NFL Math: Ndamukong Suh > (Vernon Gholston + Aaron Maybin)*5

The New York Jets got it wrong with Vernon Gholston, the Buffalo Bills got it wrong with Aaron Maybin and the Detroit Lions got it very right with Ndamukong Suh. Both Gholston and Maybin have been released by their original teams prior to the end of their rookie contracts despite lofty draft positions.

As if we needed more proof that Ndamukong Suh is once in a generation beast, Pro Football Focus provided the following via twitter:

In 5 combined seasons Vernon Gholston and Aaron Maybin have totaled 962 snaps. Ndamukong Suh played 995 as a rookie.

Ndamukong Suh. Not a bust.

If all goes according to plan, Suh will play fewer snaps this season than last thanks to the addition of Nick Fairley. Suh was among the snap leaders last year and the Lions would surely like to get him a few more breathers throughout the game.
