Detroit Lions star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been granted a meeting with the NFL Tuesday in New York to discuss the fines and penalties he has received from the league this year, according to Fox Sports. Suh reportedly requested the meeting himself.
“To me, it’s just an opportunity to go out there and have good dialogue and see what I can take from that meeting,” Suh told reporters after the Lions’ 45-10 victory over the Denver Broncos yesterday.
“If it’s nothing, then it’s nothing. If it’s something good, then it’s something good.”
The 6’4”, 307 pound defensive stopper will reportedly ask for more clarity from the league on why he has been fined as frequently as he has this season. He will also attempt to convince league officials why he believes he shouldn’t be receiving such penalties at all, Fox reports.
Suh, 24, has been one of the best defensive linemen in the game since entering the league in 2010. Last season he recorded 66 tackles and 10 sacks en route to being named the NFL’s Rookie of the Year. So far this season Suh has collected 24 tackles and three sacks.
His physical style of play, however, has not come without controversy. Suh reportedly has been levied three personal fouls through eight games this season, and was most notably fined $20,000 by the league for a pre-season hit on Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.
