The Buccaneers still have work to do.

As the Buccaneers are coming off of a magical Super Bowl run with Tom Brady at the helm, the team is doing everything in its power to gear itself up for a chance to repeat in the Super Bowl.

The Bucs have been stellar so far, bringing back all of their key pieces and only losing one player from the bunch, and they can maintain that momentum with other great moves as well.

Assuming Tampa Bay can pull off some of the following decisions, they will be in a better position come the start of the season.

Move #1

Re-sign Ndamukong Suh

Suh has to come back. If the Bucs can afford to pay all of these other options, including kickers and backups, they can find a way to sign one of their most recognizable defensive linemen.

While Suh is the third-best defensive lineman on the team (there is no way to underscore how important Vita Vea and William Gholston are to eating up double teams, stopping the run, and still creating pressure), he is needed as a veteran presence on the defense.

The line is better with Suh on the field, and his ability to dominate in four-man fronts should necessitate another contract by itself.

If the Buccaneers really want to run it back, they have to get their final big-name free agent a way to stay in Tampa.
