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.


Report: Lions DT Suh could be suspended for wild-card game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2014) Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh could be suspended for Sunday's wild-card game against the Cowboys, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports. 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.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.


Mayhew: Lions have no intentions of dealing Ndamukong Suh


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/23/2014) Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he has no intentions of trading defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, who could be a free agent after the season. Mayhew added he doesn't expect the team to be active at the trade deadline, according to the team's official website. 

Lions won't comment on Ndamukong Suh's contract status


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) The Lions won't comment on whether they expect defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to return next season, according to mlive.com.

Lions president Tom Lewand said the team is focused on football right now. "We said back in July that the reason we were tabling discussions was for a specific reason -- so we could focus on football -- and that we wouldn't be commenting," Lewand said. 

The two sides worked on a deal in March, but Suh changed agents around that time, which complicated things. Negotiations were stopped in July after the two sides couldn't reach an agreement. There's a sense that Suh will take his talents elsewhere once the season ends. Lewand said he had "no comment" when asked whether he thought Suh would stay in Detroit.

"Stats are stats and games are games," Suh said Wednesday. "I don't really have a comment for that.

"I think I've played pretty well. I haven't really took the time to say, 'Let's see how I've played over the last five weeks, four weeks, whatever it is.' I take week by week, game by game and go from there."
