Suh, Goodell Enjoy Meeting

Publish date:

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh requested a meeting during his by week with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, and both men agree that Suh will be able to make adjustments to his style of play that fit what the league expects. Suh has racked up $42,500 in fines since he joined the league in '09, but he feels more comfortable with what is expected of him.

"I have gained a better understanding how I need to continue to play the game to help my team win," Suh said in a statement. "I look forward to the rest of the season and doing everything we can to bring the Lombardi Trophy to Detroit."

Goodell all but echoed those feelings in his own statement.

"Ndamukong plays the game with great skill and passion and is a major reason for the Lions' success this year," Goodell said. "In the course of our dialogue today, we reviewed video showing that Ndamukong has clearly made the adjustments to play consistently within the rules so that he can continue to help the team. We commend Ndamukong's leadership in taking the initiative to schedule today's meeting."
