PLAYERS: Ndamukong Suh
TEAMS: Detroit Lions

Via The Other Paper:

If you ask Detroit Lions players what they think is funny — 300-pound comedian Louie Anderson in a Speedo, belly-flopping into a pool might pop into their minds. The thought of their own 6'4", 307-pound defensive end, Ndamukong Suh, leaping off a high dive ... not so much.

Suh should never have signed up to compete on "Celebrity Diving", this according to several of Suh's Lions teammates, who told TMZ the decision is shockingly irresponsible.

Suh — who's in the middle of a 5-year, $68 million contract with the Lions — recently joined the cast of the ABC reality show.  Suh, who will be joining other celebrities like Anderson, Katherine Webb (Uh, she's everywhere) and former NBA great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in launching their bodies off a diving platform.

TMZ spoke with several of Suh's teammates who all feel that he's making huge mistake.

"One source told the gossip site, 'We need him on the field and if he gets hurt during the offseason doing wild stunts ... it would be bad and it ain't worth it. He's too valuable to the team.' "

  • Maybe he can kick someone in the nut sac or stomp on an arm while diving. Could be entertaining.
  • "I'm Dumb Again" Suh! One of the lowest self esteemed athletes in the NFL. I hope this guy can eventually pull it together.
