No word on contract from Suh or Lions as minicamp ends

The Lions ended their mandatory minicamp on Thursday, which means that defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will next be with the team when they start training camp.

Will he have a new contract extension when it comes time to report? Suh didn’t speak to reporters after the end of minicamp, so we can’t know his feelings about the pace or tenor of negotiations. Lions coach Jim Caldwell did meet with the media, but his answer didn’t tell us much more about the Lions’ feelings at this point in the process.

“I think the way in which this game is, every year is going to be a little bit different,” Caldwell said, via the Detroit News. “Not the first guy that’s gone through a contract negotiation and it won’t be the last. I think those things, [General Manager] Martin [Mayhew] and [team president] Tom [Lewand] and those guys and ownership, will do a tremendous job. What I have to do is stay focused on what’s happening out there on the field and get our guys ready to play.”

There’s been no word from either side about a deadline to cease negotiations before the 2014 season nor has there been much discussion about how talks are going. We can infer from the lack of an agreement that the two sides haven’t found a middle ground yet and that should keep Suh’s contract on plenty of minds in Detroit as the season approaches.

    When he gets a new contract, will he sign it or just stomp his footprint on it?

    Proud of Suh for not giving the media any sort of press conference or comment.

    Stick to that as much as possible, Ndamukong. They’re only out to smear your name anyhow. Talk to Marshawn Lynch…he can help you out with that strategy! It’s a good one.

    Hopefully the Lions work out a nice 7 year deal with him ASAP.

    SUUUUUUH!!!!

    (Thumbs down me bc you wish he was on your team)

    :p

    I think he is waiting to see what crappy o line green bay goes with first.

    So far, his actions have spoken volumes, but, ultimately, Suh will have the last word on this. Two words. Goodbye Detroit.

    He’s not going to start negotiating until McCoy signs a new deal.

    Looks like he has a bald spot on his cheek…kind of a badly shaped heart

    Even as a good dt is he really worth so much cap space?

    Why does no one talk about the leverage the lions have? If a deal does not get done this year, they simply franchise tag him and pay perhaps a million or two more for one year.
