Grant Says Suh's Suspension Should Be Longer

Packers running back Ryan Grant spoke out on the suspension for the Detroit Lions defensive lineman on a Milwaukee sports talk radio show.

Courtesy of SportsRadioInterviews.com, we have the transcript of running back Ryan Grant's recent interview with Milwaukee radio station WSSP.

The attention-grabbing statement Grant made involves the length of the suspension for Detroit Lions defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh, who stomped on Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith during last week's Thanksgiving Day game.

Here's what Grant had to say:

“I think that’s old news for us, but I don’t know, I sort of thought it was going to be a little bit longer. But at the end of the day, do I think it needs to be longer? Yeah, I do. I think it’s absurd. It was about as overboard as you can get what he did; it’s just not football. Can’t have that. It was ridiculous, and it’s not something you want to see regardless. I’m not a fan of the apology, I’m not a fan of what he said. Anybody in hindsight can say all that, but we’re talking about something that’s not exactly a first occurrence. There have been issues, there have been talks and communication with the commissioner and across the board. But like I said, we’re moving on, we ain’t focusing on all that, we’ve got our own stuff to worry about.”

Gotta agree with Grant on this one. No excuse for Suh's behavior and lack of empathy for stomping EDS in the Thanksgiving game.

Stay classy Lions and make sure to watch from the couch as GBP attempts the repeat as Super Bowl champs.
