Ndamukong Suh's lack of friendships with quarterbacks not shocking

Ndamukong Suh, the Lions defensive tackle who would like to be known for his ferocious, effective play, but is likely to be more recognized for his kicking of Matt Schaub's junk, is not friends with a lot of NFL quarterbacks.

Ndamukong Suh, the Lions defensive tackle who would like to be known for his ferocious, effective play, but is likely to be more recognized for his kicking of Matt Schaub's junk, is not friends with a lot of NFL quarterbacks.

Not surprising, given his passion for hurting them physically. But this past offseason, Suh spent some time with Aaron Rodgers at a youth football camp, where the two appeared to get along well.

So, what's the deal, Suh? Losing that edge? You and Rodgers booking a tandem bicycle for the weekend as the Lions head to Green Bay in Week 5?

For now, Suh and Rodgers' friendship will have to take the form of fleeting glances and grudging respect, until next offseason, when Suh isn't trying to break one of Rodgers' teammate's skulls.
