2. Re-sign Suh, Barett, Perriman/Lure JPP back to Tampa
Before I address the former (which I believe is more urgent), I’ll address the latter because of JPP’s likeness in the Tampa Bay community. Securing JPP this offseason would be wise as the 30 year is proving time after time (and injury after injury), that he can still produce at a very high level.
After fracturing his neck in an accident back in March and missing the first seven weeks of the season, Pierre-Paul would go on to record eight and a half sacks as well as two forced fumbles down the stretch. His value is up after his performance this year. Think Apple at $10 a share. Bring JPP back as long as the money makes sense.
Now referencing the former, these here are all no-brainers. Breshad Perriman was a late season addition to this list as he really stepped up his play and production filling in for injured Buc wideouts Chris Godwin and Mike Evans. Shaq Barrett came into Tampa Bay and broke the single-season sack record (19.5 sacks) in his first year as a free agent on a one year, four million dollar deal.
Pay the man. While Ndamakung Suh might not be a favorite people want to see, what can’t be questioned is how quickly young defensive tackle, Vita Vea, has developed since pairing the two. A one year team-friendly deal for Suh would be a huge steal.
