The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms with Defensive Lineman, Ndamukong Suh.
Suh will be a great addition due to the release of Gerald McCoy and the injury to JPP. The deal, which is expected to be a 1-Year 9.5 Million dollar deal, is something the Bucs can get value for in a position that has been filled with more questions than answers.
Last year, Suh signed a one-year, $14 million contract with the Los Angeles Rams. Suh was fined $20,054 for a horse-collar tackle penalty against his former team, the Detroit Lions. Suh finished the season with 59 tackles and 4.5 sacks. The Rams finished the season with 13 wins and earned the second seed in the NFC. In the Divisional Round against the Dallas Cowboys, Suh recorded 4 tackles. In the NFC Championship Game against the New Orleans Saints, Suh had 4 tackles and 1.5 sacks to help the Rams get a 26-23 overtime victory to reach the Super Bowl for the first time in Suh’s career. In the Super Bowl, Suh recorded 2 tackles, but the Rams lost 13-3 to the New England Patriots.
The Rams did not offer Suh a new contract and signaled early in the free-agent period of the new NFL year, that they had decided to move on.
Will Suh become a staple for what is hoped to be a much more improved defense this season? Only time will tell!
