Suh apparently requested the meeting with Goodell discuss his perception as a “dirty player.” The 24-year-old defensive tackle believes that he has been playing well within the NFL’s rules.
“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 following the meeting. Suh, however, maintains he will still play aggressively, he told The Detroit News, “I’m the type of person who does not like to repeat his mistakes.”
The powerful defensive tackle has been fined three times over the past two seasons for his hard hits on quarterbacks. He has most recently garnered attention for his alleged taunting of Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan while he was down injured.
