The writing seemed to be on the wall when the Bucs signed Akiem Hicks that Ndamukong Suh wouldn’t be back in Tampa Bay. He confirmed as such on Monday afternoon.

Co-hosting on ESPN’s NFL Live, Suh made his first public comments regarding his offseason negotiations with the Bucs.

“I’m not going to have any breaking news today,” Suh said. “Excited really just to understand where I could potentially be. It looks like the Bucs are out of the picture, but excited to look at all the other options.”

When asked if he still wanted to keep playing, he expressed that he’s still got something left in the tank to compete.

“Of course,” Suh said. “I think I got a lot of great talent left in my engine and people have felt that before.”

Replying to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Suh mentioned the Raiders as a team he might be interested in playing for.

If this does officially close the door on the Tampa, it was a memorable three seasons for Suh and the Bucs. He started in all 49 regular season games. He recorded 112 tackles, 14.5 sacks, one forced fumble, five fumble recoveries and scored two defensive touchdowns.

Suh also started in all six playoff games with 18 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble. He was an intricate part of the Bucs defensive line when they won Super Bowl LV in the 2020 season.

A very good footballer. I see the Bucs making the playoffs, but little else. I hope I am wrong, but I don’t think so.
