Ndamukong Suh has signed a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Once one of the highest paid players in the league, Suh went more than two months as a free agent before finding a new team. The former Husker is entering his 10th NFL season, and the Bucs will be his fourth different team.
On Tuesday it was reported that Suh and the Bucs were nearing a deal, and the team officially announced the signing Thursday. ESPN reported the deal is a one-year contract worth $9.25 million with incentives worth up to $10 million.
Suh spent the 2018 season on a one-year contract with Los Angeles, helping the Rams reach the Super Bowl. He had 69 tackles in 19 games with six sacks.
Suh has 501 tackles and 61 sacks in 148 career games, including the postseason. The second overall draft pick in 2010 has played for the Detroit Lions (2010-14), Miami Dolphins (2015-17) and L.A. Rams (2018).
In Tampa, Suh will be expected to start at tackle as a replacement for Gerald McCoy, who was released earlier this week. The Bucs have another former Blackshirt on the roster, Lavonte David, who's entering his eighth NFL season.
Suh is one of the most dominant players in Husker history. He was a Heisman Trophy finalist and All-American in 2009 while also winning the Lombardi Award, Nagurski Trophy and Bednarik Award.
