The Buccaneers are trying to bring the whole band back together, and it looks like they’re about to finish a deal with another player.

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and the Buccaneers are close to locking up a one-year, $9 million contract, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

The 33-year-old Suh started all 16 games for the Buccaneers last season, and has started all 16 games every season of his 11-year career with the exception of a two-game suspension in 2011. (If not for that suspension, Suh and Philip Rivers would be the only two players in the NFL who have started every game since 2010, Suh’s rookie year.)

Suh had six sacks for the Bucs last season.

  1. Say what you will about Suh, and there is alot positive and negative, but consistency, availability and work ethic are beyond reproach.

    Gotta hand it to him.

  2. One of the biggest pieces to the puzzle. He opens lanes for JPP and Barrett by taking on double teams and just being flat out disruptive. The boys are back in town baby.

  3. Everybody wants to play with Tom Brady. If Ariens is smart, he will stay in the background and let the winning continue.

  4. First ballot Hall of Famer

    First ballot, should have been kicked out the League a long time ago.

  5. Good for Jason Licht! He took his time in Foxborough seriously. When you win a championship, you do what you can with your younger core to keep them together. Some guys won’t accept pay cuts/restructures (lawyer Millay), but you learn to find someone else to fill the role!

    Good luck hugs! Get em Tommy and gronk!

  6. It would be great if they could find another Suh in the draft. He’s an ageless wonder against quarterbacks, especially Aaron Rodgers.

    he might be an absolute menace on the field but the guy is a class act
    $650,000 in fines, low blows, late hits, purposely stepping on quarterbacks, driving a guy’s head into the ground and then kicking him when he’s on the ground…yeah he’s the epitome of class.

  8. People still crying about stuff this guy did many years ago. Get over it and watch him play a game or 2, he is disruptive as they get.

  9. since Brady’ arrival Suh has gone from a bad guy to a welcomed player. you want to say its because Brady brings out the best however what I saw is officials playing up to Brady, Suh still made horrible, possible injury tackles but with Brady they were not called out or even shown. No I’m not a Brady fan for these very reasons Brady was given a golden pass by NFL, officials his every win has controversy including this last one. They made sure Brady won as they made sure payton manning won a title on his last attempt.

    You mean if he’s on your team…

  11. During the regular season he fairly good. During the playoffs, he turns it on. He may not be able collapse a pocket like he used to, but even when double teamed, opposing OLs can’t move him out of the way, allowing the DEs to penetrate.

  12. People still crying about stuff this guy did many years ago. Get over it and watch him play a game or 2, he is disruptive as they get.

    He just popped Mahomes in the head in the Super Bowl.

  13. Notice how players are willing to take less to play with Tom…so it really wasn’t about taking less to play for BB & the Pats.

  14. Since the 2014 regular season, Suh has been fined once – $20k for a horse-collar tackle. It seems he’s turned himself around and has become a class act, in addition to being a high-caliber player. I’m glad he’s back.

  15. I really respect how Tampa is resigning many of their players. Most of the time after teams win the Super Bowl, there’s a mass exodus of players who want to get paid and the next year’s roster isn’t as good. Tampa was able to keep most of the guys who helped them win. Fournette will be the causality. He plays a position that can be replaced with a much cheaper draft pick.
