Welcome Back, Ndamukong Suh?

March 24th, 2021


It seems the Bucs are about to close a deal on defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh.

Per the twittering of Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Bucs are finishing up a deal to keep Suh with the Bucs at least through the 2021 season.

This is just great news. Suh is the consummate pro. Everywhere he plays, the defense is just better.

And the thing coaches love about guys like Suh? They answer the bell on Sundays. The only games Suh ever missed were from his suspension when he played in Detroit a lifetime ago. That kind of durability for a quality defensive lineman is priceless.

    The REAL #93 IS BACK!!!!!!


    1 year $9 mil. And then there was one, AB, don’t care either way about Lenny, I would rather have James White.

  9. 813bucboi Says:

    AB & Lenny up next!!!

    GO BUCS!!!!

  10. Bucanero Says:


  11. Bird Says:


    Yes AB next

  12. Durango 95 Says:

    Great news.

  13. Robert Says:

    Great news. Is that more than last year?

  14. ClodHopper Says:

    This is huge. The last “need” IMO is now done. Man I wanted to draft this guy so bad (along with a lot of you) and was ticked when Detroit took him. But in hindsight I’m glad we got the older more mature Suh. Things worked out!!

  15. Cobraboy Says:


    And one day before same time as last year (March 25).

    So he’s early.

  17. Cainishere Says:

    The anchor is back in Tampa!!! Great move Buccaneers.

  18. ocala Says:

    With it not being a good interior defensive line draft this move is even better

  19. Game film doesn't lie Says:

    This is icing on the cake! And totally unexpected to be able to keep the main cogs. I was going to be happy if we kept the main 3 Godwin, Shaq, and David. Gronk, succup and now Suh…wow. great job front office. Thanks to the players for team friendly deals. Now get AB at incentive heavy deal, in case legal issues prevent him from playing. And a RB that can catch and block!

  20. Snook Says:

    93 will be in the Ring of Honor someday and it won’t be softy McCoy. Love it.

  21. spicoli Says:

    Dang giving Suh $9M plus incentives. Figured at his age he’d be willing to give a discount to the Bucs. I’m sure his cap hit will be low

  22. Couch Fan Says:

    I wanted us to draft Suh over GMC but Ill settle with Suh retiring as a Buc. #GOING4TWO!! #FIRETHECANNONS!!

  23. Jim Says:

    This is a beautiful thing.

  24. Ne+ bucs fan Says:

    Rumor has it James white is resigning with the Patriots, still don’t care if we resigned Lenny,imo

  25. onetrickpony Says:

    Great news on Suh

  26. Bucamania Says:

    GREAT news!

  27. Casual Observer Says:

    It’s being reported that Suh has signed!!! Done deal.

  28. Robert Says:

    now go get McCoy!

  29. David Says:

    Just heard Donovan Smith restructured an extension saving 10 million under the cap and
    SUH signed a one-year deal. !!!

    I’d love to know where they stand with the cap. I have no idea, hard to keep track. And not my job. LoL.

    Wondering what they got left for Ab and/or Lenny and then of course draft picks, but that shouldn’t be a problem

  31. Wesley Says:

    Thank god!


    Best ability is AVAIL-ABILITY

  33. Defense Rules Says:

    Suh is really the key to the Bucs’ defense IMO. Couldn’t be happier that he re-signed, even if it’s just for 1 year not 2 years. Now we need to draft a stud DT to learn from him this year. I’m convinced that Suh’s the reason Will Gholston blew up this year & why Vea made it back for the playoffs. His influence on our DLine has been HUGE.

  34. Capt.Tim Says:

    Fantastic News.
    Welcome back, to the “House of Spears”
    Hope this is where you retire, big Guy!
    Finish your fantastic career with 3 rings, and as a Buccaneer!

    Now- Brown and Fournette

  35. The Daily Coroner Says:

    Just signed per Pewter Report.

  36. SKBucsFan Says:

    This is great news. He was in the top 4 of those that needed to be re-signed. Now all of them have! Time to focus on the draft.

  37. Bucsfanman Says:

    This is TERRIBLE news!


  38. martinii Says:

    I agree the six big horses are in the barn. Add AB or Lenny and next year should be another great season. I would never plan on 2 SB’s in a row. Just so many factors that have to come together. Still a bit concerned about back-up QB, What’s the plan to back-up and ultimately replace Tom Terrific?

  39. daniel Da Man Says:

    Making my Thursday a super duper day. Sign AB and the fourteen man and we be cool.

  40. Brandon Jeff Says:

    Yeah, terrible for the rest of the league!

  41. Pm permanently moderated Says:

    I thought Suh, David and Barrett were the big three. Especially with no option at DT. Now the defense can maintain while the offense takes off

  42. mark2001 Says:

    I don’t think Licht, Arians, or Bowles underestimate his contribution to our D. He was a major contributor…. hope it all comes together.

  43. G-FUNK Says:

    Suh is truly ” a bad man” of which a team can never have too many of . Go Bucs !

  44. Buc4evr Says:

    I agree Robert, now I’d like to see McCoy back as a rotation DT for a cheap one year deal. This is his last chance to get a ring and he could add depth to the line.

  45. kyle Says:

    Awesome! He has been an under the radar guy who has helped change the culture of this defense. Thank god the Mcsofty coming back nonsense isn’t happening!

  46. kyle Says:

    FYI, McCoy sucks Robert. Great guy but soft football player. There is a reason we packed his bags out of town. JPP called his arse out in the locker room a few years ago from what I hear. We dont need his tired arse, time to draft young guys to start grooming.

  47. FactTeller Says:

    AB, Cockrell, White [McCoy’s Replacement] then Lenny.

    In THAT Order

  48. MRRR Says:

    Suuuuhhhhper Bowl again

  49. AKicknTheBucNuts Says:


  50. Buczilla Says:

    Hell yes! I’d be shocked if we don’t lead the league in rushing defense again this year.

  51. Itzok Says:

    Suh is an animal I love this. He is so valuable and played his ass off last year. Can’t express how much happier I am to have Suh vs the scrub McCoy

  52. BUC CHEEKS Says:

    BIG GIRL!!!!!!

  53. Mike Johnson Says:

    I like Suh because he plays with a mean streak. You gotta have a few of those on your team. I’ve seen offenses put 2 men on him. Thats a good thing.

  54. Mr. B Says:

    Great sighting. This guy is an absolute beast. Him an Vea thrive off one another. You can’t double team them both and it sets up well for blitzes from White , David and everyone else. Shaq Barrett should be doing cartwheels over this. Now all we need is to somehow draft Najee Harris !

  55. stvcl Says:

    Necessary to keep that awesome run defense.

  56. adam from ny Says:

    kong suh is a squad boss…

    this is big…

    he’s an unmovable rock up front…

    experienced, smart, tough and feared by opponents…

    do not call him or vita “big girl” if you play for the other team 🙂

  57. Johnny o Says:

    nudamukong, welcome home brother, you are essential to a repeat, lets make this happen again! good luck with the twins and, if you have any time, give AB a call, let him know the band is back for an encore.

  58. Chris Says:


  59. tbbucs3 Says:

    Gerald McCoy keeps tweeting about how he’s visiting Tampa soon….stay away from this culture Gerald.

  60. Dan young Says:

    Great but please dont step on Tom’s legs.

  61. Tampa Brady Fan Says:

    That’s awesome! Don’t mess with a boy named Suh.

  62. adam from ny Says:

    so 2 guys walk into a bar…

    big big dudes…

    it’s suh and vea…skunk azz drunk from the drank…

    they approach the bar and sit down right next to you…

    putting heavy duty pressure on those wooden bar stools…

    you’re working on your 3rd brew…
