Ndamukong Suh remains on vacation in France, but he signed his one-year, $9.25 million contract with the Buccaneers on Friday, Jeanna Laine of ESPN reports.

Tampa Bay waived cornerback David Rivers to get Suh on the 90-player roster.

Suh will fly to Tampa next week for a physical, according to Laine.

It is not known whether he will practice with the Bucs next week, but they hold their mandatory minicamp June 4-6.

The defensive tackle, a five-time Pro Bowler, will join his third team in three seasons. He spent five seasons in Detroit, three in Miami and was with the Rams last year.

He replaces Gerald McCoy in Tampa.

  1. Mailing it in. A sign of things to come, which is likely why no one signed him until the Bucs took him on a 1-year flyer.

  2. This “trade” makes no sense. Essentially the Buc’s “traded” McCoy for Suh and $3MM in cap space. Given McCoy was a proven inside threat who was a team leader both inside the locker room AND the Community, it seems odd they get in return an equal talent, but one that has NEVER been a team leader, a community contributor OR as a consistent player game in and game out. And that was with the RAMS who went to the Superbowl (where Suh disappeared in front of a no name OL). What is he going to be like with a team that will be lucky to win 8 games this year.

    I don’t think they are getting much in return for just $3MM in cap space.

  3. I have to agree a 9.25 million one year deal for a old washed up vet makes sense. Bring in some young hungry beefy guys to clog up the middle and let our stud LBs clean up.

    People don’t like Suh, but that guy will make decent LBs very good. It’s a shame Miami had such poor LBs and couldn’t capitalize but the Bucs have had decent LBs

  5. A decent pickup. A little higher value than I thought. Perhaps the details will show it really isn’t $9.5M , but 3/4ths that amount in reality. $6-7M would be a good amount, with the last third all incentive/goal based.

    Still; I think it was a good add.

  6. Suh was in France and got engaged in Bordeaux. He has been at the French Open Tennis.
    Good for him, to get away from all the nonsense here about himself.
