Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is one of the most well-known players on the team, much less the NFL. However, if you checked out Tom Rothman’s Twitter feed, you’d see that his reputation is not a good one.
Suh has always had a habit of being considered a “dirty” player by many, but his latest act might have signaled the end of his time with the Lions. Suh has now been suspended by the NFL for one game for stomping on the injured Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. This suspension wouldn’t be so bad if the next game the Lions had to play wasn’t in the Wild Card Playoffs in Dallas, or rather the most important game they could possibly play.
Even more interesting is that Suh is scheduled to become a free agent once the season officially ends, and the Lions still have to figure out if Suh is worth the franchise tag, given his history of bad hits and fines. Combined with his pattern for aggression and even sometimes skipping out on training workouts during the offseason, there’s always the question of whether Suh is actually the leader on the team that many are expecting him to be.
