The Lions have had preliminary talks about a contract with the agents for No. 2 overall draft pick Ndamukong Suh. And while there’s no reason to expect the two sides to strike a deal anytime soon, there’s also no cause for alarm, Lions president Tom Lewand said Wednesday.

Contracts for top draft choices typically don’t get completed until just before training camp in late July — unsigned draft picks don’t count against NFL teams’ 80-player offseason roster limits — and this year doesn’t figure to be any different. None of the draft selections in the first two rounds has signed a contract yet.

“In our case, I’m very, very comfortable with where we’re at,” said Lewand, who handles the Lions’ contract negotiations. “I’ve had dialogue with (Suh’s lead agent, Roosevelt) Barnes — we had lunch together last week — and I’m very comfortable with the dialogue we’ve had to date.”
