Report: Buccaneers, Suh Expected To Reach Deal

Per multiple reports, the Buccaneers and DT Ndamukong Suh are reaching a one year deal

NFL: Super Bowl LIII-New England Patriots vs Los Angeles Rams Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

Per Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport, the Buccaneers are closing in on a one year deal with star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. Tampa Bay cleared $13-million dollars Monday after releasing Gerald McCoy only to sign his replacement the next day.

Speculation on this move began shortly after McCoy’s release Monday. Though this isn’t really an “upgrade” in the true sense of the word, head coach Bruce Arians seems to be looking for a little more attitude along the defensive line. Suh was a solid player for the Los Angeles Rams last season while playing in a 3-4 scheme.

The other thing to consider is that Suh will come in at a cheaper price than McCoy. The two have been tied at the hip since being drafted back-to-back and have eerily similar career numbers.

More details to come as they become available.
