Detroit Lions' Ndamukong Suh says long-term extension not priority, but would like to stay in Detroit

ALLEN PARK — Ndamukong Suh restructured his contract in March to give the Detroit Lions a little more salary cap wiggle room. The defensive tackle has two years remaining on his rookie deal.

 He said on Wednesday he’s really not looking far enough ahead to think about a long-term extension at this point.

“I’m two years away from even considering those things but to be honest I’d love to be here in Detroit,’’ Suh said. “It’s a team and it’s an organization that I love being a part of and playing for.

“... It was fun this past Thursday being able to hang out somewhat with our owner at a Red Wings game,’’ Suh said. “It’s fun to be around and have that charisma in this city. If the opportunity is there I’m definitely looking at — I have a house here, that tells you enough right there.’’

 Suh was at Game 5 between the Red Wings and Chicago Blackhawks and rode the Zamboni during one of the intermissions wearing a Red Wings jersey.

 “It was a great experience, it was my first time,’’ Suh said of his Zamboni ride. (Photo from Suh’s Twitter feed with him posing with Wings' Al Sobotka and octopus.)
