Former Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has resigned with the Super Bowl champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

He is signing a one-year deal worth $9 million with all of that guaranteed plus incentives that could take the contract up to $10 million.

Suh was a part of the Tampa defence that won the Super Bowl this year and it looks like they are coming back for another go at a title.

With linebackers Shaquil Barrett and Lavonte David also resigned ,the Buccaneers are well set defensively next season.

After Suh became a household name in Detroit, he signed with Miami in 2015 for $114 million, which made him the highest paid defensive player ever at the time.

Miami released Suh after just three seasons where he signed a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Rams.

Los Angeles decided to let him walk into free agency where Suh signed another one year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In his second year with Tampa, his production improved with his sacks going from 2.5 to 6 and his quarterback hits jumping from 14 to 19.


To fit Suh’s contract in with the salary cap the Buccaneers gave left tackle Donovan Smith a two year extension which saved them $10 million in cap space.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are clearly going all in for another Super Bowl this year and with Ndamukong Suh being 32 and having his highest sack tally since 2015, it does not look like he is slowing down as much as we thought.
