Ndamukong Suh isn't too worried about his contract situation with the Detroit Lions.
Suh is in the last year of his rookie contact that he signed after being selected as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Suh, who was an All-Pro in the 2010 and 2013 seasons, is scheduled to make $22.4 million this season.
Finding the right deal
He has stated that he wants to remain in Detroit, but at what cost? If the Lions aren't able to come to terms with him on a new deal this season, they can let him slip away to free agency or offer him a one-year franchise tender of $26.7 million for the 2015 season.
Suh is a big reason why the Lions ranked No. 6 against the run last season and is undoubtedly one of the best defensive players in the NFL. He's also known for not always being the good graces of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for his playing reputation on the field and some minor incidents off the field.
Suh has 135 tackles and 27.5 sacks in his four-year career and is content to let his agent handle the contract talks while he focuses on training camp.
"That's what you've got agents for," Suh said via ESPN.com.
"They can take care of business, and just go from there. I don't have a timetable. That's my agent. I don't have to worry about it. I can focus on football, and that's my job, and that's what I'm going to do."
Suh changed agents during the offseason, hiring Jimmy Sexton to handle his contract negotiations.
The Lions also have a new coach this season in Jim Caldwell and a new defensive coordinator in Teryl Austin, who is excited about having a player of Suh's caliber to anchor his defense.
Tom Newand, Detroit's general manager, said he thinks the two sides can come to an eventual agreement but isn't sure what the timing might be.
''It's been my experience over the years that when a player says he wants to be here and we indicate that we want him around we have a good track record,'' Lewand told SI.com.
