NFL Rumors: Lions have discussed trading Ndamukong Suh


The inability of the Detroit Lions and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to make any progress on an extension has been well documented.

According to Scott Bischoff of New Era Scouting, the Lions have discussed the possibility of trading Suh to move up in the first round of May’s draft.

Joel Corry of The National Football Post and CBS Sports believes any team that acquires Suh would have to do so in a sign-and-trade because of Suh’s giant contract ($12.9 per season).


It is unlikely the Lions trade Suh for a couple of reasons with the inability of teams to take the cap hit his contract would bring probably being #1. Plus, Suh remains one of the elite defensive lineman in football.

Of course, with the two sides stalling in contract talks and Suh’s massive contract, it is certainly possible the Lions would be interested in dealing him.

Suh had 49 tackles and 5.5 sacks last season.
