The signing of Akim Hicks defensive tackle Buccaneers on June 1 marked the end of the line for Ndamukong Su in Tampa. Indeed, that was Suh’s impression when he saw the news.
“It looks like the Bucs have fallen out of the picture,” Suh said on ESPN on Monday via Adam Schefter.
Suh, 35, has made it clear that he hopes to continue playing.
Su signed one-year agreements with the Bucs on May 21, 2019, March 25, 2020, and March 24, 2021. The deals were for $9.25 million, $8 million and $9 million, respectively. It should attract a lot of interest before the training camps open.
The second overall pick in the 2010 draft also played for the Lions, Dolphins, and Rams.
He appeared in Super Bowl LIII with the Rams, won Super Bowl LV with the Bucks, and played in 191 of 193 possible career games, starting from all 191. The two games he missed were in his second season in 2011.
Su’s last Pro Bowl was in 2016.
