Siri Stafford/iStock/Thinkstock(PITTSFORD, N.Y.) — Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus clarified his comments regarding his contract negotiations Saturday, saying he isn’t necessarily looking to land a contract as lucrative as Ndamukong Suh’s $114 million contract with the Miami Dolphins.
“I’m not necessarily looking at Suh numbers,” Dareus told reporters after practice Saturday. “I just want to be treated right, just like every one of us.”
Dareus told The Buffalo News after the Bills’ preseason win Thursday night that the team was “making it hard” in negotiations.
Asked by the newspaper whether he had a specific number in mind, Dareus responded, “I’ll just say, ‘Thank you, Suh.'”
Dareus was reportedly offered a six-year extension worth more than $90 million.
Bills head coach Rex Ryan responded to Dareus’ comments, saying “I made of it that he’s probably in good position. I mean when you see what the numbers were and all that stuff,” Ryan said. “I might settle for those numbers, but I’m not sure. I don’t play defensive tackle.”
Dareus will earn $8.06 million from the Bills this season.
