Suh insists getting a new deal from the Lions like Stafford and Johnson did isn't on his mind

The Detroit Lions have had three players selected among the top three in the NFL draft in recent years.

They've extended the contracts of two of those players, giving Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson new deals.

Ndamukong Suh seems to be next in line.

The defensive tackle, though, insists an agreement that would keep him under contract with the franchise beyond the next two seasons isn't on his mind.

Detroit drafted him No. 2 overall in 2010 and signed him to a five-year contract worth as much as $68 million. He started off well, becoming the only rookie on the All-Pro team and being named the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year. After Suh's production slipped in his second season, he bounced back with a solid year in 2012.
