Detroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch, who earned $3.2 million in a one year deal with Detroit last season, is looking for a substantial pay raise for 2012 in free agency. Cleveland's $42.5 million deal with D'Qwell Jackson seems to be the deal that Tulloch is basing his needs around, looking for a contract to the tone of six million dollars per year.
Tulloch had 111 tackles and three sacks from the MLB position with the Lions in 2011 after a similarly fruitful career in Tennessee, but might find it hard to find a team willing to almost double his salary for those services. He has reportedly been linked with the Philadelphia Eagles, who are in need of linebacker help this offseason. He's a good player, we'll find out if he's good enough to get anyone in the NFL to bite on his contract demands soon.
