ALLEN PARK, Mich. Discount Jordan 4 Motorsport . -- Ndamukong Suh went to the front of the line to lead the way. And when it wasnt Suhs turn, he had words of encouragement -- which included a playful jab -- for his fellow defensive linemen. "OK, fat boy!" Suh screamed at Nick Fairley as the beefy tackle picked up and put down tennis balls as he sprinted around the path of a figure eight. "I see you, Zig!" Suh later shouted at rookie Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah. In Suhs first three seasons, the defensive tackle deferred leadership responsibilities to Kyle Vanden Bosch, Corey Williams and Cliff Avril. Those three veterans are gone, leaving Suh with a chance to lead, even if its just his group for now. Defensive end Willie Young has seen Suh take advantage of the opportunity during this weeks minicamp. "Hes definitely stepped it up," Young said Wednesday. "His actions say a lot." Suh shrugged off the changes others are seeing from him this week. "Im just being me," he said in an interview with The Associated Press. "We had senior leadership with guys who earned their place in the league and I only spoke up when I felt like I needed to. The same thing happened at Nebraska, where it wasnt until my junior or senior years that I got more vocal." Unlike Cornhuskers coach Bo Pelini, who encouraged Suh to be a leader of the team and face of the program, Lions coach Jim Schwartz isnt pushing for Suh to do more than make plays to help Detroit win. Suhs statistics have slipped since his rookie year in 2010, when the No. 2 overall pick had 49 solo tackles, including 10 sacks. He made fewer tackles in each of the next two years with four- and eight-sack seasons. "As a defensive tackle, sometimes you have to create plays for others that dont result in a statistic," Suh said. "Im fine with that as long as the job gets done and we win." In the meantime, Suh has developed a reputation as a dirty player. He was fined $30,000 last season for unnecessary roughness when his cleat collided with Houston quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin area. The league suspended Suh for two games in 2010 for stomping on Green Bays Evan Dietrich-Smith. That Thanksgiving game came during a season in which he roughed up QBs in questionable ways. Hes hoping for a drama-free, successful 2013. "You always want to be recognized for what you do on the field to help your team win," Suh told The AP. "All the other nonsense and noise, to me, its over." Suh doesnt think he should be labeled a dirty player. "Look at my track record," he said. "Habits are things you continuously do." Suh has regularly done unique activities with his free time during offseasons. He appeared on the ABC reality show "Splash" earlier this year and was previously on a reality dating show and in a car race. "I had a great experience and got some friendships out of Splash, and from an athletic standpoint, it was a chance to challenge myself outside of my comfort zone," Suh said. "Being able to adapt to different elements is something I pride myself on." Detroits leadership structure on defence was altered as soon as Vanden Bosch was released in February and when the team didnt re-sign Avril and Williams as free agents. Defensive co-ordinator Gunther Cunningham recalled being told by one of the teams strength coaches that Suh was doing a good job of leading his group. "Hes being a real team guy and hasnt lost his ability," Cunningham said. "So, thats a good thing." Suh said it would be great if his extra efforts lead to him becoming a team captain. "It would be a tremendous honour for my peers to vote for me to lead them," he said. NOTES: RB Reggie Bush said he wasnt concerned about "tweaking" an ankle after catching a short pass and falling during a drill Wednesday. ... The Lions will have a minicamp practice Thursday, then players will have a break before training camp next month. Cheap Jordan 12 Wings .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Air Jordan 4 Wholesale .

Andrew Wiggins made 10-of-12 from the foul line and scored 17 for Kansas (14-4, 5-0 Big 12), which capped a stretch of four straight games against ranked opponents unscathed. With Formula One champion Nico Rosberg stunning the world by retiring less than a week after winning his first title, ESPN got to thinking -- is this the most shocking retirement in sporting history?So we put our heads together and came up with a shortlist to compete with the German driver. Read through the nominees below then vote for what you think was the most shocking.Sir Alex Ferguson (football)On May 8, 2013, with a 13th Premier League title in the bag, Ferguson told the world he was finally calling it a day as Manchester United manager. In an Old Trafford reign that spanned four decades, Ferguson also won two Champions League titles, five FA Cups and four League Cups, as well as the Cup Winners Cup, Super Cup, Intercontinental Cup and Club World Cup. United have not been the same since, winning just one FA Cup since the legendary Scots departure.Bjorn Borg (tennis)From teenage sensation to world No. 1, the Swede became the first male player to win 11 Grand Slam singles titles -- including five straight Wimbledon crowns -- during one of the toughest Open Era periods. Widely considered to be one of the greatest ever players, Borg shocked the world when he called time on his career aged just 26. He attempted a brief comeback during the early 1990s but the less said about that, the better...Rocky Marciano (boxing)The most famous of the handful of world champions who retired undefeated and resisted the temptation of a comeback -- and the only heavyweight world champion to achieve such a feat. The Brockton Blockbuster, who ended Joe Louis career in 1951, first won the world title in 1952 and retained it a further six times before he shocked the world in April 1956, retiring with a perfect record of 49 wins from 49 fights (with 43 knockouts). Aged just 32, the American wanted to spend more time with his family but his life was cut tragically short when he died in a plane crash on the eve of his 46th birthday.Bobby Jones (golf)Way back in 1930, the grandfather of golf became the first and only golfer to win the Grand Slam in the pre-Masters era, capturing the U. Discount Jordan 4 Pure Money. S. Open, Open Championship, U.S. Amateur and Amateur Championship in the same season. He immediately hung up his hickory-shafted clubs, deciding to compete only at The Masters -- a tournament he co-founded but, incidentally, never won.Michael Jordan (NBA)I just feel I dont have anything else, in myself, to prove. With that, Jordan walked away from the Chicago Bulls and the NBA. At the age of 30, the player who had done most to transform not only his franchise, but the league, called it quits, just four months after winning a third successive NBA title. Jordan would return -- and win another three-peat of championships -- but that doesnt alter just how seismic his original announcement was.Barry John (rugby)The pressures of living in a goldfish bowl convinced John to walk away from rugby union in 1972, aged just 27. His retirement came just a year after he had guided the British & Irish Lions to a series win over New Zealand, and he departed as Wales record points scorer. Johns elegant playmaking is still used as a blueprint for fly-half play in the principality.Barry Sanders (NFL)The Detroit Lions running-backs retirement was as much controversial as it was shocking. And it got very messy. Sanders was heavily criticised for retiring two years into a $35.4 million, six-year contract in July 1999. The Lions demanded that Sanders returned $5.5m of the $11m singing on bonus he was given, and sued him when he refused. Sanders was ordered to repay $1.83m -- a sixth of the bonus -- with the remaining bonus to be repaid over each of the three years Sanders had left on the contract provided he stayed retired. He did.ESPNs Alex Perry, Martyn Thomas, Rob Bartlett and Liam Grace contributed to this article. ' ' '
