Lions pass-rusher Ndamukong Suh confirmed in May that his decision to stay away had nothing to do with his contract.
Besides, Suh’s personal strength coach Mike Barwis told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport that Detroit’s quarterback killer is poised to hit camp as a “physical specimen, ” Marc Sessler of NFL.com reports.
“Ndamukong is a stud,” said Barwis, the star of Discovery Channel’s “American Muscle,” which debuts Wednesday. “… He trains very, very hard. Guys finish up the workouts, and he’s the guy in there who stays extra to condition beyond what’s demanded of him, and these workouts are pretty hellacious. A guy like that is a pretty unique guy. … He knows what he has to do to be ready, and I think he’s proven that every year he’s been ready.”
“I think with this day and age, and with technology and the ability to do anything from anywhere in this world, it’s not that big of a deal because we made great adjustments,” said Suh.
“And even being a leader, we didn’t pick our unity counsels and our captains as of yet, but our unity counsels wasn’t even picked until, I believe, right before our minicamps, so it’s still very open. Our biggest part of the year for us, outside of OTAs and minicamps, is (training) camp. So that’s what we’re getting ready to go in to.”
