Ndamukong Suh picks new agent
More From ESPN.com
Jimmy Sexton representing Ndamukong Suh likely means more money for the Pro Bowl DT, and more problems for Detroit in contract negotiations, writes Mike Rothstein. Blog
Suh had been searching for representation since he fired Eugene Parker and Roosevelt Barnes of Relativity Sports in January. In that time, there was speculation he would join Jay Z's firm, Roc Nation Sports, for contract negotiations and possibly even represent himself.
But now, he is going with one of the most well-known agents in the business to handle his upcoming contract negotiations or leap into free agency. Roc Nation is still believed to be handling part of his representation, but not his contract.
Suh enters the final season of his five-year contract with the Detroit Lions in 2014 and is due $22.4 million against the cap starting March 11. Throughout the offseason, both Lions general manager Martin Mayhew and team president Tom Lewand have said they would like to sign Suh to a long-term extension.
Now that he has a contract agent in place, those negotiations can begin.
