In their quest for back-to-back Super Bowl championships and to keep their title-winning squad together, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are carrying through with their plans on offense, defense and now special teams.
Tampa Bay is re-signing kicker Ryan Succop to a three-year deal worth $12 million with $6.25 million guaranteed, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Wednesday. Succop will garner $8.25 million over the first two years.
In the Buccaneers' Super Bowl LV triumph over the Chiefs, Succop was perfect with four extra points in as many attempts and a field goal. He culminated a sensational season in which he went 28-of-31 on field goals with an exceptional postseason run in which he was 13-for-13 on three-pointers and 21-for-22 on extra points.
Succop now follows behind the Bucs' myriad moves in retaining their championship squad, which has seen Tom Brady sign an extension, Chris Godwin get franchise tagged, Shaquil Barrett sign a new deal and Rob Gronkowski re-sign.
Having been a crucial, but perhaps overlooked, addition for the Bucs ahead of their Super Bowl run, Succop, 34, is returning to help run it back.
