Ndamukong Suh Reportedly Told Defensive Teammates that Most of Them Weren't Good Enough to Play


Ndamukong Suh: refreshingly honest to teammates, and a leader, or a problem in the locker room? According to a report on NFL Network from Ian Rapoport this morning, Suh gave an interesting speech to defensive teammates last week.

"“I’m told he told them: ‘I run this defense, I’m going to be here for the next five years, there is no guarantee any of you will be as well. Only a handful of guys are good enough to play with me right now,'” Rapoport said. “He also said the schemes were not good enough, the techniques were not enough and everyone needed to be better, he said ‘follow me.'”"

Suh just signed the huge free agent deal this offseason, so the team is certainly paying him to be better than everyone else and lead. I’m just not sure that needs to be explicitly stated if this is true.
