Ndamukong Suh is not going to be traded.
So said Detroit Lions General Manager Martin Mayhew on Monday, after scuttlebutt bubbled up that the defensive lineman was on the block.
Mayhew: We’re not talking to anybody about trading Ndamukong Suh. That’s not on the table. #Lions— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) May 5, 2014
Mayhew added that one team had called just after the season ended and its advances were rebuffed.
This being the final few days leading up to the draft, when all front-office executives are busy putting up smokescreens, Mayhew’s comments were met with a fair bit of skepticism.
Mayhew says Lions not looking to trade Suh. Not sure I ever heard a GM say, ″yes, we’re actively looking to trade our best player.” #Lions— Paul Kaplan (@pkapproductions) May 5, 2014
