Ndamukong Suh plays football in exchange for money.In his case Nick Bellore Jersey White , a lot of money.But the Rams defensive tackle said Monday night he had better offers than the one he got from the Dolphins in 2015.“I was offered more than Miami gave me from other teams,” he said matter-of-factly.Suh said he actually was “very close” to staying with the Lions, but that the team made a decision to not go to a certain level. The Dolphins gave him a six-year deal worth $114 million, with $60 million in guarantees. That deal was agreed to before the official start of the market, which means a lot of teams were doing something other than discussing the parameters of a deal. But until the league proves it actually cares about tampering, nothing will ever be done.Suh signed a one-year, $14 million deal with the Rams last offseason Damon Harrison Jersey White , and said he admired their “all-in” their approach in recruiting him. But ever the businessman, he said he’d consider a return to his previous teams when he hit free agency again.“No hard feelings with people I respect,” Suh said, adding that his mother taught him to never burn bridges.Especially if those bridges lead to even bigger piles of money. The Detroit Lions underwent a regime change in the offseason, and the early returns already have long-suffering fans of this team fearing the worst.A 1-3 record in the NFL preseason saw the Lions finish with a minus-34 point differential. But if this is cause for concern, new coach Matt Patricia isn't showing it."I think for me, I'm really just trying to look forward as far as what we've got to do this week Womens Graham Glasgow Jersey ," Patricia said. The Lions open the regular season playing host to the New York Jets on Monday, and that's where Patricia is placing his emphasis.His players are also opting to take the same approach as their coach."We're kind of using the preseason as a stepping stone," linebacker Jarrad Davis said. "Now we're playing and practicing for a new team, somebody that we want to go beat, and it's actually going to count."Defensive back Quandre Diggs, who agreed a three-year, $20.4 million contract extension with the team on Monday Miles Killebrew Jersey , figures the Lions are simply in the midst of the natural growing pains that come from a transitional phase."I've dealt with change in the past in college (at Texas)," Diggs said. "It really isn't different. It's the nature of the business."Still, surrendering a league-high 27.75 points in preseason play has to be a worry for a team that put its future in the hands of Patricia, formerly the defensive coordinator of the New England Patriots."I think we got some things accomplished as far as player evaluation," Patricia said. "That was our biggest point of emphasis. We got some fundamentals laid down."He'll continue to evaluate and reassess. On Monday, Patricia reached back into his past as the Lions claimed linebacker Marquis Flowers on waivers from the Patriots."We'll still be working the roster as best we can," Patricia said. "We'll be bringing guys in. There's a lot of guys that have been released here over the last couple of days Womens T.J. Jones Jersey , and more to come, so we'll continually try to look at those players to see if they help upgrade us."After the Lions concluded the preseason with a 35-17 home loss to the Cleveland Browns, Patricia allowed that the process of implementing what he wants to do is going to take a long time. Exactly how long was a commitment he wasn't prepared to make."I don't think we ever really put a finite time on that," Patricia said. "We certainly have a lot of work to do, which is definitely part of this as we go. I thought by the end of training camp, things were working a lot more smoother, a lot better."It's just a process that we go through and where that journey takes us Darius Slay Jersey White , we'll find out."NOTES: Rookie receiver Brandon Powell switched from No. 1 to No. 10, but it was not of his own volition. "I don't know," Powell said. "I just came in here this morning and it was hanging in my locker. I was just happy to have a number." ... Flowers was issued No. 59. ... LB Trevor Bates was waived to make room for Flowers. ... Two players picked up on waivers Sunday, CB Dee Virgin (Houston) and OL Andrew Donnal (Baltimore), joined practice Monday. Donnal was issued No. 78 and Virgin is wearing No. 30.
