Cleveland Browns linebacker Jabaal Sheard believes that Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh does not need to rely on dirty play.
Cleveland Browns linebacker Jabaal Sheard has said that he has no respect for Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh's "dirty" play.
The 26-year-old has been fined almost $350,000 (£220,000) since being drafted in 2010, including a record $100,000 (£62,700) fine for a low block on Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan last month.
Sheard told the Cleveland Plain Dealer: "I just watch the highlights y'all put on ESPN with him hurting somebody. It's crazy. It's the league, so guys play hard.
"I respect how hard he plays, but I'm not a dirty player, so I don't care for it. There are offensive linemen that play like that. There are a few guys that play that way.
"I don't know, man, I don't respect it. I don't like it. He's a great player, he's a dominant player. I don't think he needs to do all the dirty stuff."
The Browns host the Lions later today.
