Bucs keeping defense together, re-sign Suh for $8 million

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Tampa Bay Buccaneers continue to re-assemble pieces to help Tom Brady be successful with his new team.

Keeping an improved defense together was one of the club's top priorities in free agency. Re-signing tackle Ndamukong Suh to a one-year, $8 million contract on Friday ensures the entire front seven will remain intact for next season.

The move comes on the heels on placing the franchise tag on NFL sacks leader Shaquil Barrett, re-signing linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul to a two-year, $27 million deal, and luring Brady from New England with $50 million guaranteed and the chance to join some dynamic young offensive playmakers.
