Ndamukong Suh on future in Detroit: 'I would love to be here'

New, 1 comment

Lions DT Ndamukong Suh has had a turbulent year, to say the least, but he expressed his desire to stay in Detroit despite a tweet from his sister possibly stating otherwise.

On Thursday, Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh tried to separate himself from comments made by his sister five days earlier. In responding to questions about Ngum Suh's attention-grabbing tweet from last Saturday, Ndamukong professed his love for Detroit to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press:

"I would love to be here. This city is great to me, it continues to be great to me. The people are great people and I love playing here, that's why I wear the jersey."

Suh also wanted to make sure that people are aware that he has his own personal Twitter account, and that what his sister tweets can certainly be her own opinions and independent thoughts:

"What my sister tweets is what she tweets. It has nothing to do with me. That's her personal account. That's why her name's on it. I have my personal account that says verified, it says my name on it."

Suh seemingly isn't as beloved as he was a few years ago, when he stormed onto the scene as a rookie and racked up 65 tackles, 10 sacks and two defensive touchdowns. Of course, a stomping incident on the field and numerous violations away from it will do that. Still, the third-year defender remains productive. That was especially evident in Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, in which Suh had two tackles for a loss and batted down a crucial third-down pass late in the game.
