With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers releasing Gerald McCoy, the Los Angeles Rams could end up watching Ndamukong Suh head to the NFC South to possibly fill the void.

As tempting as it was to re-sign Ndamukong Suh for another season to put the Los Angeles Rams in better position to make another run at the Super Bowl, deep down the team knew moving on from the veteran was the right move.

From a financial perspective, the Rams knew it would be too expensive to bring Suh back for another year when looking at his asking price along with some of the other areas the team needed to address, one of which will most likely be Jared Goff sooner rather than later.

When taking into consideration that June is right around the corner, it’s kind of crazy to think how Suh is still in search of a new team since training camp will officially be here before football fans know it.

Luckily for Suh, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers appear to be in need of help at defensive tackle with their decision to move on from Gerald McCoy after nine seasons.

Nothing is set in stone at the moment since the McCoy news just happened on Monday, but with the Buccaneers already in need of help on the defensive side of the football, it’s easy to see why Suh would be worth consideration.

Coincidentally, if Suh did end up joining the Buccaneers, the Rams would get to face the defender early on in 2019 since the two teams are scheduled to meet at the end of September, and the revenge factor would most likely come into play.

Then again, before looking that far ahead over this potential scenario, Tampa Bay needs to actually make moves first, and go after Suh if they are in fact interested since the cards appear to be lining up.

The Buccaneers may not be much of a threat for the Rams at the moment when comparing the success between the two teams over the last few seasons.

But if Tampa Bay were to add Suh to a team that could be flying under the radar in 2019 with Bruce Arians officially on board as head coach, maybe that September meeting will end up being a little more difficult than expected for Los Angeles.
