Does Ndamukong Suh put aside, like, 10 percent of all of his game checks in order to pay off all the fines he receives from the league? He must, right?
Late yesterday, the Lions defensive tackle was fined yet again by the league. This time, they handed him a $31,500 fine for a hit that he made on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden. Suh lowered his head into Weeden while making the hit, which prompted the league to dock some of his pay from Sunday.
"We're going to aggressively enforce player safety fouls," NFL vice president of officiating Dean Blandino told the NFL Network on Wednesday. "When I looked at the play, I felt that he did make contact with the forehead/hairline. Lowered the head and made contact with the forehead/hairline. Not to the head or neck, but the rule does prohibit that contact to the body."
If you're keeping count at home, this is now the second time that Suh has been fined this season through just six games. Suh was also fined $100,000 back in early September for an illegal hit that he made after an interception. How long is it going to be before he's just out there playing for free?!
