Ndamukong Suh says he’s not bothered by the Lions declining HBO’s Hard Knocks, and says he’s actually glad the Lions declined the offer to raise their team profile on the popular cable show.
Suh stated to CBS Sports that he prefers a focused environment free of distractions.
“I don’t know if we’d be a good fit. I think it would be great for the city to see what we’re doing and so forth, but, in my personal opinion, I don’t really like the limelight … especially when I’m in a workout,” Suh said on CBSSports.com podcast. “That’s probably one of the most annoying things that you sometimes have to encounter. I’m actually kinda glad we (declined to offer), because I’d like to keep nice and quiet, keep everything in-house, then we’ll show what we’ve got on that football when we get out there that first game.”
Suh’s offseason has been anything but quiet. He’s also signed endorsement deals with Dick’s Sporting Goods and Omaha Steaks. Nike added Suh to its roster following his senior season at Nebraska.
