Justin Tuck made sure today when he was talking to media to make a pitch to his friend Ndamukong Suh.
“Can I use this as a pulpit to get him to Oakland right now?” Tuck said on Thursday morning, via MLive.com. “He seems to be an Oakland Raider.”
Tuck says that Suh’s physical style of play, which extends beyond the whistle sometimes, would fit a Raider image branded when the team was a feared franchise in the 1970s and 80s
“He’s Raider-ish,” Tuck said. “That’s one of the reasons why I know Raider Nation would applaud that move, beyond the fact he’s an awesome football player. But he kind of fits the mold of the toughness and the ferocious play that build the Oakland Raiders.”
“I know Raider Nation would love to have him,” Tuck said. “I think Detroit would love to keep him. But, you know, hopefully it works out for us and I get an opportunity to play with that guy, because it would be phenomenal for what we’re trying to build in Oakland.”
