Ndamukong Suh today finally hired a new agent, Jimmy Sexton, several weeks after firing his long-time advisors.

The Detroit Lions have been able to do little in recent weeks to secure their defensive tackle to a new deal due to Suh's lack of representation, but talks are now likely to begin in earnest.

Sexton has a number of high profile clients in the football world including current unattached quarterback Tim Tebow, and Alabama head coach Nick Saban.

He also represents four NFL coaches; Rex Ryan, Doug Marrone, Dennis Allen and Gus Bradley.

But his immediate concern will likely be Suh whose current deal is up for review.

The Lions player's contract for 2014 would count for $22.4 million against the cap and an extension to said deal would give the franchise more leeway to work with free agents.

With the free agent market open as of March 11 both sides will be hoping to come to an agreement before then. 

Before Suh's hire, there had been suggestions that the player would represent himself in negotiations.
