Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who we’ve come to know as a shit well, among other things, is about to be a free agent. He’s the top free agent on the market, according to most people.
The Lions are trying to re-sign him, but most assume that isn’t going to happen because, well, they’re the Detroit Lions. So people are wildly speculating about where Suh might end up.
This guy thinks the Green Bay Packers are the best fit.
That’s former Washington linebacker LaVar Arrington, who’s currently a talking head on the NFL Network. Here’s what he had to say.
“A lot of times, players that leave their team feel disrespected and that they weren’t treated correctly, and they tend to stay in the division. I’m looking at Green Bay,” Arrington said. “I think that would be a great fit.
“They’re going to get B.J. Raji back, so now you’re looking at B.J. Raji and Ndamukong Suh, and then you got those guys on the outside — more specifically, you have Julius Peppers, you got Clay Matthews … .
“You shore up the center of that defensive front, and that might have been one of the pieces that they were truly missing on that team this past season.”
We’ll put aside our distaste for Suh as a human being momentarily to say that he’s a very good player. Signing a guy like that would make sense for the Packers, since 2014’s starting nose tackle, Letroy Guion, got arrested just last week.
And if Suh does indeed feel disrespected by the Lions and wants to stay in the division, where else is he going to go? Chicago or Minnesota?
Hahaha… not if he cares about winning in the least bit.
There are so many more reasons this idea and Arrington’s statement don’t make any sense though.
Considering the kind of guy Suh is, my bet is he really doesn’t care about winning. He’s going to take the most lucrative deal, regardless of who offers it (and we’re sure the Packers won’t be offering it).
There have been rumors about the New York Giants, but it seems to me this guy belongs on the Oakland Raiders. They’ve really lost their scumbag aura. Suh could bring that back all by himself.
Suh has stated that he wants to play in Seattle, if so, fuck it. We’ll find someone this year. Not sold on Datone Jones, Letroy Guion may be unemployed, and BJ Raji? who knows? It does appear that another solid D lineman is needed for the Packers next year.
He’d have to take a huge paycut in Seattle w their mondo signing of beast and Russ Wilson asking for bux
Not just a solid D lineman, but a couple of nasty inside backers.
The Packers will never overpay for talent they did not develop, especially one with a personality disorder.
No way this is even possible with the money the Pack has to shell out to its own players this year and next.
Seattle? Well id say no way since they too have signing issues this and next off season, however, they like to cheat so I wouldnt put anything past them.
You can never say never, however in this case you can almost say no way is Suh going to be in green and gold. If he did sign The equipment staff should never allow Suh to wear cleats except on game day.
This won’t happen. Suh will likely command too much money. And if he does not, it is because the rest of the league shies away from him given his personality defects and inconsistency as a player. That in turn suggests why Thompson should not consider him except at a ridiculous bargain rate that is simply so unrealistic as to be fantastical.
if suh wants to get back at Detroit, that might make the difference. money may be second, so a ring might entice him more. just a thought. . .
cute theory… but come on this is the nfl… guys dont take paycuts for anything
Hehe them negroes
Not a chance.
LaVar has taken a few too many shots to the head. And I wouldn’t want that piece of shit in GB if he were Jim Thorpe.
LOL. what if he were warren sapp????
What a terrible biased article. This is poor journalism even on junior college standards.
I like it. In fact I think it would be a very smart move by the packers. Dominant defensive linemen are hard to come by. Look at how much better JJ Watt makes the Texans defense look, they really dont have any other studs on that defense. (not counting Cushing since he is hurt half the time) The way I look at it, how much more are you going to squeeze out of Peppers? If you cut him, you gain some very valuable space that can be used to sign Suh. Also some space will be freed up by the presumed cuts of Hawk and Jones. I am not worried about the cap in a few years because the salary cap is supposed to go up quite a bit. Suh may be willing to do a shorter term contract with more guaranteed money and a larger signing bonus so he can hit the market for one more megadeal once the salary cap hits the 150 million mark in a few years like it is supposed to. People on here are always talking about getting a player with a mean streak in them, well, this is the guy. Championship defenses start up front, good defensive linemen can make linebackers look better by tying up blockers and allowing linebackers to flow to the ball.
