ESPN is reporting that the Detroit Lions and defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh have reached a five year deal worth more than $60 million. In addition, the deal reportedly is loaded with $40 million guaranteed. Due to the mini hold out, Suh has already missed four days of the Lions training camp.
While the deal has not been officially signed, many media outlets expect the contract to be finalized some time today as Suh is scheduled to fly into the Metro Detroit area this morning and be on the field with his teammates for the afternoon practice.
Once Suh does officially sign, it will leave only two first round picks from this past spring’s draft unsigned, Seattle Seahawk’s No. 6 overall pick Russell Okung and Buffalo Bill’s No. 9 overall pick C.J. Spiller.
Suh of course was the second overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft out of the University of Nebraska.
