Lions not interested in trading Ndamukong Suh

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions don't have any plans to trade defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

Last month, with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh absent from the Detroit Lions' voluntary minicamp, rumors started popping up about how the team might be trying to trade him. Suh is entering the final season of his contract, and the Lions would like to sign him to a long-term deal. The thinking behind the rumors was that if Suh made it clear he wasn't going to re-sign, perhaps the Lions could trade him and improve their draft position in the process.

On Monday, Lions general manager Martin Mayhew completely shut down those rumors. He admitted that a team called him in January to talk about a possible Suh trade, but Mayhew didn't have any interest in making a move then, and he doesn't have any interest in making a move now.

Mayhew added that negotiations are ongoing with Suh, and the expectation is for Suh to start working out with the team in mid-May. That's been Suh's offseason plan since he first joined the Lions, and that's the plan again this year. Assuming a trade truly is not on the table, it seems that Suh will be back with the Lions in the next week or two.
