Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and the Buccaneers are finalizing a one-year deal, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Suh would replace Gerald McCoy, who was released by the Buccaneers on Monday. Suh (second) and McCoy (third) were taken with consecutive picks in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft.
Suh was interested in playing for Tampa’s new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, the source said.
Bucs head coach Bruce Arians was asked about Suh earlier on Tuesday. “I can’t talk about him. He’s not on my team,” Arians said.
