Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh was a headache in the locker room last season, according to Fox Analyst Heath Evans. Evans went onto the radio to share his insight on the situation:
“The consistent message that came out of there is that Suh was uncontrollable and that he would constantly do things to kind of show his power over Jim Schwartz, whether it was team meetings, showing up late, or whatever it may be,” Evans told of 105.1 FM, via the Detroit Free Press. “When you don’t put players in line, I don’t care how great they are.” – Pro Football Talk
New head coach Jim Caldwell might have a challenge on his hands. He will have to control his locker room as well as get his offense to play up to it’s potential. It sounds like Caldwell will get his disciplinary skills tested when he has to deal with one of the Lions star players on defense.
