Ndamukong Suh got to do something most NFL players can only dream about: Welcoming a music legend.
The Lions star defensive tackle got on stage at Comerica Park and introduced Kid Rock before a packed house. Suh had just played in the Lions' 34-3 beat-down of the Bengals at Ford Field, before going across the street for the concert.
"It was a lot of fun," Suh told Booth Newspapers. "I had a blast out there. I'm a very lucky guy; I got to introduce him -– something that I never had an opportunity to ever do before. Speaking in front of a crowd like that =– 40,000 on a Saturday night in Detroit -– (there's) probably nothing better than that. I can see why he still does it. The thrill, the rush that you get on that stage is amazing."
The former Nebraska star lived up to the hype as a rookie. Suh was the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2010, earning a Pro Bowl berth despite playing for the bad-luck Lions. Ndamukong had 66 tackles and 10 sacks with an interception.
