This offseason has mostly been about retaining their own for the Bucs. Mostly. They continued that trend today as they have reportedly re-signed defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh to a one-year, $8 million contract according to Adam Schefter.
Sources: Ndamukong Suh is now expected to return to Tampa Bay on a one-year, $8 million deal. More help for Tom Brady’s team in Tampa.

The $8 million number will now leave the Bucs with $12.4 million in cap space. The Bucs will likley fill the rest of the wholes through the secondary market and the draft.

Suh was solid in his only season with the Bucs with 41 total tackles, 2.5 sacks, and 14 quarterback hits. Although not the player he was during his days with the Lions he still started every game for the Bucs in 2019. Although he is taking slightly less than what he did last year, he returns to a team that now has championship aspirations with the addition of Tom Brady at quarterback.

Speaking of Brady, Suh and he are familiar with each other not only from Super Bowl LIII (Patriots defeated Suh and the Rams) but they know each other from their AFC East days. Suh spent three years in Miami before a brief stint with Los Angeles before ultimately signing with the Bucs late last offseason.
