Ndamukong Suh decided not to attend the first Detroit Lions off-season workout session today, despite it being the first with new head coach Jim Caldwell, according to the Detroit Free Press.

The Lions pre-season workouts are voluntary, but with Suh being a team captain, and today being the first chance for his new coach to see him in action, his decision to stay away was noted.

However, Suh has a history of training by himself during these sessions. With the chance of earning up to $5600, Suh only took home $2100 in the workout bonuses, by comparison Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson Jnr didn't miss one session.

Suh is also at the early stages of re-negotiating a contract with the Lions, a contract that will see him remain at Ford Field for seasons to come, whilst also making him one of the best paid defensive players in the game.

But the Lions General Manager, Martin Mayhew, is not worried about Suh's work ethic.

He said: "Wherever he is right now, he's doing something to make him better either from a football standpoint or a business standpoint for next season. That's what he's doing as we speak right now, that's what Ndamukong's doing."
