Sources: Suh expected to return to Buccaneers

Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is expected to return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a one-year, $8 million deal, sources tell Adam Schefter of ESPN.

Suh, who signed a one-year deal with the Buccaneers last offseason, may not have put much of a dent in the stat sheet -- finishing with 41 combined tackles (22 solo), 2.5 sacks and 4 passes defensed -- but his impact was certainly felt.

In arguably the Bucs' biggest win of the 2019 season -- a 55-40 road victory against the Los Angeles Rams -- Suh scooped up a fumble and returned it 37 yards to seal the game.

Suh was constantly double-teamed while lining up across the defensive line as the Bucs switched to a 3-4 defense under Todd Bowles. His 261 snaps against double-teams -- third-most in the NFL last season behind Aaron Donald and Kenny Clark -- allowed other members of the defense to be freed up as Tampa Bay allowed the fewest rushing yards in the league (73.8 per game) and tied for seventh with 47 sacks.

While Suh had drawn significant criticism for penalties earlier in his career, he was flagged just five times in 2019.
