Tim Duncan has decided to opt into the final year of his contract at $10.3M, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
Since there's nothing you can say about Duncan that his game doesn't already, we can say that we're happy that we don;t have to spend the entire offseason wondering if he is going to retire or not. Thank you, Tim.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Lions will not use the franchise tag on DT Ndamukong Suh.
There has been a lot of back-and-forth internally as to whether the Lions want to bring Suh back and obviously cost is a major issue as he will command quite the hefty salary on the open market. But they won't use the franchise tag here as they know the bitterness it will cause between player and team. Look for the Lions to make the defensive lineman a competitive offer but they won't break the bank to keep him. Analysis: Howard Bender
