In an effort to soften the inevitable punishment he will receive from the NFL for his stomp of a Packers player on Thanksgiving, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh called NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to apologize, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
My personal opinion is that this gesture is too little, too late. Even if Suh is genuinely sorry for what happened, waiting until three days after the incident occurred to apologize makes it seem like damage control more than anything. The same goes for his statement on Friday about the incident.
I suppose a gesture like this can't hurt Suh's chances of avoiding a stiff punishment for the Thanksgiving incident, but I just have a tough time believing it will make much of a difference in the end.
