Lions' Mayhew 'not leaning any way' on possible Suh restructure


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2015) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew indicated all options are still on the table when it comes to bringing defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh back in 2015.

However, when Mayhew was asked about the possibility of placing the franchise tag on Suh, Mayhew said no decisions have been made at this time.

"I'm not leaning any way," Mayhew said, via the Detroit Free Press. "It's not something we have to decide right now, so I'm not inclined to make that decision."

Mayhew also said that while talks between the Lions and Suh's agent Jimmy Sexton have been "extensive," neither side can be described as nearing a deal. Franchising Suh would be difficult due to the fact that hiis tag would be worth $26.9 million for the 2015 season.

Suh is one of the NFL's most dominant defensive tackles in the game. In 2015, Suh totaled 53 tackles and 8 1/2 sacks.


Lions GM: We're 'very optimistic' about re-signing Ndamukong Suh


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew told reporters he's "very optimistic" that the club will re-sign defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh this offseason, per RTV6 in Indianapolis.

"We're negotiating right now," Mayhew said. "I feel good about it. He likes the situation in Detroit."

Barring a franchise or transition tag, Suh is set to hit the market when the league year begins on March 10. The Lions will reportedly have a cap charge of $9,737,500 in 2015 for Suh regardless of whether he re-signs with the team, is franchised or moves on to another team.

Suh, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 draft, completed his fifth season in the NFL. He has totaled 181 tackles, 36 sacks and one interception in his career.


Report: Lions still undecided on whether to tag Ndamukong Suh


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2015) With Monday being the first day NFL teams can franchise players, the Lions have not decided if they want to tag defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh or not, sources told ESPN.

The Lions have the next two weeks to place the tag on Suh. Tagging Suh would elevate his salary to $26.87 million for the 2015 season. If no deal can be reached by March 7 and Suh is not tagged, he'll become a free agent March 10.


Teryl Austin anticipating Ndamukong Suh staying with Lions


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/13/2015) The top free agent in this year's group is Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who's set to earn a big pay day at some point this offseason.

Though it's quite possible for Suh to leave Detroit, defensive coordinator Teryl Austin is still factoring his key defensive cog to be back with his personnel in 2015.

“It hasn’t crossed my mind,” Austin told the Lions' official website. “I’m planning on him being back.”

The Lions have until March 7, when the legal tampering period begins, to strike a long-term deal with Suh before other teams can speak to his representation. The Lions also have the option of franchising Suh, though that number is projected to be a $26.87 million tag figure.

As for Austin, he understands the importance of having Suh back. And until he's gone, Austin appears to be acting like he's sticking around.

"You can’t get around it. You can sugar coat it or say whatever you want, but he’s a great player. He changes the game," Austin said.


Lions' Ndamukong Suh's contract voids, set for free agency


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh had his 2015 contract year void Friday, per CBSSports.com's Joel Corry.

Absent a franchise or transition tag, Suh is set to hit the market when the league year begins on March 10. The Lions will have a cap charge of $9,737,500 in 2015 for Suh regardless of whether he resigns with the team, is franchised or moves on to another team, per the report.

Suh is in line to be one of the top free agents on the market during the 2015 offseason and has expressed interest in joining the Seahawks, though budgetary concerns may prevent Seattle from being heavily involved. He recorded recorded 8 1/2 sacks and 53 tackles in 2014.


Report: Ndamukong Suh wants to sign with Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Free-agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh wants to sign with the Seahawks, according to Bleacher Report.

The Seahawks are Suh's number-one choice, per the report. However, it may be difficult for the Seahawks to fit Suh in the budget, considering that quarterback Russell Wilson will soon be offered a huge contract extension. Marshawn Lynch, Bobby Wagner and Russell Okung are among the other prominent Seahawks who are scheduled to reach unrestricted free agency after the 2015 season. Suh, who recorded 8 1/2 sacks and 53 tackles in 2014, is poised to land a big free-agent deal this offseason.


Charles Woodson would like Ndamukong Suh on Raiders


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2015) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is set to be one of the NFL's top free-agent targets . At least one NFL veteran has made it clear he'd like Suh to join his team.

Speaking to ESPN.com, Raiders defensive back Charles Woodson said that Suh is the type of dominating defensive player that any team would want to add.

“I know I would be no different. That guy is one of the best, overall, period in the NFL," Woodson said. "Would I like him on our team? Believe it.”

Suh was taken by the Lions with the second-overall pick in the 2010 draft. Until March 7, when the legal tampering period begins, NFL teams won't be able to negotiate with players' agents. Until then, the only team that can stay in contact with Suh's agent, Jimmy Sexton, is Detroit. The official free-agent period starts March 10, when the new league year begins.

The Lions have reason to bring Suh back as they'll have a $9,737,500 cap charge for Suh regardless if he's franchised, re-signed or gone, due to bonus money prorated for the 2015 season.

One reason Woodson would like Suh is to make the Raiders' defensive backs' jobs easier. In 2014, Oakland allowed 238.1 yards through the air per game, which ranked 17th in the NFL.

“The better your front is, the better it makes your job as a defensive back and the ability to know that the ball is coming out soon," Woodson said.


Lions' president optimistic team will re-sign Ndamukong Suh


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) Lions team president Tom Lewand is expecting the team to be able to re-sign defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

"I really do believe he's got a lot invested in here, in himself and the community and the football team," Lewand said Sunday morning during an interview on WDIV-TV's Flashpoint. "He wants to have success in the NFL, obviously, but he wants to do that with us.

"I think there's a very, very good chance that we can get something done with him in the next few weeks."

Suh can become a free agent if the team does not use their franchise tag on him by March 2. 

"We've had a good chunk of our salary cap tied up in three players over the last few years," Lewand told WDIV. "Matthew, Calvin and Ndamukong have all had very lucrative contracts under the old rookie system, and even as Matthew and Calvin have done their extensions. So we've done that, we've lived in that environment. There's no reason we can't continue to live in that environment."


Lions' Calvin Johnson wants to keep Ndamukong Suh in Detroit


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson said he's willing to do just about anything to keep defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh in a Lions uniform, reports MLive.com.

Suh is set to become a free agent in March if the Lions cannot reach a deal with him and Johnson said he wants Suh to remain a Lion.

"I'll do whatever I got to do," Johnson said.


Justin Tuck: Raider Nation would appluad signing Ndamukong Suh


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) If defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh doesn't sign a long-term deal with the Lions, then he will become a free agent March 10 and there will be plenty of teams interested in the Pro Bowl lineman. 

Raiders defensive end Justin Tuck indicated if Suh wanted to sign with Oakland, then he would be welcomed in Raider Nation.

"(He's) Raider-ish," Tuck said, per the Detroit Free Press. "And that's one of the reasons why I know Raider Nation would applaud that move, beyond the fact that he's an awesome football player. He kind of fits the mold of ... the toughness and the ferocious player that built the Oakland Raiders."

It is speculated Suh will receive a contract worth at least $100 million. Tuck believes the three-time All-Pro deserves such a lucrative deal.

"The thing about him, you know what you're getting every day. Some of the tactics, you could probably do without, but he's a hell of a football player," Tuck said. "I would love to have the opportunity to line up beside of him and let him take all the double teams that I normally take."


Lions GM Mayhew: 'Every option' available in Suh negotiations


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he had a good conversation Monday with defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, who is set to become a free agent. Mayhew said "every option" is open when it comes to negotiations.

Mayhew even said using the franchise tag on Suh is an option.

"If we decide to franchise him, we'll have room," Mayhew said.

Suh, who was the No. 2 pick in 2010, just completed his fifth season in the NFL. He has totaled 181 tackles, 36 sacks and one interception in his career.


Report: Up to 10 teams could make 'titanic' offers to Suh


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) There could be as many as 10 teams interested in making "titanic pitches" to Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh if he hits free agency, reports Yahoo Sports.

The Jaguars, Browns and Raiders will have the most money available and would be expected to join the bidding, the report said, mentioning the Jets and Falcons as other potential suitors.

Lions coach Jim Caldwell told reporters that keeping Suh, a four-time All-Pro, is one of the team's top priorities. Suh will become an unrestricted free agent if Detroit does not slap the franchise tag on him.

That one-year contract would cost $26.7 million, a number that's probably prohibitive.


Caldwell: Re-signing Ndamukong Suh 'One of our highest priorities'


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2015) Lions coach Jim Caldwell told reporters Monday re-signing star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is one of the team's top priorities heading into the offseason.

"That will continue to be one of our highest priorities," Caldwell said. "He's a dominant, dominant player who we benefit from having his services. He's quite a player."

Suh is set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason and it would cost the Lions $26.7 million to apply the franchise tag to the 27-year-old.

Suh totaled 53 tackles in 2014 with 8.5 sacks. He's had 36 sacks in his five seasons with Detroit.


Suh: My feet were numb, didn't know I was stepping on Rodgers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2014) In his successful appeal, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh claimed his feet were numb "and he couldn't tell the difference between [Packers quarterback] Aaron Rodgers' feet and the ground," reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The NFL initially suspended Suh one game for stomping on Rodgers' calf and ankle Week 17, then reduced the punishment on appeal to a $70,000 fine without a suspension.

It seems Suh's explanation might have helped him get on the field for Sunday's playoff game at Dallas.

Rodgers expressed skepticism about Suh's intentions before the appeal ruling. "If you step on something in your everyday life, or if you step on somebody on the field, the first reaction seems to be looking back and maybe apologizing with your hands," Rodgers told 540 ESPN in Milwaukee. "Or pulling your foot back right away. And I'm just not sure that's what happened."

Asked about the incident at a press conference Wednesday, Suh repeatedly said: "Next question."

The Lions are 7-point underdogs at Dallas, with most observers giving them a better chance at the upset thanks to Suh's presence.


Lions' Ndamukong Suh wins appeal, will play against Cowboys


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2014) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has won his appeal and will be allowed to play Sunday against the Cowboys. Suh was suspended one game by the league for stepping on the legs of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Sunday's game.

Appeals officer Ted Cottrell reduced the punishment to a $70,000 fine for Suh.

Suh and the Lions are currently 7-point underdogs heading into Dallas to face the Cowboys. They opened as 8-point underdogs.


Rodgers: Suh didn't look back or remove foot right away


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/30/2014) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked Tuesday whether he agreed with the NFL suspending Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for Detroit's playoff game at Dallas. Suh received the suspension for stomping on Rodgers' ankle Sunday.

"Well, I don't know," Rodgers told ESPN 540. "I'm anxious to see what happens with the appeal. If you step on something in your everyday life, or if you step on somebody on the field, the first reaction seems to be looking back and maybe apologizing with your hands. Or pulling your foot back right away. And I'm just not sure that's what happened."

Suh appealed the suspension and is hoping his punishment will be reduced to a fine.


NFL suspends Lions DT Suh for wild-card game; will appeal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) The NFL has suspended Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for Sunday's wild-card game against the Cowboys for his actions in Week 17 against Green Bay. Suh will appeal the suspension, with either former UFL coach Ted Cottrell and Buccaneers Hall of Famer Derrick Brooks presiding, per CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

Suh was seen stepping twice on the leg of quarterback Aaron Rodgers while backpedaling in the second half of a Week 17 loss at Green Bay. Rodgers left the game with a calf injury, but returned in the third quarter, prior to Suh's incident.

"Suh did not respond in the manner of someone who had lost his balance and accidentally contacted another player who was lying on the ground. This illegal contact, specifically the second step and push off with your left foot, clearly could have been avoided." NFL vice president of football operations Merton Hanks said in a statement.

This comes as a huge blow for the Lions, who were already without Nick Fairley (knee) for the second half of the season. Suh leads all defensive tackles with 36 sacks since his rookie season in 2010.

The Lions opened as an 8-point underdog at Dallas. The line has dropped to 7 points in favor of the Cowboys, prior to the one-game ban.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Suh, who already has a reputation as a dirty player, was seen stepping on Aaron Rodgers' ankle twice while backpedaling in the second half of a Week 17 loss at Green Bay. Rodgers left the game with a calf injury, but returned in the third quarter, prior to Suh's incident.

"I did have a chance to look at it. We looked at it closely and I had a chance to visit with him and all those kinds of things, which you would anticipate, you would expect," coach Jim Caldwell said. "And the league's taking a look at it and we'll see what happens and have a ruling about it soon."

The Lions opened as an 8-point underdog at Dallas. The line has dropped to 7 points in favor of the Cowboys.

Lions' Suh: 'Money's not everything' when it comes to future


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh said Wednesday "money's not everything" when talking about his future plans, before directing further inquiries about his contract situation to agent Jimmy Sexton.

The Lions were hopeful to sign Suh, who is expected to be a free agent after the season, to extension in March, but negotiations broke down and the two sides have been at an impasse since Suh switched agents. 

It is believed Suh is looking for a contract similar to the $100 million deal Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt received in September. A profile in The Wall Street Journal characterized Suh as being in pursuit of becoming a billionaire. Suh said that characterization is not entirely accurate.

"I don't know if it's a quest to be a billionaire," he said. "It's more about being successful on and off the football field. (Right now) is on the football field, and obviously everything else is icing on the cake. But I pride myself on not just playing football. Got my degree for a reason, and plan on using it."

Suh has totaled 32 tackles, 4 1/2 sacks and 27 quarterback hurries through 11 games.
