The Buccaneers have already confirmed that the deal is official:
We have agreed to terms with veteran DT Ndamukong Suh.

Tampa Bay saved $13 million against their cap by recently cutting Gerald McCoy, so they saved over $3 million with this move.
Rick Stroud explained earlier in the day that Suh’s deal wasn’t official yet because he informed the Buccaneers that he had a previously planned trip abroad.
Suh, 32, 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 was once again testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
In 2018, Suh appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 59 tackles, 4.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 20 interior defender out of 112 qualifying players.
We had him featured in our Top 50 Available Free Agents list.
