  • According to Ian Rapoport, the Detroit Lions haven't actually started contract talks with Ndamukong Suh, likely because he just recently picked an agent. At this point, a new deal doesn't seem likely in the immediate future, so much like the situation with Matthew Stafford last year, it could take some time for a long-term extension to be worked out.

  • Joique Bell had this to say on Tuesday after agreeing to a new three-year deal with the Lions:
  • Several Lions players tweeted about Bell's new deal on Tuesday. Take a look: Darren Sproles also tweeted his congratulations to Bell. (They were teammates in New Orleans.)

  • Dave Birkett reports that the Lions sent pro personnel director Sheldon White and scout Joe Kelleher to Michigan State's pro day on Tuesday, likely to get a look at cornerback Darqueze Dennard.

  • According to Aaron Wilson, Louis Delmas' one-year deal with the Miami Dolphins includes a base salary of $2.25 million, $1 million of which is guaranteed. The deal also includes bonuses for games played and other incentives.

  • Late on Tuesday night, the Denver Broncos agreed to a six-year deal with cornerback Aqib Talib. The deal is worth $57 million and includes $26 million in guaranteed money, according to Adam Schefter. There is now speculation that this move could result in Darrelle Revis ending up with the New England Patriots.
