$5.5 million player right now." The No. 13 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Fairley has dealt with weight and injury issues. A consistent and healthy 2014 could still result in a monster payday. Mar 24 - 1:32 PM
