It’s obvious what defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh brings to the table in terms of on field production.
He’s four-time first-team All Pro and one of the most dominant defensive tackles in the NFL today. But while all that steals the headlines, what may fly under the radar is the way he interacts and conducts himself with his teammates, Finsiders reports.
Through several interviews with The Finsiders, multiple players have expressed how impressed they are with Miami’s marquee free agent signing of the spring just a few months into Suh’s tenure in aqua.
Linebacker Jelani Jenkins is excited about what Suh brings to the defense because of the kind of attention the All-Pro defensive tackle demands from the offense.
“Just overall, he’s an animal,” said Jenkins. “Besides his athletic ability and just being able to take on double teams and free everybody else up, he’s got swag, he’s a presence. People are going to look out for him and when they’re looking out for him, they’re not looking out for other people. Just his whole demeanor and what it brings to the defense, we’re going to be tough to run against, pass against and we’re going to have a whole attitude to us.
Suh also has been a big help to young players on the defense according to linebacker Chris McCain. The 2nd year pro says Suh’s has been a great veteran mind for younger players to learn from, and that he’s teaching unselfishness.
“He’s not hard to talk to at all, he’s very helpful, said McCain. “If he feels like someone can make a play, he’s more willing to put somebody else in a better position than he’s thinking about himself. If I’m over there rushing, he’ll tell me ‘go ahead and do your go-to move, I got your back if you don’t make it.’ He’s not selfish, he’s more helpful than anything man and it’s just fun being able to talk to him.”
