    And according to an ESPN report Thursday, the Lions "are not optimistic" about reaching a new deal with Suh at all. Caldwell may have reasons to be optimistic about getting a deal done with Suh, but Suh has even more reasons to be optimistic that he’s going to get paid a fortune over the coming years, from the Lions or some other team. Ndamukong Suh will not have a deal until at least after the 2014 NFL season. For the first time, there appears to be concern about whether the Detroit Lions will actually reach a deal for a new contract with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

The team is tabling contract talks with polarizing defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the season, a sign that, at the very least, the club and the player are somewhat far away from being able to reach a deal that would benefit both of them. For the Lions, another massive season from Suh could push his asking price up beyond what he and age
