Eagles Sign Ndamukong Suh

November 17th, 2022

Former Bucs defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was seeking a strong team and a strong contract this offseason. It seems he finally found both.

The Bucs passed on Suh through the spring and summer, even though he wanted to return for his fourth Tampa Bay season under his good friend Todd Bowles.

Instead, Bucs general manager Jason Licht handed a bucket of cash to free agent Akiem Hicks, who was known for being a lot more fragile and a little more explosive than Suh.

Today, Suh finalized a deal with the 8-1 Eagles. It seems like a perfect fit for him. Philly is a legitimate force and doesn’t need Suh to play full-time. He was starter for the Bucs but cut his snaps significantly last season.

This will be a sad day for the sect of Bucs fans that has been pining for Suh’s return.

    Maybe some people will finally move on

  2. Pewter Power Says:

    Eagles are not playing around at all.

  3. SKBucsFan Says:

    Oh well. We have zero space to sign him. T looks like the Eagles are getting desperate after their loss. Tjeyy have played well to now…or at least kver their heads…and realize they are as vulnerable as any team.

  4. August 1976 Buc Says:

    The no one else signed him blah blah blah is out the window. Hope he does well. He should still be a Buc. Reliable, never missed a game.

  5. Beej Says:

    Eagles have been blessed +up until now) about injuries

  6. Casual Observer Says:

    Philly fans are down – after losing big soccer and baseball games. And now even their no. 1 football team loses. They want the SB in the worst way. But so do we – again.

  7. Ultra ClodHopper Says:

    That really sucks, but good for him. He’s a smart man and played this very well.

  8. ZZbucs Says:

    ouchhhh—didn´t see that coming….Hurts—


    Well that sucks.

  10. lunchmeat Says:

    Washington converted third-and-one on the Eagles all night Monday.
    Guess that convinced Philly to pay Suh’s price.
    More power to him.

    Come on Joe, you say he got a strong contract then don’t back it up with the numbers. As Joe Friday would say, just the facts maam. So how much did he get?

  13. LOL Says:

    Eagles want to win a SB I see

    Link to my suicide obituary:

  15. Ben Harvey Says:

    Eagles needed to repace Davis who got injured. It would be nice to see Tampa sign a decent d linemen now that Barrett is out. If they lose another starter, they are in trouble.

  16. Buc4evr Says:

    Bucs made a huge mistake and Suh has a good chance to get another ring. Wonder how much he signed for?

  17. Goatfarmer Says:

    Glad we didn’t have him when Hicks was down which will happen again.

    Bowels and Licht, proactively ignoring the all-in mantr and going with mediocrity.


  18. Daryl Green Says:

    Watch #59 Avery he plays fast. I really like him.

  19. orlbucfan Says:

    Big whoop!

  20. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Jason Licht is PRAYING Hicks stays healthy or his name is Mudd.

  21. Duane Says:

    Respect to Suh for betting on himself. Would have been nice to have him back.

  22. R.O. Says:

    Eagles Jordan Davis is Hurt. Redskins ran all over the Eagles. Plus I believe Davis was only playing around 30% of the snaps anyway.

  23. Mike C Says:

    Well we don’t have to hear about him from some people anymore, RIP 8

  24. Defense Rules Says:

    This sucks. This really really really sucks. Oh and one other thing … this REALLY sucks.

    If Hicks gets hurt again & we end up missing out in the playoffs because we can’t stop the run … again … Jason Licht should be run out of town.

  25. Defense Rules Says:

    Oh BTW Joe, Eagles also just added 34-year-old DT Linval Joseph to their roster (6’4″ & 329 lbs). He was a 2nd Rnd draft pick from the same 2010 class as Suh & McCoy. Apparently that 1 loss scared them.

  26. DungyDance Says:

    #8 just drove off a cliff.

    holy sh!t

    i don’t know what else to say

  29. Bring back the lawn chairs Says:

    This news should make the sect of mindless minions here very happy.

  30. adam from ny Says:

    ok well at least get the gronkster in the building

  31. SPARKY Says:

    #8 went over the same cliff Suh fell off of last year.

  32. adam from ny Says:

    they see the bucs are coming on strong now, and getting their running game together after rachaad is sort of past the rookie jitters…

    and are game planning ahead of time to stop us come playoff time

  33. John Says:

    Can’t be mad at chasing a potential ring

  34. BucsfanFred Says:

    Good luck Mr. Suh.

  35. D-Rok Says:

    Thanks for the memories and the ring, Mr. Ironman Suh. Hope we don’t have to play the Iggles in playoffs.

  36. Your Mom Says:

    The Eagles smell to me like they’ll be one and done in the postseason. We shall see.

  38. Redeemer Says:

    The eagles have the 20th ranked run defense. I’d like to know how much Suh got guaranteed. It was always about money with the bucs. I believe he was asking somewhere between 7-8 million, which is high for a 35 year old d tackle on the downside. Interested to see what he has left. I’m sure it’ll help sitting out the first 10 weeks. I think the bucs moved on long ago, when he wouldn’t move off that price. I have zero inside info, just my opinion. As to if he can help bolster the eagles run defense, IDK. We’ll see

  39. Redeemer Says:

    @Your Mom, I have the same feeling.

  40. Patrickbucs Says:

    Run Licht out of town lol because we didn’t sign Suh for $9 million a year? What an assnine comment. Arians, never would of signed nor would of Brady and then others without him. Suh is ok now, good luck in Philadelphia.

  41. Beej Says:

    Suh wanted $8 million for a season… season half over

  42. Old School Nole Says:

    Fortunately, Gerald McCoy is still available. 🙂

    Gronk was at USAA in Tampa two days ago. Very thin – more like that 240 weight. Not ready for any in-line blocking IMO.

  44. D-Rome Says:

    Suh was always going to sign with the team he feels has the best chance to win a Super Bowl. Unfortunately that’s not the Bucs. That’s not to say the Bucs can’t win it all this year but right now the Eagles are the favorites.

  45. Patrickbucs Says:

    Beej. We will see what the deal is. But I meant prorated. Think we have $3 million maybe of cap? Can’t sign everyone

  46. Patrickbucs Says:

    D-Rome think you are right. I actually thought he may sign with Dallas a few weeks ago.

  47. Redeemer Says:

    Gronk is done. I’d love to have him back, but it’s over.

  48. McBucky Says:

    This Suh-ks.

  49. SPARKY Says:

    #8 just jumped off the same cliff Suh fell off of last year

  50. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Washington ran at will on the Eagles, so I guess that scared them ?
    Does anyone know what Suh finally signed for ?
    I wish him well in Philly, just not at our expense.

    Ultimate mercenary

  53. View from 132 Says:

    Who cares. If Hicks is healthy, the D-line is fine. The Eagles will choke… you can see it coming months in advance. Hurts is getting better, but I don’t think they are there yet.

  54. Davenport Says:

    I never understood the love for Suh this season. His snap count in 2021 was a career low, he was generally ineffective as a splash player registering minimal TFL.

    At this point he eats blocks and brings an aura of toughness. Is that missed? Yes, but for the kind of money he wanted, he wasn’t worth it.

    Until now, 31 other teams agreed.

  55. DBS Says:

    It only sucks for the people that can’t agree with the decision the team made. The same people that can’t accept the fact they did not resign JPP and Gronk has retired. They just can’t move on. Good luck to him.

  56. David Says:

    VEA, Gholston, Logan Hall and Noches are getting better and better and now Hicks is back. SUH is not needed.

  57. Don’t listen to what he Says:

    30 other teams had a shot other than the eagles and Bucs. He wasn’t signed for a reason. And it wasn’t load management.

  58. Elita Vita Says:

    I can use the immortal sports words here:

    “Say it isn’t Suh, Joe”

  59. brooks Says:

    Superb owl for suh

  60. Goatfarmer Says:

    Glad that we didn’t have him for the Packers game. They play like ass, a disgrace to the league. And yet they, the Squeelers and the decimated trying to lose Panthies all beat the crap out of us. Way to go Bowelswich!

    – not physical or energized
    – poorly coached, bored, loafing players.

    Suh wouldn’t have allowed it. I hate it that Licht let the Eagles have him.

    We should have him.

  61. CleanHouse Says:

    We are a 5-5 side show

    Licht deserves what he gets

    Been screaming to sign him since March

  62. Ash Says:

    Good for him.

    “If Hicks gets hurt again & we end up missing out in the playoffs because we can’t stop the run … again … Jason Licht should be run out of town. ”

    Gotta disagree with you there. As much as I wanted Suh back, I also know it’s called All-in for a reason.

    It pretty much guaranteed a couple years of picky spending.

    Licht built us one Superbowl team…he’ll do it again. Best GM we’ve had.

    dam shame–licht may very well have egg on his face if Eagles beat us in the playoffs ..
