Following the news that Todd Bowles will be replacing Bruce Arians as head coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 2022 NFL season, free agent defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh wants to return.

Suh took to Twitter this morning to congratulate Bowles on being hired as the new head coach of the Bucs. He simultaneously offered his services to them for the upcoming season.

"Congrats to Todd Bowles on becoming head coach of a great team that still feels one man light on talent," Suh wrote.

In three years with the Buccaneers, Suh started all 49 regular season games. He had 112 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, 46 QB hits, five fumble recoveries and 14.5 sacks.

On Twitter, Buccaneers fans have seemingly warmed to the idea of bringing Suh back into the fold.

In 12 NFL seasons Ndamukong Suh has established himself as one of the best pass rushing defensive linemen of this generation. He made five Pro Bowls in his first seven NFL seasons and earned another five All-Pro selections.

But at 35 years of age there are some obvious questions as to whether he can still be a force. The 6.0 sacks he had in 2021 are nothing to sneeze at. However at the price he's likely asking for, it may not be doable.

Then again, now that Bruce Arians has moved into a front office position, perhaps one of his first moves will be reuniting his team with one of their best linemen of the past few years.

Will Ndamukong Suh return to the Buccaneers?
