Oakland Raiders are preparing themselves for a busy free agency period in the next few months with plenty of money to spend and plenty of holes to fill.

The Raiders cap situation means they will have to spend to avoid being under the minimum spend limit that the NFL implements.

This means fans should expect the Raiders to be a big player in free agency, with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh one of the star free agents that Oakland are interested in.

Furthermore, it was revealed on Thursday that the Raiders will be meeting with the Detroit Lions star next week in a bid to persuade him to make the move to California.

"The courting of Ndamukong Suh is underway. NFL Media columnist Michael Silver reported Thursday that the Oakland Raiders are planning to bring the free-agent defensive tackle in for a visit next week, per a source familiar with the team's plans," reported.

Suh will hit free agency on March 10 after the Lions balked at paying him the money he wanted, and they also took the decision not to franchise tag him - a move that would have cost them $26.8 million for the 2015 season.

Instead, Suh free agency tour of the NFL will begin next week before he is likely made the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.

The Raiders could be the perfect fit for Suh, both financially and schematically. Oakland runs a four-man front system that would allow Suh to continue wreaking havoc, with dominant run stopper Khalil Mack also likely to benefit tremendously from playing with the defensive stud.

It remains to be seen what Sub decides during free agency, but what do you think NFL fans? Where would Suh fit in best? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
