The Lions have their new head coach, and now they're trying to lock down their star defensive tackle.
Ndamukong Suh and the Lions have mutual interest in talking about an extension for the most feared player in the NFL.
Suh is entering the final year of his rookie-contract, and is coming off a season which saw him make the All-Pro team for the second time in his career.
On the other side of the ball, Detroit have other worries.
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson recently had surgeries on his right knee and a finger. Lions general manager Martin Mayhew told reporters Wednesday that Johnson's knee surgery was a relatively minor arthroscopic procedure. Johnson missed two games last season because of his knee ailment. He finished with 1,492 yards receiving and 12 touchdowns, earning a spot on The Associated Press NFL All-Pro team for a third straight year. Johnson pulled out of the Pro Bowl because of his injuries and was replaced by Chicago's Alshon Jeffery.
