Ndamukong Suh Fined Again, This Time For Throat Slash Gesture Banned In 1999

By Ashley Dunkak

DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) – Ndamukong Suh made sure to courteously set down Green Bay quarterback Matt Flynn after sacking Flynn for a safety on Thanksgiving. Apparently Suh forgot to be so careful the previous week at Tampa Bay.

Suh got hit with yet another fine, this one $7,875 for a throat-slashing gesture after making a tackle for loss against the Bucs. The gesture has been prohibited by the NFL since 1999, when one general manager told the New York Times it was “an ugly, violent thing to see.”

The fine is Suh’s third of the season. His first came in Week 1, when he illegally blocked Minnesota Vikings center John Sullivan, an act for which he got docked a whopping $100,000. Suh’s second fine came after Week 6, when he got hit with a bill of $31,500 for roughing Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden.

While an amount below $8,000 is a drop in the bucket for Suh, the gesture certainly does not help his bad boy image.
