In the 2020 regular season Succop ranked sixth in the NFL with a franchise record of 136 total points scored, landing just eight points behind kickers Daniel Carlson, Younghoe Koo and Jason Sanders for the league lead. The 12-year veteran converted 28 of his 31 field goal attempts for a field goal percentage of 90.3 – with one of those attempts being blocked in Week 1 – giving him the second-most accurate kicking season in Bucs history, trailing just Connor Barth’s mark pf 92.9 in 2011. Succop was also 52 for 57 on extra point attempts.
In the postseason Succop remained stellar, converting 12 of 13 extra point attempts and finishing a perfect 9/9 on field goals, including a season-long 52-yard field goal against the Chiefs to close out the scoring in Super Bowl LV.
After the Bucs were able to re-sign linebacker Lavonte David and outside linebacker Shaq Barrett, tight end Rob Gronkowski, in addition to placing the franchise tag on Chris Godwin, Succop was the next domino to fall in terms of bringing back most of Tampa Bay’s key players from their Super Bowl-winning 2020 roster.
