Ford, the Detroit Lions owner, talked to Ndamukong Suh urging him to stay in Detroit before he signed with the Miami Dolphins in March.

“Well I was disappointed (he left) because he was such a nice person and such a good player,’’ Ford said on Tuesday. “I did talk to him and told him I was his friend and would like to have him back. Two weeks later he left.’’

Ford is a regular at Lions offseason practices and was on the sidelines again on Tuesday for the first day of minicamp.

She talked to the media formally for the first time since her husband, William Clay Ford, died in March 2014.

(More to come.)

She seems like a nice lady but can we please have a real owner and a real front office before I die. Please!

This was the first time Mrs. Ford had spoken publicly since she took over control of the team following the death of her husband, longtime-owner William Clay Ford, Sr., in March 2014.
