Raiola to Suh: Just sign the contract already

Only three first-round draft picks remain unsigned, one of them being No. 2 overall pick Ndamukong Suh.

It’s inevitable a handful of rookies miss training camp practices each year, and then equally inevitable a soon-to-be veteran teammate tells them it’s time to stop missing training camp practices.

Enter Lions veteranĀ Dominic Raiola.

“I haven’t even sent him a text or anything, but I’d like to tell him, ‘Just sign the damn contract already. You are missing some good things here,’” Raiola told The Detroit News.
As of Tuesday, Suh had missed four days and six practice sessions.
“I understand the business side of it, but when you are talking $40 million, $42 million, $43 million, I don’t know what the big difference is,” Raiola said. “Any way you cut it, after taxes, that’s $20 million. So you’ve got to get that name signed and get out here.”
