NFL Bucs announce re-signing of DT Ndamukong Suh

 

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday formally announced the re-signing of defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

The team did not disclose terms of the contract, but reports last week put the deal at one year for $8 million.

“Ndamukong Suh has been one of the game’s premier interior defensive linemen for more than a decade,” Bucs general manager Jason Licht said in a statement. “The toughness, durability and remarkable football IQ that Suh brings has been instrumental to the transformation of our defense over the past two seasons. We are really excited to have his presence on the field and in the locker room again in Tampa Bay.”

Suh, 34, admitted on Monday that he felt it was only natural that he would rejoin the Super Bowl champions.

“Tampa was always the ultimate goal. I’m super-comfortable in that city. … I love playing in (defensive coordinator Todd) Bowles’ defense,” Suh said.

Suh recorded 44 tackles, six sacks and one forced fumble in 16 games last season with the Buccaneers.

“I wanted to have an opportunity to come back with a group of guys who have an opportunity to potentially go back and earn another ring,” Suh said.

Suh spent his first five seasons with the Detroit Lions (2010-14) before joining the Miami Dolphins in 2015 on a six-year, $114 million contract. That was then the richest contract for a defensive player in NFL history.

Suh has collected 563 tackles and 64.5 sacks in 174 career games with the Lions, Dolphins (2015-17), Los Angeles Rams (2018) and Buccaneers since being selected with the second overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.
