Ndamukong Suh Says Agent Will Pick Where He Plays Next Year


Ndamukong Suh and his agent, Jimmy Sexton are all the buzz on the world-wide web this afternoon. That’s because the Detroit Lions Pro Bowl defensive tackle told the media on Wednesday that it’s likely Sexton will pick his team in 2015 and beyond.

"“It’ll be Jimmy’s decision, so we’ll go with that. You can call Jimmy.”"

When asked if he meant that Sexton will pick the team he plays for next year, Suh said, “Probably will. Yup.”

The questions were raised today when reporters asked Suh whether or not he thought Sunday would be his final game at Ford Field in a Detroit Lions uniform. He stated that it is not his decision whether that will end up being the case.

Suh and the Lions halted contract talks before the start of training camp to focus on football. Suh signed with Sexton during the off-season after firing his old agency, Relativity Sports.

It is also very likely that Sexton will set out to make Ndamukong Suh the highest paid defensive tackle in professional football.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed fellow defensive tackle Gerald McCoy to a seven-year extension worth up to $98 million. Defensive end J.J. Watt also inked an eight-year, $100 million contract earlier this year.

Suh’s rookie deal expires five days after the Super Bowl.

"“I don’t think about things like that,” Suh said. “I think, most important, we’ve got to go out there and get a win and kind of go from there.”"

Over his five-year NFL career in Detroit, Suh has established quite the dominate reputation around the league. He has racked up 33 career sacks, 10 of them in his rookie season, and 5.5 of them coming this season. He has also been voted the leagues dirtiest player two times.

Suh’s presence on the field is also one of the biggest reasons that the Lions defense is ranked No. 2 in the NFL and the teams overall record sits at 9-4.

"“All you have to do is turn on the film,” Lions coach Jim Caldwell said. “I think everybody that plays against us can see what kind of impact he has on a ballgame.“He’s a wrecking crew that most people don’t leave him alone.”"

If Suh does in fact leave the Motor City following the 2014 season, what will his legacy be in your opinion? Leave us your thoughts in the comments below!
