NFL via Getty Images(ALLEN PARK, Mich.) --  The Detroit Lions have announced that they will table contract discussions with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh until after the season.

"I think it's the right thing for us to do," Lions president Tom Lewand said Monday. "It's the right thing for the team. It's the right thing for everybody involved and it allows us to keep the focus where it belongs."

"We have a high degree of confidence that we can work out something that will be mutually satisfactory at the right time and the goal hasn't changed in the least," he added.

This year marks the last year of Suh's five-year rookie contract. Suh will have a cap number of $22.5 million this season.  The goal remains to ink the 27-year-old to a long-term deal after the season.

The Lions drafted Suh with the No. 2 pick in the 2010 NFL draft.
