A 1 million lawsuit against Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for an automobile accident 13 months ago in Portland, Ore., has been settled out of court, according to a broadcast report. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, said FOX television affiliate in Portland. The accident occurred around 1 a.m. on Dec. 3, 2011 in downtown Portland. Suh, who attended high school in Portland, was serving a two-game suspension at the time for his highly-publicized stomping incident in a game against Green Bay that Thanksgiving. Saadia Van Winkle, a passenger in the other vehicle, sought medical attention and accused Suh of negligence, reckless driving and intentional infliction of emotional distress. Suh offered to pay 700 "in an effort to buy her silence," according to the complaint filed by Van Winkle. Suh, who had crashed his 1970 Chevrolet Coupe into a light pole, drinking fountain and tree, was not charged in the incident. Police did not open a criminal investigation, even after Van Winkle's complaint, according to FOX 12. A civil suit was officially dismissed last week.

2012 Lions season review: The great disappointment

The Detroit Lions were possibly the greatest disappointment in the NFL in 2012 after going 4-12 to follow a 10-6 year that also saw a playoff berth. The national and local media alike hopped on the Lions’ star trio of Stafford, Johnson and Suh in 2011 a base that any team should be able to build around and find success. In fact I would argue this season is worse than the 2008 in...

Lions looking to replace Jahvid Best

Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew admits that he made a mistake in relying on Jahvid Best being healthy for the 2012 season.  He’s now going to make sure he picks up a back to replace Best for next season. “We need that shifty back that can come in and be a change-of-pace guy and catch passes out of the backfield,” Mayhew said. “A guy that can run routes and get...

Unlike the vast majority of professional athletes, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh maintains a personal Facebook page that he has opened to the public.  It isn’t your typical “Fan Page” that is run by the player’s public relations representative.  It’s actually run by Suh himself.  Granted, he doesn’t post too often and keeps his distance from the internet weirdos...

Lions Coach Jim Schwartz: We’re Not Married to Any Defensive Scheme

However, after a disappointing season that only resulted in 4 wins changes may need...

The struggles had a lot to do with Matthew Stafford's slow start to the season and a defense that struggled to force turnovers. Ultimately, for as much credit as Schwartz...
