He’s had a hall of fame career where he’s terrorized QBs and drawn the ire of officiating crews because he’s known for playing dirty at times. He’s gotten himself a pretty sizeable contract where he made mega millions. And now he’s finally gotten a Super Bowl ring.
It would not surprised me if he hangs up his pads at this point and I wouldn’t blame him if he goes that route.
Pure speculation by a talking head. It has as much validity as me saying he will be with the Bucs this season. Until Suh decides such rhetoric is just driveling woman like gossip. Suh has already stated he wants to return which at this time would seem to validate MO.

I think the joys of twins will reinvigorate him for one more run. He has very high business acumen and deeply involved with off field investments. Hangs with Warren Buffett , etc. Why not grab one more nice chunk of money and get 2 rings. Three SB with 2 rings would get help with HOF consideration.
Just another reason to grab Alim McNeil or Tyler Shelvin in 2/3rd 😊!!
IMO the deal is done with Suh, but the Bucs haven’t finished clearing the cap room. They can’t officially sign him without having the cap room to do so. The sticking point may be getting the deal done with the offensive linemen. If you want to give them a lucrative extension, you better make sure you really want to commit to them for the next few years.
However, If he is indeed taking his time the Bucs need to put a date on his final answer. Let’s say we wait another 2 weeks and he retires…we will miss out on a lot of the remaining best DT’s who likely sign for cheap elsewhere.
I’d want an answer from Suh in the next week or I am putting an offer to Jurrell Casey or Geno Atkins.
For those saying we overpaid for Suh at 9 million. We paid him 8 million last year and we won a Super Bowl. Mainly in part because of him. Without Suh filling in when Vea broke his ankle we don’t win anything. Giving him an extra million is appreciation for a job well done.
9 mil for a 34 year old Suh who’s play has been regressing every year for the last 3-4 years.
Geno Atkins, Jurrell Casey still on the market. I guess you gotta factor in Suh fitting in Bowles system and the fact it worked. But that is a steep price to pay. Does another team offer close to that on the open market?
I doubt he gets more than 5-6 mil from any other team. Hopefully we still have enough $ to sign AB who I think was an underrated part of the second part of our season. Don’t care about Fournette. And maybe some edge depth.
I hope Suh hires a couple full time nannies to help with his twins that are on the way. Big fella better get his sleep and perform, having twins is gonna be a crazy time. Congrats to him tho.
And I disagree with Barnz that he’s been regressing, he’s been more than solid at what he’s asked to do. But I do agree that 9M is a bit steep, are there really any other teams that would give him that? 7.5M maybe but idk about 9 plus incentives. Not a big deal tho, just nitpicking at an A+ offseason thus far.
