The roster is too talented to trade Suh right now. The better course of action is to hope Caldwell can turn around the ship and get this team into the playoffs which will hopefully encourage Suh enough to want to stay. There's certainly enough talent on the roster to compete. Stafford needs a big year.If the team falls apart early in the season, then yes we should look to trade Suh before the deadline as I doubt he will stick around. That being said, the NFL is not like other sports, in that there aren't nearly as many marquee trade deadline deals so who knows how realistic of a possibility this is.
I can see why national writers would look at our record last year and say we need to trade Suh before he walks for nothing, but with an explosive offense and a dangerous front 7, this team needs to give itself a chance to win. Full stop. We would get a 3rd round compensatory pick for Suh anyway, (is this not correct?), so what's the rush to trade him now for a 2nd? Does not make much sense.

Sounds a little like SEC fans claiming other teams couldn't survive an SEC schedule, and turning a blind eye to Mizzou and Texas A&M cutting thru it like hot butter.I hope I never "understand" the logic that having no one at $12M this year is better than having Suh at $22M. And in reality, it's having no one at $22M, cause who are we really going to sign with the other $10M at this point? Dang, we missed out on Julius Peppers. *sarcasm*

Silly article.To get an idea of how rigorous this writer thinks, consider his premise:The best option at this point is for the Lions to strongly consider trading Suh to the highest bidder before the preseason concludes. OK, so we strongly consider it. Are we done? I guess we must be better off because we have just exercised our best option.He compares the cost of Atkins and Ngata as difference makers, claiming Suh isn't. He's out of his mind. Go watch the film and tell what that Lions DL would be without him. Improve the secondary and this is top 10 defense.
