Even though the agents for defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh have a history of contract holdouts for high draft picks, the No. 2 overall pick and the Lions are confident he will be in training camp on time. Training camp starts in late July.
"Like I've always said, I hope and plan to be in training camp," Suh said Friday after the Lions ended a three-day minicamp in Allen Park. "Where the contract stands? I have no clue. My agents are handling that right now."
Suh is represented by Roosevelt Barnes, a Lions linebacker in 1982-85, and Eugene Parker. Parker represents San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree, the 10th overall pick last year who held out until October. That did not seem to faze Lions general manager Martin Mayhew. "I don't think it's going to be a big issue," Mayhew said. "I know his agents very well. He's got two great agents who are very accomplished guys."
