Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh signed a five-year, $60 million contract with $40 million guaranteed back in 2010. Anytime other players start signing mega-deals, the media always likes to talk to big-named stars that are coming to the end of their contract. However, Suh is not focusing on getting paid, as there are clearly bigger priorities in Detroit.
”I’ve got two great years in front of me and I’m looking forward to it, especially this year, 2013, to be successful and to move on from there,” Suh said, according to Yahoo! Sports.
The 26-year-old is certainly open to talks with the organization about a contract extension but it is not something he will concentrate on. Instead, he wants to build off his outstanding offseason regiment in order to be a wrecking ball during the regular season. It has been reported that Suh is in the best shape of his NFL career and is ready to destroy offenses in the fall.
”I don’t want any limitations on my ability,” Suh said, according to Yahoo! Sports. ”I want to be able to leave it open-ended, and have an opportunity to let the sky be the limit. If the sky is the limit, let the universe be the limit.”
There is no question the Lions will look to Suh, one of the team’s young leaders, to help propel Detroit into the playoffs in 2013. Obviously, last year left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth. However, the players have worked very hard up to this point in order to redeem themselves from the dismal performance.
