Buccaneers To Re-Sign Ndamukong Suh

The Buccaneers will bring Ndamukong Suh back for another season, as Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. The defensive lineman is set to collect $8MM in 2020 on a deal that will allow him to stick with defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. Suh can collect another $2MM via incentives based on playing time, Tampa Bay’s team defensive performance, and a playoff berth, reports Greg Auman of The Athletic (Twitter link).

Suh came to Tampa last year on a $9.25MM agreement – this is a bit of a hair cut for Suh, though he’s made tons of money throughout his career. The former First-Team All-Pro has started in every game he’s ever played – including all 16 last year – and he’s set to play a featured role on the Bucs’ D-Line once again.

Suh is past his prime, but he still garnered outside interest from clubs, including the Cowboys. Earlier today, Dallas picked up Dontari Poe, a deal that may have led him back into the waiting arms of the Bucs.

With Tom Brady on the other side of the ball, Suh might just have an opportunity to win a Super Bowl ring this year. The Bucs’ D closed out ’19 strong, so there’s reason to believe that they can be among the league’s better defenses.

    Bucs are preparing to stomp AND deflate their opponents!

    Every player in the league has an opportunity to win a SB ring this year (assuming there’s a season).

    Just how big or small their opportunity is remains the question …

    They still need more on the defensive front. Suh is still a good player. Not the game breaker he used to be but very good. But he won’t fix all of their problems. They are indeed in win now mode so a defense heavy draft should be coming.

    I’d say Quinn or just maybe Matt Patricia for the #1 hot seat. Bob Quin brought his pal Matty P over from NE to replace a coach who took the Lions to the playoffs 2 out of his last 3 years at 9-7 and said that wasn’t good enough. But 12-19-1 is a whole lot worse and if they don’t show SOMETHING then their both goners. And as far as Suh he should at the very least take up 2 O-lineman and clear things up for Tampa’s great LB’s to get penetration. Going to be very interesting to see TB play this year!
