"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."
