ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Ndamukong Suh asked for and was given a chance to meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to talk about his play two years ago.

Now, the league wants to discuss Suh's discipline-filled season with the Detroit Lions defensive tackle and he hasn't decided whether to accept the invitation.

"I don't know yet," Suh said Wednesday. "I have had brief discussions with my agent and GM. I'm really just focusing on Dallas. I'm not really concerning myself with that, just yet, until the bye week comes."

Detroit (4-3) will have an off week after hosting the Cowboys (4-3) on Sunday.

Suh was fined last week for a second time this season and the seventh time in his four-year career, docked $31,500 for a hit on Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden. Suh was fined $100,000 for an illegal block on Minnesota Vikings centre John Sullivan in Week 1 during an interception return. That is largest fine in NFL history for on-field conduct, not counting suspensions.

Has Suh figured out how the NFL decides to discipline players?

"Honestly, I haven't figured it out," he said.

Suh said the NFL sent Lions general manager Martin Mayhew a letter, extending an opportunity for Suh to have another meeting with league officials.

"It's always good to have dialogue and understand where they're coming from and take it from there," Suh said.

Suh said he came away with the 2011 meeting with the NFL with a better understanding of what changes he needed to make on the field, and believes he has made progress.

"I feel like I'm playing within the rules for the most part, without a doubt," he said.
