- Former All-Pro DT Ndamukong Suh announced he likely won’t be returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2022.
- Suh also dropped a big hint about where he thinks he’d like to continue his career.
- NFL fans had other ideas for the five-time Pro Bowler.
Ndamukong Suh has been a (literally) big part of a Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense that has been among the tops in the league since 2019.
Now it appears that Tampa Bay will have to move on without him. Suh went on ESPN’s NFL Live on Monday and said that his future likely lies elsewhere.
And @NdamukongSuh on ESPN2’s NFL Live, on where he might be in the future: “It looks like the Bucs are out of the picture.”
But Suh did say he would like to continue playing.

While he didn’t give any hints on where he would be playing, he did say that he has no plans on retiring. The five-time Pro Bowler started all 17 games for Tampa in 2021, notching 27 tackles, seven tackles for loss, six sacks and 13 quarterback hits.
The six sacks were tied for 14th among all defensive tackles in the league. So it’s clear he still has some gas left in the tank.
Ndamukong Suh Drops Hint On Future
While he didn’t say on NFL Live where he’ll be playing in 2022, Suh gave a pretty big suggestion on Twitter on Tuesday morning.
Whether he’s trolling fans or not, it appears that one of the NFL’s most polarizing players may have his eyes on one of the league’s most polarizing franchises.
The Raiders signed four defensive tackles in free agency: Bilal Nichols, Andrew Billings, Vernon Butler and Kyle Pecko. But competition appears wide open for a starting spot alongside Johnathan Hankins.
Las Vegas fans were all about a potential Suh signing.

But fans of other teams weren’t quite as sold.

It’s pretty clear that, at least among fans, Ndamukong Suh has plenty of suitors heading into the 2022 NFL season.
