• Lions GM eyes long-term extension for Suh

    Summary of 7 articles · Updated Jan 23, 2014
    Suh's extension is one of the key issues for Detroit this offseason. Suh, the Lions’ star defensive tackle, was the first pick on the first day of the first-ever Pro Bowl draft on Tuesday. So getting a deal done would be helpful for the Lions on multiple levels. It would open up cap space. It would tie Suh to Detroit. In 2013, Suh had 49 tackles, six for loss, 5.5 sacks, a forced fumble, a safety and showed improved awareness with a career-high six passes defensed. Hes expressed that he wants to be here in the long-term, so I think theres a time frame where that might get done, but I dont know when thats going to be. It is as simple as good players want to play with other good players, especially in football, where the only way a team can be successful is by having top players at as many positions as possible.
