NFL free agency rumors: Buccaneers, Ndamukong Suh finalizing 1-year deal

Ndamukong Suh unlikely to reunite with Rams, GM says

Ndamukong Suh is heading back to Florida.

According to NFL Media and ESPN, the Buccaneers are finalizing a one-year contract with the veteran defensive tackle.

The move comes one day after the Bucs released fellow defensive tackle Gerald McCoy following nine seasons with Tampa Bay, as the team decided not to pay the $13 million he was due for the upcoming season.

Suh, 32, was selected by the Lions with the No. 2 overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft and remained in Detroit until he signed a six-year contract worth $114 million with the Dolphins in March 2015.

He was released by Miami last March and signed a one-year deal with the Rams shortly after getting cut, racking up 59 tackles and 4.5 sacks during the regular season.

Suh added 10 tackles and 1.5 sacks in the playoffs before Los Angeles fell to New England in Super Bowl 53.

Given the five-time Pro Bowl and three-time All-Pro player failed to make a significant impact playing alongside Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, Rams general manager Les Snead said the re-signing of Suh is “pretty much guaranteed to be off the table.”
