This comes on the heels of a $100,000 fine from a low, and unnecessary block on Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman John Sullivan. NFL players are getting sick of Ndamukong Suh’s dirty plays.
“I hesitate to call a player dirty simply because I don’t know their intent, but I do know what he did was illegal and I do know he has done it multiple times so it comes a time when enough is enough,” New Orleans Saints tight end Ben Watson told Andrew Siciliano on NFL Network. “We need to get what he is doing rectified and we need to sit down as players and talk to him. We are talking about player safety and obviously this is a play that lies outside of that. As players, we need to hold ourselves accountable.”
It looks like the NFL has listened and is ready to take action if and when it happens again.
