Last year, the Detroit Lions signed wide receiver Calvin Johnson to a long-term extension. This offseason, general manager Martin Mayhew has made it clear he'd like to do same with franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford.

Once the Lions take care of Stafford, the next logical step would be locking up defensive cornerstone Ndamukong Suh.

When asked if he's given much thought to signing a long-term deal with the Lions, Suh said there's plenty of time, but he would prefer to stay in Detroit.

"I'm two years away from even considering those things, but to be honest with you, I'd love to be here in Detroit," Suh said. "It's a team and it's an organization I love being a part of and playing for."

Suh also implied his decision to purchase a home in the area shows his commitment to being here long-term.

Selected No. 2 overall by the Lions in the 2010 NFL draft, Suh has three years remaining on his rookie contract, but the third year is voidable.
