Ndamukong Suh Still In Nebraska; Jahvid Best To Sign First?

According to Mike O'Hara, who is now writing for FOXSportsDetroit.com, Ndamukong Suh has not traveled to Allen Park yet. I figured he would be there in anticipation of signing his contract, but perhaps this shows that he and the Lions are not even close to that right now.

Suh, who lives in Portland, had not come to Detroit as of Friday afternooon.

"He's in Nebraska, working out to stay in shape," Rosey Barnes, an agent for Suh, said Friday afternoon. Barnes is an associate of agent Eugene Parker.

Based on what Jim Schwartz had to say about this situation earlier, it appears the main issue is that the Rams have not signed Sam Bradford. Without that "domino," the Lions and Suh are at standstill.

"Suh’s a little bit different," Schwartz said. "I think Trent Williams fell in at four. Like I said a little bit before, when one domino falls, all of a sudden you start getting a lot more and I think the biggest domino in this draft is obviously Sam Bradford at (No.) 1.

"And then once that domino falls, then all of a sudden the other ones will fall pretty quickly in place behind because you’ll establish a little bit of a structure. That’s the business of agents. That’s the business of front-office people.

At this point it certainly sounds like Jahvid Best will sign before Suh does. Whether or not that happens before practice tomorrow remains to be seen, but Schwartz made sure to point out that he doesn't anticipate the Best situation being a "long-term thing."
