He last played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, finishing with a career-low 27 tackles to go with six sacks.
While his sack total is still impressive, it seems like the Buccaneers have decided to not bring him back.
At 35 years old, the best years of the 2010 NFL Defensive Player of the Year might be behind him.
However, he has no intention of hanging up his cleats for good yet after making a subtle pitch to another team.

Suh said, “Raiders could be fun” in response to Adam Schefter’s tweet saying, “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.”
The Las Vegas Raiders could need some help on their defensive line after losing Yannick Ngakoue to the Indianapolis Colts.
Suh could fill in his role and create pressure upon opposing quarterbacks.
Therefore, even the Raiders might have no room for him, unless he takes a bargain.
Suh Could Take A Pay Cut To Join The Raiders
Last year, Suh played on a one-year, $9 million deal with the Buccaneers.
As of writing, the Raiders have $21.6 million in cap space.
Would they want to give a huge chunk of it to an aging defensive tackle?
Suh should take a discount if he wants to join the Raiders.
That way, the team will retain its cap flexibility to sign more players.
But if that doesn’t work out, perhaps the New Orleans Saints could use Suh.
What a way for him to get some revenge against his former team.
