    1, 2, 3 are normal.
    1 and 3 are uncontentious.
    You can use 2. in the sense of "I don't agree that we should do what he suggests."
    It less likely that you will find a use for "I don't agree that we should do what he opines."
    A suggestion is a more concrete utterance than an opinion. A suggestion usually calls for action, but an opinion doesn't necessarily.
