Clinton Portis says he would’ve choked out Ndamukong Suh

The NFL announced on Monday that Dolphins defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh would not face disciplinary action after knocking off Redskins running back Alfred Morris’s helmet with his knee during Sunday’s game.

While “there was contact between the players,” according to NFL spokesman Michael Signora, “Suh’s action was not deemed a kick.”

Morris appeared to have a few words for Suh as he stood up, but then went about his business. Former Redskins running back Clinton Portis said he would’ve responded a little differently.

“I just would love to be in that situation,” Portis said during his Monday appearance on ESPN 980’s The Drive With Cooley and Czabe. “Why didn’t guys play that way when I was on the field? I wish a guy would have. I would have dove at the back of Suh’s knees so quick and got up and just probably choked him out. I definitely wouldn’t have let him get away with that. But again, Alfred Morris is a different guy than myself.”

If Morris were more like Portis, Matt Jones might be looking forward to his first career start on Sunday against the Rams.

“Guys give this facade of being tough and, ‘Oh man, I’m the man and don’t try me,’ and you know, they’re really not,” Portis said. “I don’t think Suh is, you know, that tough of a player. I think he’s a great player though.”
