New Bucs defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will arrive in Tampa Bay soon, but his reputation as a dirty player proceeds him.Not that Bucs coach Bruce Arians cares (see below).Here’s a look at the 10 dirtiest plays of Suh’s nine-year NFL career: In his rookie season, Suh was incorrectly penalized for a horse-collar tackle on Cowboys running back Marion Barber. As you can see from the video, he clearly brought Barber down by pulling his dreadlocks.""I went up to him to apologize because I’m not a dirty player," Suh told the Detroit News after the game. “He said, ‘No worries. It’s the name of the game.’” This 2017 incident in Baltimore was reminiscent of Darth Vader’s what-have-you-done-with-those-plans choke in Star Wars: Episode IV. In Suh’s defense, this play in the 2018 regular-season game of the year didn’t even draw a flag. This one makes the list not so much for the offense but for the offended. Easy on Fitz-Magic this year (Aug. 16, Tampa), big guy. This 2014 stunt earned Suh a one-game suspension, which he unsuccessfully appealed by suggesting the extreme cold in Green Bay caused him to lose feeling in his foot and mistake Rodgers’ ankle for the Lambeau Field turf. Happy Thanksgiving, 2012. Suh had a logical explanation for his kick to Schaub’s nether regions: “I was being dragged to the ground, and my foot inadvertently hit the man,” Suh told reporters, according to WXYT-FM in Detroit .Schaub wasn’t buying it, but the coach of the Lions’ next opponent didn’t see a problem. ""I don’t think he’s a dirty player. I’d love to have him on my team. I like the way he plays. He plays aggressive, hard and fast and physical. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. That’s kind of why they call it football.”The coach? Then-Indianapolis Colts interim head coach and current Bucs head coach Bruce Arians. It’s awfully hard to engender sympathy for Jay Cutler, but Suh certainly did his part. (Stay tuned). “I don’t like any quarterbacks,” Suh once told the Chicago-Sun Times, “but (Cutler) was one guy definitely I had respect for because he took hits and never cried, never complained.” Another Suh-on-Cutler hit (” Suh rips Jay Cutler’s helmet off ”) didn’t make the list because it was starting to get redundant. Suh’s career got off to a dirty and expensive start when this cheap shot in his third preseason game cost him $7,500. He went by the name Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving 2011 — what is it about Turkey Day that prompts such hostility? — but starting Tuesday Suh can just call him teammate. Here’s Eduardo A.
