It appears that Ndamukong Suh doesn't really see his future in Detroit.
The 27-year-old defensive tackle isn't going anywhere right now during this offseason. But the team haven't yet organised the contract restructuring they wanted.
The idea for the Lions, according to general manager Martin Mayhew, was for Suh to have a new contract sorted out so they could keep their man and free up some money.
However that hasn't transpired and Suh has a salary cap for the upcoming season of over $22 million which the Lions will now have to pay.
This also means that they won't have that money for free agency and will certainly hinder their trading, despite having a relatively good draft position.
It's possible that they could trade him if another team was willing to pick up that salary bill, but that seems unlikely given his recent form.
Suh is apparently focusing on next year meaning that the 2014 will either be a contract season for him or he'll be regarded as one of the best free agents for 2015.
This hasn't stopped the Lions though having signed Golden Tate and although no finance details have been released, Detroit is still thought to have money available for more acquisitions during this free agency period.
