There were rumors earlier this year that said the Lions were contemplating trading Ndamukong Suh, their former first round pick. Well today GM Martin Mayhew was quick to deny those reports. He stated the team has zero interest in trading their defensive super star.
“We’re not looking to trade him. We have no plans to trade him,” Mayhew said. “I haven’t had any conversations with anybody about trading him, except in January I did get a call from a team that had interest. Offered me a box of old tube socks, and I said no thank you. Other than that, there’s been no conversations. There’s been no gauging the interest level. There’s been none of that that’s happened or has been authorized by me, so I don’t know where that came from. That’s not on the table.”
Suh has a $22.4 million salary-cap number and is entering the final year of his rookie contract, factors that surely helped fuel speculation of a trade, but it looks like it is not going to happen.
