Lions administration is making no bones about it, they expect big things this year.
They might take a big step toward making something happen next week.
Team president Tom Lewand told radio station WJR this morning (via Tim Twentyman of the team’s official website) that he expected to meet with Ndamuking Suh’s agent Jimmy Sexton next week.
Lewand and the rest of the league’s officials will be in Orlando for the owner’s meetings, and Lewand was hopeful business could be done.
“We’ll see if we can put a deal together and I’m hopeful we can,” Lewand said.
Suh and Sexton have a good bargaining position, as the defensive tackle has a $22.4 million cap number the Lions would like to get back under control, so they can make more moves around their big three (earners) to put a contender on the field.
