Suh said that the image that he has as a player started with the stomping of Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith two years ago on Thanksgiving, and price per head sportsbooks were happy to learn that he wants to change his image.
“It obviously tainted me and given me a bad rep, and well deserved in that instance,” Suh said. “But I don’t think one moment in somebody’s life is going to define them. I vowed, not only to myself personally but my family and to my teammates and coaches, not to have that happen again and not have situations like that that is going to hurt them or make them feel that they couldn’t be proud of me or want me as a teammate.
“That’s one thing that I just hope and wish people have the opportunity and take the light to be unbiased and really kind of take a look at my track record and not define me by one instance and one mistake in life that I’ve had.”
And price per head sportsbooks saw that Suh has had more than the incident with Dietrich-Smith. He was fined many times for hitting quarterbacks, which include a low block to Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan this season in Week 1, earning him a $100,000 fine, and on Thanksgiving 2012 a perceived kick to the groin of the Houston Texans’ Matt Schaub.
Price per head sportsbooks know that in his career, the player met twice with the league about his actions, and this season was fined three times – for the hit on Sullivan, a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden that wasn’t penalized, and a throat slash gesture last month against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
But Suh believes that he matured as a player, and pay per head services certainly hope that he did.
“I think I’ve definitely grown up quite a bit,” Suh said. “Just understanding that if you’re not growing up, you’re just moving backwards, and I’m a person that I always want to grow and learn and not be the smartest person in the room, because when you’re not the smartest person in the room, you’re always learning things.

“I’m a learner. That’s how I got to where I am right now is learning from other players and other people. A great guy who is no longer in the league right now who is retired, Kyle Vanden Bosch, I learned a lot from him and I owe him a lot for my success in the NFL.”
