Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh doesn’t have the best reputation among his opponents, but there was no reason to believe he wasn’t popular in his won locker room. According to Heath Evans, the former NFL fullback turned FOX analyst, three Lions players told him he was a issue in the locker room.
“The consistent message that came out of there is that Suh was uncontrollable and that he would constantly do things to kind of show his power over Jim Schwartz, whether it was team meetings, showing up late, or whatever it may be,” Evans told of 105.1 FM, via the Detroit Free Press. “When you don’t put players in line, I don’t care how great they are.”
“The bottom line is he would just do things, whether it was showing up for a meeting late, or little different antics to kind of let the team know … it was more or less Suh just trying to show his dominance, his power,” Evans said. “That he was basically untouchable and he could basically do what he wanted to do.”
