Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has left Relativity Sports as a client. He cannot sign with another agent for at least 5 days.

if they weren't getting the job done, does that mean Suh wants to stay in Detroit and his agents weren't cutting it? Does it mean Suh wants a team-friendly deal, and his agents were greedy? Does it mean that Suh wasn't getting as much money as he feels he deserves?

There are many ways we could read into this. I think the most likely scenario is that Suh wants to stay in Detroit and help build this team up, because it has been said Mayhew is looking to extend him (I believe this is true- I don't remember 100% clearly though) and if his agents weren't getting the job done it would make sense they were fired. The nature of agents is to get their clients as much money as possible, so I find it hard to believe that they were lowballing Suh. It's very possible that Suh wants a good deal that doesn't handcuff the team, and his agents were greedy and wanted the biggest deal possible so they get paid more.

Or maybe my glass is just half full?

I'm taking it as glass half-full; at least this is a sign that Suh is ready to negotiate, I think.

I hope he doesn't sign with one of the Rap stars who have signed several MLB players. Jay-Z wanted Robinson Cano to get $300 Million from the Yankees over 10 years.

With contract negotiations looming, Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh changing agents


Quote:
Entering the final year of his contract, with a massive $22.4 million cap number, the Detroit Lions have expressed interest in signing All-Pro defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to a long-term extension.

But those negotiations won't be with Suh's long-time agent Roosevelt Barnes of Relativity Sports. Suh will be changing representation, Barnes confirmed with Mike O'Hara on Thursday.


Quote:
Suh is already the highest-paid defensive tackle in football, by virtue of his lucrative five-year rookie contract which paid him more than $60 million. But unlike many high-priced draft picks, he has delivered on the field, earning All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors three times in his first four seasons.


Quote:
Suh has been with the Lions for four seasons. Suh has recorded 186 tackles and 27.5 sacks. He's also been extremely durable, never missing a game due to injury in his career.


What would you pay Suh?

Suh deserves to remain the highest paid player at his position. A contract similar to what the Bengals gave Geno Atkins (5 years, $55 million).

Yeah anywhere between that 50-55 million dollar mark really seems fair for Suh. I know his numbers are down but that's because this staff sucked when it came to creativity. An I'm not saying act crazy either but literally these guys were pretty vanilla even when things fell apart. Moving Suh around this line should and always should be a priority. In every game there will be a miss-match on the line against Suh and moving him around creates problems. That's the type of player he is and should of been used like, not as a DOUBLE team machine on the inside only.

Dude gets no credit for being a supreme athlete either at his size. He can play so many downs it shouldn't be a big deal for Lions to throw out a hybrid look 30% of the game with a three DT set.

Idk how the defense is going to look but I know the Ravens throw a lot of different looking front's though they technically play the 3-4. Hopefully we can start getting the best out of our best and most disruptive player on defense instead of making him just a double team machine on the inside.

I think he deserves 5 yrs/$55 million, maybe even $58 million... with incentives based on postseason success.

I just really want to see that $22.4 million come down. Shocked

Not looking good. Confused

Per a league source, there’s a growing sense that Suh will select Jay Z, at a minimum for Suh’s off-field opportunities.


Quote:
The source also tells PFT that Suh has been spotted at multiple Jay Z concerts in recent weeks. At a December concert in Nebraska, Jay Z wore a black Nebraska jersey with Suh’s Cornhusker No. 93 and “S. Carter” on the back. Jay Z also gave Suh what the kids (and some of the old people like me) call a “shout out” from the stage in Detroit on January 10.

That's what I was afraid of. Well, we can forget about him being affordable.

It's a wrap then, Jay about to be Suh's agent. For those that may not know much about Jay-Z, he is very cerebral and conscious of what he does and says. This ain't a coincidence.

I'm hopeful that if he hires Jay-Z, it's just for off the field prospects, and he hires someone else to handle his football business.

I think that's unlikely, but not out of the question. It seemed like Jay-Z wanted to expand his business and landing a player like Suh would help him branch into football in a big way. Especially if he gets him a monster deal.

Victor Cruz is represented by Jay Z for off the field opportunities only, so its possible Suh could do the same.

If Suh and his representation asks for too much in an extension will the Lions be forced to cut him after 2014 due to his high cap number? I can't fathom the Lions could field a competitive team with 3 players taking up so much of the cap.
