Report: Lions Aren’t Optimistic About Signing DT Ndamukong Suh To An Extension


Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the Lions are not optimistic about signing DT Ndamukong Suh to a new contract.

  • Mortensen mentions that if the Lions are unable to work out an agreement before next season, it would cost them a staggering $26.7 million to franchise him.

Suh, 27, entering the final year of his rookie deal and is in a great position to secure a huge contract extension that will once again set the bar even higher for the defensive tackle position. Suh stands to make $11.55 million for the 2014 season and has a massive cap figure of $22.4 million, so a new contract would easily offer them some cap relief.

Detroit has said previously that they are optimistic that a deal will eventually get done with Suh, but there has been little reported progress throughout the offseason.

Last year, 48 tackles, 5.5 sacks and a forced fumble for Detroit. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 2 defensive tackle in the league last season.

We have Suh listed as the No. 2 player in our Top 25 – 2015 Free Agents List.
