Suh met with Goodell last month to try to better understand what the league is looking for regarding legal hits and player safety. "I'm not really sure what the commissioner is going to say," he said Tuesday. "I'm not his right-hand man. I think he's a very fair and honest person and hopefully he continues to be that way, and we'll see what happens."

I like to punish running backs for them trying to make plays on my defense," he said in his "First Take" interview. "Whether it's dirty or aggressive or whatever that may be, we're going to continue to play that way and make sure we stand up and make sure teams don't run over us."
