Ndamukong Suh has developed a reputation as one of the most reliable defensive tackles in the NFL. Suh has a career that spans 12 years dating back to his rookie season in 2010. Despite some controversial plays during his time in the league, Suh has made a Hall of Fame case for himself. But his future in the league is in question given his free agent status and age of 35. However, Suh’s latest tweet will catch the attention of the Las Vegas Raiders and Derek Carr.
Suh previously stated that he wants to continue playing in the NFL, per Adam Schefter. But he also noted that his former team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are likely out of the picture.
Ndamukong Suh sent out a rather straightforward response to a Schefter tweet in reference to his career.

It is rare that an athlete openly expresses their interest to play for a team over social media. But Suh is an established veteran who has earned the right to do what he wants. But would the Raiders and Suh make for a good fit?
The Raiders defensive line is fairly impressive. Maxx Crosby stands out.
Crosby tallied a team leading 8 sacks in 2021. Suh is coming off of a season that saw him record 6 sacks. That number was more than any Raiders’ defender not named Maxx Crosby last season.
Suh is also a pillar of durability. He hasn’t missed a regular season game in over 10 years.
There is no question that Suh could perk the Raiders interest given his overall impressive performance and reliability.
