If Ndamukong Suh looks to return in 2022, the 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and two-time first-team All-Pro have options.

That’s because according to multiple league sources, around 3 to 5 teams have expressed an interest in signing Suh over the course of the first two weeks of the regular season.

Multiple league sources suggest Suh, 35, would be willing to consider a return to a situation where he can compete for a second Super Bowl ring.

Here’s a look at four teams that could be a perfect match for Suh:

An ideal landing spot for Suh, the Buccaneers have everything the seasoned defender would want in a target.

Having won a Super Bowl ring with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers back in 2020, Suh could be a perfect fit. Especially when the Buccaneers look to add depth to the inside line of defense behind Vita Vea.

In three seasons at Tampa Bay, Suh produced 112 total tackles with 14.5 sacks and 23 tackles for losses and five fumble recoveries, two of which he returned for touchdowns.

Tampa has many of the parts to make a Super Bowl run in a fairly wide-open NFC, and Suh could provide a spark at the track.

Another former team of Suh’s is in dire need of an infusion of championship mojo right now after making their way through a listless 1-2 start that could almost have been a 0-2 hole to clinch their Super Bowl title defense start.

Suh played a season for the Rams in 2018, producing 59 total tackles with 4.5 sacks, four tackles for loss and 19 quarterback hits.

Adding Suh down the defensive line would not only give the league’s No. 25 rushing defense a legitimate playmaker, but pairing him alongside Aaron Donald would form a fairly dynamic duo of inside pass rushers.

Chris Jones is the No. 1 center back in the NFL, according to Pro Football Focus. However, if Kansas City is looking for quality depth at the position or rising from Derrick Nnadi, Suh would be another proven veteran with championship pedigree on a roster full of it.

The Chiefs have a razor-thin margin for error in a loaded AFC race. Not to mention that Kansas City plays in a division that hosts both the Las Vegas Raiders’ Josh Jacobs and the Los Angeles Chargers’ Austin Ekeler. Therefore, shutting down dominant running games will prove crucial.

Suh and Jones would put pressure on the inside of each offensive line and be a potentially dominant run-stopping force.

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has built one of the most talented and comprehensive rosters in the entire league.

However, should disaster strike along the Philadelphia defensive line and a key player like Fletcher Cox or Javon Hargrave go down with an injury sometime this season, Suh could become a key rotational cog for coordinator Jonathan Gannon’s front.

Largely because if the Eagles make a legitimate run for the NFC East crown, they’ll start defensively and limit players like Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard and Antonio Gibson alone within the division.
