11:07 AM ET 02.01 | Heath Evans, a former NFL fullback now working as an analyst for Fox's NFL coverage, says three unnamed Lions last fall told him stories of Ndamukong Suh trying to establish dominance in the locker room, even over coach Jim Schwartz, who was fired late last month after a disappointing 7-9 season. "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 Matt Dery of 105.1 FM in Detroit. "When you don't put players in line, I don't care how great they are."

Coming out of college, Suh seemed like a nice, well-spoken young man. He donated a lot of money from his first contract before ever setting foot on the field. Seemed like a great guy.

Then we have Suh the NFL player. What the hell happened?

No way does this guy make it to old age without several arrests and a Behind The Music-style meltdown.

He'll either wind up in prison or sleeping under bridges--probably both.

Addition by subtraction. They would be foolish to pick up the last year of that contract or to sign him long term.

Not really. These same problems, in practice with his own team mates were going on at Nebraska according to players on that team. He has some issues that is for sure.

I'm amazed he was drafted so high...

I was not aware of that. Thanks for the info.

Talent. And every team thinks they can "fix" a guy coming out of college.

And somebody will again in FA. I guarantee it. Dan Snyder comes to mind, as does Oakland and Miami.

Thug-Daddy N-Suh is uncontrollable on the field, too.

The Raiders have a history of trading for malcontents...

Not surprised. But as long as Suh keeps pressuring QBs and hitting RBs in the backfield he'll get away with his antics.

February 1, 2014  12:37 PM ET

Suh is sort of a dick, no doubt. Maybe a huge dick if he even goes after his own coach.

But if my favorite team wanted to sign him I would be A-ok with that.

Sometimes a headline really does not surprise you. Case in point!!

I'm surprised the coach put up with that BS.

That is probably why they fired him...
