Ndamukong Suh is still one of the game's most recognizable young stars, and he's eager to bounce back with a big season.
Suh took the NFL a bit by storm as a rookie in 2010, finishing the season with 10 sacks and anchoring a Detroit defensive line that looked like it had the potential to be among the league's best. Last year, he had only four sacks, and he made as much news for his style of play as for his production.
Suh requested a meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to discuss his play after he drew several penalties and fines. Then on Thanksgiving, he stomped at Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith and was suspended for two games.
Now Suh is talking about a renewed focus.

I hate summer.
Hear me out. Baseball is fine and the Summer Olympics are keeping my interests, but I really miss fall and winter sports.
I watched reruns of games I knew the ending to. I have picked my fantasy lineup. I have been keeping up with offseason news in anticipation for the season to arrive.
Unfortunately, I’m a Saints fan.
It’s been a rough summer.
