Report: Ndamukong Suh invited to meeting at league offices


NFL Vice President of Operations Merton Hanks admitted this week that the hit on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden that drew a $31,500 fine for Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh $31,500 was not an “egregious” offense.

Hanks said part of the reason for the fine on a hit that wasn’t penalized was because Suh’s been a repeat offender and wanted him to “course correct” his on-field behavior. Hanks said it was a violation and that Suh’s past actions alone didn’t determine his decision. It’s not the only way the league is trying to influence Suh.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported Sunday that Suh has been invited to the league’s offices to discuss the fine and the other actions the league has taken issue with this season. It’s the second time Suh has been asked to take part in such a meeting. Should this visit come during the Lions’ bye in Week Nine, it would be at just about the same time of the year as his previous visit in 2011.

    Funny that Merton Hanks dishes out punishment for hard hits. Hanks never delivered one as a player.

    I wonder if Hanks has already decided today’s fine? Why wait for the game to start.

    Didn’t see hit. Don’t like Suh. But… this is why the league is such a joke…

    Suh just hit hank and have him fine you, he’s going to fine you the rest of the season anyway at least get a little of enjoyment out of it

    Suh has nothing to worry about. The team will NEVER EVER punish him for his behavior no matter what and the League is afraid to suspend him short of taking someone’s eye out with his cleats.

    You admit he didn’t do anything wrong but you fine him anyway, Pathetic!

    hopefully he brings some representation with him because he is getting screwed. He has certainly made mistakes but at this point they are fining him for things he didn’t even do wrong

    A few days later…”Suh fined 50k for refusing to meet with Merton Hanks”

    Hanks should fine himself for that ridiculous celebration he used to do…

    I wonder if he does that dumb chicken-neck dance in his office after he hands out fines…

    Suh should just “circle the wagons” from now on. Don’t meet with them and certainly do not talk to the media about anything.
