Ndamukong Suh On Bounties: 'We Don't Allow That'

Ndamukong Suh served as the grand marshal of NASCAR's race in Phoenix today. While there, he hung out with fellow Subway spokesman Carl Edwards and caught up with Chris Myers from FOX. He also caught up with SB Nation's Jeff Gluck, who asked him about the bounty program controversy the New Orleans Saints are currently dealing with. Suh had this to say:

"Personally, I don't take part in those things," Suh said Sunday at Phoenix International Raceway, where he is grand marshal for NASCAR's Subway Fresh Fit 500. "Knowing my teammates and knowing my coaches, we don't allow that."

Suh also said that he expects Roger Goodell to deal with the situation "with a stiff hand as he has in the past." Suh hopes Goodell will make an example out of this situation in order for the rest of the league to learn from these mistakes. Here's more from Suh:

"For me personally and I know my teammates, we don't want to put anybody out," he said. "I would never want anybody to target me and take me out, so why would I do it to anybody else?"

I'm sure some out there would disagree with that notion given Suh's own history, but it's good to hear the Lions aren't doing anything like this. Safety Chris Harris also confirmed that nothing of this sort took place in Detroit during 2011, his one season with the team.
