We are on day three of Ndamukong Suh contract watch, and so far there haven't been any new developments today. The weekend was filled with them, as the story seemingly changed every hour, but today things have been quiet on the Suh front. Perhaps this is a case of "no news is good news" and the two sides are quietly trying to get something worked out. On the other hand, negotiations could be at a standstill right now, which would not be good at all with Suh about to miss his third full day of training camp.
In case you're wondering what Suh's thoughts on this situation are, don't expect to hear anything in the conceivable future. He is staying quiet for the most part. In fact, the only thing he's posted on Twitter since the holdout started is this:
"Judge not by with appearances, but judge with the right judgement" John 7:24
This tweet is obviously about the fact that many people are reacting negatively toward Suh for him not getting a deal done before camp like he originally said. His sister posted a couple things about that subject as well, although she was much more direct with her thoughts.
#thingsuglypeopledo Speak negativity towards others...speak what YOU know and let the green grass grow!
I now accept I live in a culture based on ASSUMPTIONS and people who know NOTHING can and will say ANYTHING.
To say that this is a bad situation all-around is an understatement. Suh is taking heat for not signing; his agents are taking heat for being involved in another holdout; and even the Lions are taking some heat for letting this happen. I know this is a very Captain Obvious thing to say, but I will be ecstatic when a deal is finally worked out and we can all just move on and worry about football.
