Agent Eugene Parker acknowledged that Suh's market is set between Bradford and the No. 3 overall pick of the draft, Tampa Bay defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, and added that he hoped to strike a deal with the Detroit Lions soon.
There was never a chance of the Lions paying Suh more than the $50 million guaranteed that Bradford received. Once again, the question returns to how Parker and fellow agent Roosevelt Barnes will navigate the $15 million gap in guarantees between Bradford and McCoy. Suh will get something in between, but it's not entirely clear yet where the common ground will fall.
