Former NFL All-Pro defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh is one of the most outspoken players on and off the field.
Recently, he revealed that he intends to sign with a team this season, but as a veteran, he has “no intention” of participating in preseason training camp. Those are the kinds of demands you can make when you have had a career as productive as Suh.
This week, Suh appeared on the NFL Network’s Total Access, and by the sounds of it, he won’t be signing with the New York Jets if given the chance.
Suh said that he’s “absolutely not” buying the Super Bowl hype around the Jets after their trade for mercurial quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Suh, who played for years against Rodgers as a member of the NFC North’s Detroit Lions, unfavorably compared him to his former teammate, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady.
“When Tom Brady came in, and the things that he did that offseason to create that chemistry, that comradery, bringing that group together especially during a COVID period of time. Like I don’t know if Aaron Rodgers has that chemistry and that way to do those different things,” Suh said.
“Tom got all the offensive guys together…I gotta see that offseason chemistry, especially as we get closer to camp.”
Rodgers did not immediately respond to Suh’s comments. But it should make for an appetizing affair if the duo ever meet on the field this season.
