No final word yet on Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ deal with Ndamukong Suh
Perhaps we should put the Ndamukong Suh to Tampa Bay talk on hold.
While it was reported on Tuesday that the Buccaneers were finalizing an agreement with Suh, but on Wednesday, the NFL’s transaction report did not state that the defensive lineman has joined the Bucs, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.
Of course, that does not mean that a deal won’t get done eventually, and there is currently no reason to believe that it won’t, but, obviously, both sides are still negotiating.
Suh is the biggest name remaining on the free-agent market (unless you can’t Gerald McCoy, who was just released by Tampa Bay earlier this week) and has surprisingly generated very little interest this offseason.
The 32-year-old spent the 2018 campaign with the Los Angeles Rams, playing in all 16 games and registering 59 tackles, 4.5 sacks, a couple of fumble recoveries and four passes defended.
Suh, who played his collegiate football at the University of Nebraska, was originally selected by the Detroit Lions with the second overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft.
He immediately stamped his name among the most dominant defensive players in the league, racking up 65 tackles and 10 sacks en route to a Pro Bowl appearance and a First-Team All-Pro selection during his rookie season.
Overall, Suh has made five Pro Bowls, with four of them coming with the Lions.
After spending the first five years of his career in Detroit, he signed a monstrous deal with the Miami Dolphins in 2015, but he was a huge disappointment in South Beach and was released last offseason, when he signed with the Rams.
