Lions Suh’s New Agent: Jay-Z
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is teaming up with Jay-Z to help him with a potential contract extension. Suh recently fired his agents. Jay-Z currently has several sports stars on his roster of clients, including Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia, Thunder forward Kevin Durant, Giants receiver Victor Cruz and Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano. Suh will make 12.55-million-dollars in 2014, but will count for more than 22-million toward the Lions' cap number. Signing an extension is the likeliest option to get the cap hit down to a more reasonable figure.
