Edelman was scheduled to make $2 million in 2019, along with incentives, but his production following his suspension in 2018 earned him even more. The wide receiver was suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs, but played in 15 games total, including the postseason. He ended up recording 100 catches for 1,238 yards and six touchdowns, to add on to his Super Bowl XLLL MVP Award. He has won it all three times with the Pats, including last season against the Los Angeles Rams. He caught 10 passes for 141 yards in that victory, and hopes for many more with Brady in the future.
Elsewhere, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers moved on from Gerald McCoy fairly quickly after cutting ties with him on Monday, as they are finalizing a deal with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh. The former Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins defensive force appeared in the Super Bowl this pat February with the Los Angeles Rams. Interestingly enough, he was selected the pick before McCoy in 2010 at No. 2 to Detroit. Sources close to the situation say that Suh was intrigued by working with the Bucs' new defensive coordinator, Todd Bowles.
Suh made $14 million last season with the Rams, signing with them over the New Orleans Saints, Tennessee Titans, and Oakland Raiders. He wanted to join a team that had a chance at a playoff run, which they did just that, but he had just 4.5 sacks, four pass deflections, and two fumble recoveries due to Aarond Donald running their defensive line. He has 56 career sacks in nine seasons, including five with the Lions. Suh spent just three years with the Dolphins have signing a six-year, $114 million contract, but had just 15.5 sacks and two forced fumbles with them. The newest Buccaneer has been known to be in and out of trouble with the league, including multiple suspension for on-the-field conduct. He has been clean as of late, but has struggled to find a consistent home, joining his third team in the past three seasons.
