The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl last season, and they’ve worked hard to keep their core intact for another run this season.

They started by placing the franchise tag on wide receiver Chris Godwin, and then they re-signed edge rusher Shaq Lawson to an extension. Now, they’ve re-signed Ndamukong Suh to a one-year deal worth up to $10M per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Suh started all 20 games for the Bucs last season — 16 during the regular season and four during the playoffs — and he finished with 7.5 sacks in those contests.

He was also a big reason why the Buccaneers finished with one of the most dominant run defenses in the league. He’s not the same dominant force that he was during his prime, but he finished as Pro Football Focus’s No. 67 rated interior defensive lineman.

The Bucs were able to free up the cap space to re-sign Suh after extending left tackle Donovan Smith. Smith agreed to a two-year, $31.8M extension — which includes $30M of guaranteed money — but dropped his cap hit for the upcoming season.

FanDuel Sportsbook has the Bucs' odds of repeating listed at +850.
