Suh is returning to the Bucs on a one-year contract, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Sources: Ndamukong Suh is now expected to return to Tampa Bay on a one-year, $8 million deal. More help for Tom Brady's team in Tampa.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 25, 2020
Suh tallied 2.5 sacks, 41 total tackles, four passes defensed and four fumble recoveries in 16 games for the Buccaneers last season. His return helps solidify a talented Tampa Bay defensive front that also includes 2019 sack leader Shaquil Barrett, who was franchise tagged by the Bucs early in free agency.
Tampa Bay's defense was pretty good last season, especially over the final eight games. The Bucs were particularly strong against the run, allowing just 3.3 yards per carry (tied for the best in the league).
Bruce Arians says Ndamukong Suh was a "big, big part" of what the Bucs did well on defense in 2019. Said Suh and Vita Vea were the main reason the Bucs led the NFL in rush defense.— Scott Smith (@ScottSBucs) March 25, 2020
Brady took his talents to the Buccaneers on a two-year contract that could earn him as much as $59 million, including $50 million guaranteed.
The arrival of Brady and the return of Suh understandably have Buccaneers fans as excited as they've ever been for a season. Oddsmakers are similarly optimistic and have given the Bucs the fifth-best betting odds to win Super Bowl LV.
