After the initial wave of free-agent signings came and went, things have been relatively quiet in that regard. Following the 2022 NFL Draft, most teams have settled on the core of their rosters though several impact free agents remain on the market.

The Las Vegas Raiders made their own set of splashy moves by trading for Chandler Jones and Davante Adams to lead the defense and offensive, respectively. The Raiders also addressed the trenches and running back room during the draft by selecting two defensive tackles, offensive linemen, and running backs.

Just because most of the positions on Las Vegas’ roster look set does not mean they are done looking for ways to improve and keep pace in a loaded AFC West. The Raiders could always use more help along the defensive line, which is perhaps why they are reportedly looking into Ndamukong Suh via Brad Stainbrook of 247Sports.

The Browns, Raiders, and Buccaneers are teams in the mix for Suh, a league source told

Suh has spent the past three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where he won a Super Bowl with them back in 2020. Despite his age, the veteran tackle has remained effective, registering 27 tackles and six sacks for the Buccaneers during the 2021 campaign.

For the Raiders, adding Suh might make a lot of sense considering all the turnover they have had at that position over the past few years. The projected starters are Bilal Nichols, Johnathan Hankins, and Vernon Butler, with Andrew Billings, Neil Farrell Jr., and Matthew Butler serving as backups. Suh could fill in as a rotational defensive tackle though he may even outright compete for a starting spot, assuming he still has gas left in the tank.

As of now, it seems Las Vegas has competition for Suh as the Cleveland Browns and Tampa Bay are considering him as well. Suh could come in and immediately help the Silver and Black, so it will be interesting to see where he lands.
