Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers have reportedly received a nice boost on the defensive side of the ball today.
Ndamukong Suh, a five-time All-Pro on the defensive line, has reportedly made his free agency decision. The former No. 2 overall pick is expected to re-sign in Tampa Bay.
The 33-year-old defensive tackle is coming off one season with the Buccaneers. Suh hit the free agency market this offseason, but he’s not going anywhere.
ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reports that Suh is expected to re-sign in Tampa Bay. Suh is reportedly signing a one-year, $8 million deal.

Suh, who starred collegiately at Nebraska, should be an impact player on the defensive side of the ball for Brady’s Tampa Bay team.
The former Huskers star began his NFL career in Detroit, where he played from 2010-14. He was then on the Dolphins from 2015-17, the Rams in 2018 and the Bucs this past season.
Suh was the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2010 and has been to the Pro Bowl five times. He has 518 career tackles, 58.5 sacks and four forced fumbles.
Tampa Bay is coming off a 7-9 season in 2019, but expectations are clearly much higher heading into the 2020 season.
