ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Ndamukong Suh has his fair share of detractors. For the first time, he spoke out against one of his loudest.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Warren Sapp, who now works as an analyst at the NFL Network is consistently critical of Suh's actions and play.
Suh hasn't been oblivious to the harsh words, and has a solution to the constant questioning.
"I don't know exactly what's going on in his head," Suh said.
The Lions third-year defensive tackle said he welcomes Sapp to offer constructive criticism, in order to keep improving.
"To me, you can be a fan and just criticize me or you can be a great person who someone who can be a legend and possibly in the Hall of Fame and teach me something," he said.
Suh said he is still young in the league, and still willing to learn. He was open to discuss how he would welcome advice from Sapp, but didn't address how a potential meeting or interaction would occur.
"You can criticize because you've been in that same position. You've gone through those things, so he's valid to criticize, but at the same time, you don't just criticize and not do anything or say anything," Suh said.
So what's next?
"I don't know. I really don't care. And to be honest with you, what's in front of me right now is Chicago. I've got to take care of Chicago."
