Miami Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh posted an image on Instagram Sunday night in reference to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport calling him out over comments he allegedly made to his teammates.
According to Rapoport, Suh met with the rest of the Miami defense on Monday and allegedly told his teammates that “he was better than most of them.”
“I run this defense, I’m going to be here for the next five years, there is no guarantee any of you will be as well,” Suh reportedly said. “Only a handful of guys are good enough to play with me right now.”
“My understanding is the room was split,” Rapoport reported. “Some saw this as the kind of address a leader would give. Others, just something they’ve never heard before.”
Defensive end Olivier Vernon told the Miami Herald the report was “not at all accurate.”
“It’s a team thing, and I ain’t going to discuss it, but that ain’t accurate at all,” Vernon said. “Everybody on this team could care less what people say outside. Really, I don’t care.”
Suh later posted an image on Instragram with the hashtag “#IanRapoport.”
Ndamukong Suh is a player who was criticized earlier this year for not following defensive assignments and has been involved in many shady situations on and off the field. Ian Rapoport, on the other hand, is a well respected NFL reporter.
