Good morning and ROOOOAARRR!!!
Ndamukong Suh might be in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl, but apparently, he is making bigger moves as well.
According to the Sports Business Journal, Suh has decided to leave his agent, Relativity Sports, to find new representation.
The timing of this raises some questions, because he is entering the final year of his contract and Detroit's front office appears to want to sign the defensive tackle to an extension. Doing so would give the Lions cap relief and lock up one of their defensive centerpieces for the long term.
Switching agents might send a couple of different signals. Either Suh wanted to get things done in that area quicker than his agents wanted him to, or there was potentially some disconnect between Suh's pending free agency and whether or not he should explore it.
Or, it was simply time for him to change. Suh has not said anything about the decision, and emails sent to his now-former representation and to his sister, Ngum, who handles a lot of his off-field work, were not immediately returned.
But this is certainly another twist in the question of how much longer Suh will be a Lion.
And now, on to other Lions news from around the Interwebs:
The Lions aren't ready to make player personnel decisions yet, writes Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
Jim Caldwell is blending the old and new when building his staff, writes Josh Katzenstein in the Detroit News.
The Lions will run some no-huddle offense, according to Kyle Meinke of MLive.
