Detroit Lions Ndamukong Suh goes Hollywood, to appear on ABC's 'Celebrity Diving'

So no huge Lions’ off-season news until now. TMZ broke the story on Monday that defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will compete in ABC’s newest reality show, “Celebrity Diving.”

That’s not a misprint, it’s diving not driving.


The story is complete with a photo of Suh wearing blue plaid shorts walking around a pool with the Hollywood Hills in the background and bikini-clad Katherine Webb on his left. 

Looks like Miss Alabama, who is also the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, is cashing in on her celebrity status such as it is.

 Not sure if this will conflict with Suh’s trip to the Pro Bowl. He made the roster as an alternate. The game is Sunday night in Hawaii.

  TMZ reports: “Ndamukong Suh is also a pretty shocking addition to the cast — considering he's in the middle of a huge contract and NFL coaches don't usually love it when a star player risks his health by jumping off a high dive.
“Then again, Suh has an image problem — people think he's a jerk — and he could use the show to convince fans that he's not really the monster he appears to be on the field.’’

 Again, those were TMZ’s words.

 Is there a belly-flopping clause in his contract? He’ll make $11.15 million in 2013.

 Other contestants include Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Keshia Knight-Pulliam, Nicole Eggert (Summer Quinn from Baywatch), comedian Louis Anderson and other publicity-starved lesser-knowns.

 No word on if Brent Musburger will call the play by play.

The only way I'd watch that is if it was happening in the middle of the Pacific ocean, and a 1000 pound cinder block was part of Suh's mandatory equipment.
