Don’t expect the Cleveland Browns to join the chorus about Ndamukong Suh being the NFL’s most feared player.

Several Browns shrugged at the thought of Suh being “feared.” Though he received three votes from the Browns, more than three said Suh’s extracurriculars -- penalties, plays that lead to fines -- actually take away from his play.

The Browns treated the word “feared” almost equal to respect.

That’s why guys like Patrick Willis of San Francisco received three votes, J.J. Watt of Houston two and Troy Polamalu and Calvin Johnson one each.

Many Browns, too, had to be prodded into answers.

When the word “feared” was mentioned to them, they bristled and said they didn’t fear anyone.

Upon further questioning, though, they were able to come up with names.
