Lions have discussed trading Ndamukong Suh


Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is arguably the team’s best player on that side of the ball, the problem being his on-field issues and antics have labeled him as a dirty player and gotten him in trouble with the league. Well the Lions have explored trading the polarizing player, at least informally.

“The first thing you must understand about Detroit and Ndamukong Suh is that the Lions have indeed had conversations with other teams about trading Suh,” Bleacher Report’s Mike Freeman reports.

Freeman goes on to explain that talks are not serious and just a “feeling-out” process that one league executive called standard operating proceude.

“What the Lions are doing is standard operating procedure,” one team executive said. “Just in case they don’t think they can sign him, they’re preparing for worst case. It’s smart.”

The thought is to have trade options available if they don’t think they can workout a deal with Suh or one that financially makes sense.
