Ndamukong Suh: I can’t be friends with a quarterback

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is a polarizing player. Mostly, people don’t like him and they view him as a dirty player. Those dirty plays have kept Suh from making friends around the league, but that might be alright with him.

“I don’t think I’ll ever be able to have a friend as a quarterback, especially one I see twice a year,” Suh said, via USA Today. “But without question, off the field, he’s good people, and I definitely enjoyed being around him.”

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who falls in the quarterbacks Suh sees twice a year category, said that Suh should be a little bit more open-minded.

“I think he needs to expand his mind a little bit, kind of branch out,” Rodgers said. “Does that mean that he’s not buddies with Matt (Stafford)? Or Shaun (Hill)? Or Kellen (Moore)?”

The quarterbacks Rodgers listed are the Lions passers. In case you  didn’t get the dry-humor Rodgers added: “I’m being sarcastic.”

To be fair, quarterbacks are probably not a big fan of Suh either. I imagine it would be hard for quarterbacks to befriend someone who is consistently trying to take their head off or kick them below the belt.
