Ian Rapoport confirms the news and adds that Suh wanted to return and play for DC Todd Bowles. A deal is expected to officially be in place at some point in the near future, according to Rapoport.
One report recently mentioned that Suh was being considered by the Cowboys, but they’ve since signed Dontari Poe along with Gerald McCoy, so it appears as though Suh’s best opportunity was to return to Tampa Bay.
Suh, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Lions back in 2010. He spent five years in Detroit before signing a six-year, $114 million contract that included $60 million guaranteed with the Dolphins a few years ago.
The Dolphins designated Suh as a post-June 1 release last year and he would go on to sign a one-year, $14 million contract with the Rams. He signed a one-year, $9.25 million contract with the Buccaneers last year.
In 2019, Suh appeared in all 16 games for the Buccaneers and recorded 41 tackles, 2.5 sacks, four fumble recoveries, two defensive touchdowns and four passes defended.
